Farmhouse Style Saison brewed with aged hops, cofermented w/ Brett C
 

The word? Like farm. But not? You ever see farmland out of a plane window? An aerial view of a farm is funny because it oversimplifies an extremely complex ecosystem run by blood, sweat, Mother Nature and debt into really basic shapes that you either disregard as “meh” or spend a lot of time thinking about. There’s a saison metaphor built in there somewhere that I’ll let you noodle on.
 

What makes this saison “farmhouse style”?

Rustic grist:  pils, spelt, wheat, oats.
Aged Whole Leaf Hops:  2015 Cascade, if you please.
Mixed yeast culture:  a cofermentation of saison yeast and Brettanomyces Claussenii bringing you esters, spice, aroma and the most mild pineapple rind funk not typically showcased by single strain clean saisons.

Farn is finished with a dryhop of younger, fresher, more vibrant Hop Head Farms MI-grown Cascades to amplify aromas of grapefruit zest and herbal orange rind.


Aroma:
Shortbread. Grapefruit peel. Orange peel. Dry pepper.

Tasting:
Dole's Peach Cup. Coriander. Orange breakfast scones. Dried pineapple.

deus ex forager

Mixed Fermentation Cherry Beer. (2020 Harvest)
 

It's really important to me that our beers have a point of view. I love the idea that they can carry a sense of time and place. Here in Wisconsin, we are spoiled by the proximity and access to world class fruits like Door County Cherries that, each year, are the embodiment of the growing season behind, entirely locked within the fruit picked during harvest season. Not dissimilar to wine vintages.

Deus Ex Forager (2020 Harvest)  is a blend of 9 and 11-month farmhouse beers fermented and aged in French Oak wine barrels. Whole Door County Tart Montmorency Cherries were added at 2lbs/gal into barrels one day after harvest to referment. We count on these whole cherries to provide natural color, fermentable sugar, tannin and a subtle, mild and earthy flavor of raw cherry fruit, rather than "cherry flavored" things.

Aroma:
Red Tootsie Pop. Fruit Snacks. Oak Cellar Funk.

Tasting:
Fruit Roll-Ups. Tannic Pinot Vibes. Boldly supported by drying cherry skin. Vanilla almond stage crew–hiding, yet facilitating. Lively, bright carbonation.

Many phases

Blended Farmhouse Beer. (Blend 001)
 

I am so excited about this beer. The majority of our beers are fermented entirely with mixed wild yeast and bacteria cultures in French Oak wine barrels. Each barrel ends up producing its own sort of unique beer. It would be very rare for a single barrel to contain the complete balance of body, acid, bitterness, flavor and aroma on its own. So we blend to construct a more "complete" beer where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Many Phases (Blend 001) is constructed from 9 and 14-month farmhouse beers fermented and aged in French Oak wine barrels.

Aroma:
Honey-drizzled lemon rind.
Indiana Jones' hat.

Tasting:
Dried apricots. Honeycomb. 
Grapefruit rind. Oaky Chardonnay.

Farmhouse Style Raspberry Beer. (2020 Harvest)
 

LAUNCHDOWN! Hell yeah. This beer was a joyous project. Let’s get right to it: despite its color, this is not a sweet beer. It has sweetness, but is fundamentally and intentionally dry. No lactose. No wacky shit. It features acidity, but isn't what we would deem “sour”.

No lactic acid-producing bacteria were used to make this beer.

The 10, 12 & 14-month base beers selected for this blend were highly attenuated and came from neutral French Oak barrels, showcasing flavors of white grape, unripe peach and lemon curd– serving as a mild but characterful foundation for fruiting. Together, the blend was minerally and soft, with a pleasant, supportive acidity. The blend was racked into a 500L Pinot Noir Puncheon onto several hundred pounds of whole, Wisconsin-grown red & black raspberries.  After several fruit cap punchdowns, the beer and fruit mingled for 6 weeks.

The sugar from this fruit was further fermented out almost entirely, leaving a fleshy, authentic, bright & earthy raspberry flavor and aroma with a truly stunning color. Mild tannin from the countless tiny seeds add a boost of mouthfeel to the otherwise dry structure of the beer that is impossible to replicate with syrups, purees or concentrates. The foam on this beer is a fun shade of light violet. Given the chance to recede and warm slightly, you'll have a very natural wine-like experience in the glass– fun in general, but especially if you're a fan of the more “lively” natural red or skin contact wines, this one evoking Cab Franc & Syrah. 

Aroma:
Fresh raspberry. Twizzlers, roses, Welch's Grape Jelly, wet earth
Tasting:
Raspberry sorbet. Macerated strawberry, rhubarb, black cherry jam
