Notes / Commercial Description:
The Farmer’s Wild Daughter, starts as a traditional style Märzen or Oktoberfest lager. Then it’s barrel aged 14 months with wild Brettanomyces yeast and the end result is a soft malt palate with a noticeable sour finish. Hints of caramel notes and light fruity esters will bring out your inner beer geek to enjoy the sharp complex sour finish. This wild sibling of our well behaved Farmer’s Daughter is sure to raise some eyebrows in the family.

Farmer's Wild Daughter from Grimm Brothers in Loveland is their delicious marzen lager aged 14 months in a barrel with Brettanomyces. The beer pours a slightly hazy, deep copper color and is capped with a thin, white head that leaves a bit of lace. The familiar and delicious aromas associated with Brett, funk and tartness, greet the lucky drinker. The funky and tart flavors meet an earthiness that detracts a little of the breadiness of the original marzen. Tongue prickling carbonation and a medium body round out this special treat.

From my Howler. $23.99 Pours a clear copper, just like the base beer. Good long lasting foam. Wine nose dominates with some of the oak and Brett backing it up. Nice marriage of flavours that I mentioned in the smell with some residual sweetness from the Oktoberfest. Light bodied with light carbonation. Expensive as hell but worth it.
