Trillium - Fated Farmer Nectarine Wild Ale 6.6% 750ml
The grist of each of the dynamic Fated Farmer wild ales is set on the structure of Valley Malt and is barrel fermented in 500L puncheons with a Native New England Wild Culture and aged for 5-7 months, before refermenting on freshly harvested fruit.
Fresh nectarines sourced from Lookout Farm in nearby Natick, Massachusetts lend this rendition of Fated Farmer a refreshing, lightly handed stone fruit profile. A bright nose of citrus peel, dried apricot, stone fruit is followed by a delicate, balanced palate that dives in and out with light notes of nectarine flesh, candied orange, pink grapefruit and an intriguing funk. A low to moderate clean lactic acidity, some light tannic structure coupled with a lively carbonation provides a zippy finish.
