Our bière de coupage, a blended farmhouse ale. Each year the blend is a little different, but the idea always the same. We blend together a fresh, hoppy farmhouse ale with a sour ale that’s been aging in oak.
This year’s blend is a base of oak fermented farmhouse ale dry-hopped with Mandarina Bavaria & Hallertau Blanc blended with a 15-month red wine barrel-aged farmhouse sour ale brewed with aged hops!
Pours a rustic orange with citrus and gueuze-y funk aromatics. The body is soft from the fluffy carb, and wheat additions from both beers. While fresh, this beer is tasting hop forward with candied fruit notes as well as grapefruit and apple, along with an earthy background from the aged hops. Aging will increase funk with time.
