Elliptical Orbit 2019

Dark Sour Ale Aged in Red Wine Barrels with Zante Currants and Dates Added

In 2008 Mike and his friend Alex Howe began a tradition of homebrewing Dark Funky Saisons each fall. The recipe and results evolving and revolving over the last decade. Elliptical Orbit is our scaled-up spin on the fourth iteration, with cold-steeped dark malts, Zante currants, and dates. We aged it in Maryland Chambourcin red wine barrels for more than a year.

The result is layered with dried fruit, bright acidity, cocoa maltiness, and leathery Brett. The first entry in a renewed tradition.
