Cuvee Lactovasilios is a two cask blend made from a Berliner weisse style wort. The brew was fermented directly in several barrels, but this small batch version was done in the ones that previously held the Fantasia, our annual limbic-esque peach beer, and later a round of Five. The fruit originally in the barrel stayed the entire time, becoming a habitat for different yeasts and bacteria, some pitched by us and others coming from the orchard. The fruit also retained some of the Five, which lends this Cuvee a very slight bitterness and hint of saison character. Coupled with the mixed yeast and bacteria barrel fermentation, the finished beer even takes on some Geuze-like qualities and while ready now will certainly mature well for several years.

750ml bottle: pours a hazy golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a fresh semisweet wheaty nose and some floral tartness. Starts with good effervescence and light tartness with a subtle sweetness before a drier smooth finish. Pretty true to style, but could be a little tarter.

Shared with Shawn at his flat. Thanks, man. Pours a golden metallic with a trimmed whitish ring. Aromas of buckwheat, barnyard, cucumber, biscuits, and apricots. Tastes of everything described, with the addition of cotton, Greek yoghurt, ginger syrup, and Saltine crackers by swallow. Buttery. Quite good.

hopscotch (9217) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle... Clear golden ale with no head. The nose is tangy, woody and a touch buttery. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is tangy - not quite tart – and offers some nice fruitiness. The tangy, lightly buttery finish leans toward the flat and mundane. The diacetyl is distracting, but not a total buzz-kill. Good beer overall. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow gold with quickly dissipating white head. Nose and taste of tart lemon, banana, wheat malt, light soured citrus, lactose, saison yeast and light peach breads. Body is on the lighter side of medium. Refreshing.
