COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Elaborative Two was brewed September 2012 with our friends Brad Clark and Ryan Burke. We crafted this farmstead ale with pumpkins grown by Bens Pumpkins. The beer was aged in a variety of wine barrels as well as a barrel from Virtue Cider in Michigan with wild yeast and bacteria. After a year, the unique threads were blended together and conditioned in the bottle.

Bottle, by way of trade with Leighton. Big thanks! Clear gold, with the option of big murk, given the sediment in the bottom. Thin, super dense, lacing, lasting head. Looks the business. Nose has old, wet wood. Fruity brett. Lemon and orange peel. Hint of the saline and savoury. Background of the cider barrel. Taste is fairly sweet and sticky, turning straight away dry and slightly acidic. Hint of sourness. Mouthfeel is beautifully soft and smooth. Super easy drinking. Light sourness on the finish, tempered by the fruity, yeasty, woody sweetness. Lovely.

Drank on my birthday last year. From the backlog. Clear amber pour with cheesecake funk, lactic funk, and very minor hints of pumpkin. Very "fall" indeed. Was digging this one.

Originally reviewed 1/27/2014. 750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 9/2013. Bright orange hazy body. Medium white head. Great retention. Bretty and citrusy aroma. Wine barrel is nice. Straightforward but nice. Citrus is more prominent in the taste. Orange and white wine. Oaky and bretty. Pretty much follows the smell. A little bit of sweetness in the back. Medium light. Well carbonated. Mildly sour. Not the most exciting or adventurous beer from Hill Farmstead but its very good regardless.
