American Wild Ale
Named after distinct pasture grasses and forbs that can be found scattered throughout the fields of the Trillium Farm in North Stonington, CT, The Pasture Series is a collection of mid-strength, mixed fermentation beer that utilizes distinct ingredients and processes, resulting in standalone expressions that we're excited to share with you.
Built upon a simple pilsner and wheat malt base from our friends at Valley Malt, this mixed-fermentation American Wild Ale was brewed more than two years ago. After a long rest in oak, we selected complimentary barrels for blending, dry-hopped with aged Slovenian hops, and sent the beer off for bottle conditioning. Woolly Mullein is a sibling to Red Sorrel, featuring the same base recipe, but different barrel selections, which present unique sensory differences in the final blends.
Woolly Mullein pours a golden yellow, with lively carbonation and a fluffy bone-white foam cap. A juicy stone fruit note is immediately perceivable, complemented by rustic undertones of dry hay and leathery funk. The acidity is clean and moderate, allowing each sip to finish on a refreshing high note.
