This is a Belgian-style farmhouse ale. The aroma is dominated by fruity esters reminiscent of citrus fruits along with a moderate earthy and floral hop aroma from the use of Noble-type hops in the brewing process. Has a deep gold, hue that is often hazy, and a voluminous head on pouring as a result of the bottle-conditioning and high natural carbonation. The beer is medium-bodied and has a very refreshing effervescence which, along with a fairly low alcohol content of 6% by volume, makes this a beer to be enjoyed on a warm day by itself or with a wide range of foods, whether casual or fine dining. Complex flavors and aromas in this beer are a result of the special yeast used in fermentation combined with the additional complexity added by bottle-conditioning in large bottles for at least six weeks before being released.

|At the Blackberry Farm Brewery, our aim is to craft beers that are unique and rooted in tradition, while speaking to natural nuances of the farm. As a small brewery, we work tirelessly to produce as much as we can, but still are maintaining a very small quantity of beers. Over the next year, you will see so many exciting offerings with new selections, the building of our new brewery and moving beer into other markets outside of the property. So sign up today to receive news on our beer and growing brewery!
In keeping with the sense of place here on the farm, our brewery and processes are rooted in centuries old traditions. We are respectful of the time honored methods of making beer, while constantly pushing the boundaries to employ modern techniques to enhance the complexity of our releases. All of our beers utilize a natural re-fermentation in the bottle, which produces a soft and pleasant carbonation. Every bottle that leaves our brewery has been conditioned in our temperature controlled cellar to ensure that you get the highest quality with each pour.
For us, life’s vitality and fullness is found in understanding the essential relationships between what goes into our bodies and minds and what we get out of them. Surrounded by the beautiful bounty of a working farm, we recognize fully that things like butter, sugars, cheeses and wine aren’t inherently bad. They’re simply different kinds of energy that, when thoughtfully consumed and balanced, can fuel various levels of exercise and activity.
We are proud to make our beer with a custom designed 20 BBL brewhouse and cellar crafted for us by W.M. Sprinkman. Sharing our values for working with small, independent, family-ownedbusinesses, the folks at Sprinkman have helped us incorporate some special equipment to enable us to make the highest quality beers for you to enjoy.
