Niagara cHARdonnay farmageddon (2018)
barrel aged wild farmhouse ale conditioned on rosewood estates Chardonnay grapes
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.
Using the the Farmageddon Batch #12 as a canvas, we transferred the beer onto whole Chardonnay grapes from our friends at Rosewood Estates. The beer refermented on the grapes for one month, before undergoing an extensive bottle conditioning period.
What it smells like, what it tastes like: Vibrant flavours and aromatics of tart white currants, oak, cut pear and white wine grapes burst from the glass while underlying notes of plum skin, cucumber and sea spray add to an already unparalleled drinkability. This refreshing libation finds the perfect harmony between a rich white wine and a zesty wild ale and will enhance your summer vibes instantly.
