Notes/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 Ben’s 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.

A-Cloudy orange, nice carbonation and two finger fluffy head that leaves some lacing.

S-Some oak, good deal of tartness, mild pumpkins, the flavor has really faded,

T-Starts with moderate oak and tartness. Some spice and extremely mild pumpkin.

M-Lighter, nice carbonation with a semi dry finish.

O-Can only imagine what this beer tasted like with the full pumpkin flavor. Extremely thankful to have tried it. Thanks!

The beer is light orange to golden and hazy with a half inch of white head. Brett and yeast, funky, perhaps a touch of melon. No discernible pumpkin, per se. A solid blonde wild ale. A touch of tartness in the finish. Lingering brett notes. Smooth with minimal acetic quality.
