Informal #5 is a continuation of our one-off series, exploring new ingredients and working with what we have at hand. For this addition we fermented a strong Saison on the leftover grape must from Origins / Sangiovese, and then refermented in on New Jersey cranberry honey, and finally blended back with a cask of 3 year old barrel aged golden ale. The resulting beer has an aroma of fresh berries and funk, and the taste is of fresh berries and stone fruits, with a lingering mead-like finish. Bottles and draft, 8.5% abv. Released, July 2020.
