Farmageddon (Raspberry & Black Raspberry - 2019)
FRUITED, BARREL AGED WILD FARMHOUSE ALE BLEND
Farmageddon is our wild farmhouse ale that we've been brewing, blending, and aging for almost as many years as we've been open. The blending process allows us to maintain a common thread across batches, the aging adds nuanced layers, while the brett and bacteria work hard to create small idiosyncrasies in each release. It's a refined, effervescent, and delicious beer worthy of special occasions and idle weeknights.
The balanced, bright, slightly acidic, subtly bretty barrel aged beer that is Farmageddon has come to exist as the perfect base for experimentation with wine grapes and fruit.
This limited variant used 2019 Motley Cru: Black Raspberry vintage as a muse – this time comprised of slightly younger beer and incorporating red raspberries with black raspberries at a rate of 300 grams/litre.
What it smells like, what it tastes like: extreme flavours and aromas of berries and blue icee with a light herbaceous finish, brett funk and slight woodsy notes that come across as berry seeds and leaves.
