The first edition in our Agriculture Series, Bees is an American wild ale aged for 6 weeks in stainless, with raw, local wildflower honey added after a month to preserve its’ delicate aromatics and flavor. Following transfer into the bottle, we provided an additional 11 months of conditioning, which allowed time for our Bug Blend mixed microbe culture to generate desired levels of complexity and balance. Not overly funky, Bees is refreshingly dry and thirst-quenching, with clean, lactic tartness and light, lemony citrus notes. While no post-fermentation sweetness lingers from the local Honey, gentle floral tones dance with underlying flavors of earthy, white wine. Our golden, bright, wild ale is an ode to those tiny, buzzing pollinators that contribute so much with graceful diligence and purpose.
