Upright Brewing Ives Blend 5
Ives is a beer Upright created for a series of "wild" wheat based beers rooted in the classics from Brussels. They use raw wheat and an unusual mash process intended to slowly draw out the barrel fermentation and aging process, creating depth. The beer is inoculated with orchard yeast and bacteria. After 19 months in the barrel, the beer was bottled still and straight, with no young beer added. The combination of its well aged character, hop rate and the complex fermentation yield a beer with layers of aromas and flavors sharing notes with certain white vermouths.
