Notes / Commercial Description:
Jasper Akerboom and Peter Lee are both scientists at Howard Hughes’ Janelia Farm, located in Ashburn. Taking a scientific approach towards brewing (Jasper has a PhD in microbiology and food technology, Peter has worked in large-scale process and discovery chemistry in industry), they wanted to focus on beers brewed with locally isolated yeasts. Jasper isolated several interesting strains and brewed small-scale test batches. After meeting Lost Rhino brewmaster Favio Garcia, they knew they shared the same passion for locally crafted beer using local ingredients, including local yeast. The idea for a summer beer using local yeast was born. They teamed up and designed a hoppy wheat beer for summer: Wild Farmwell Wheat. Farmwell is the old name for Ashburn where we isolated the strain.

Draft at the brewpub in a standard pint. Straw golden in color with a full haze and a decent white head. Full-on wheaty malt body with touches of honey sweetness and light citrus hops. There’s a full but quite clean character from the wild yeast that donates some quick glimpses of funk or sour, but far from being pungent or funky. Light to moderate on the palate with a moderate carbonation. It’s got a little more going on than your average wheat ale - not bad at all and a nice little experiment.
