blended farmhouse ale with blueberries
Slow Motion is a mixed-fermentation farmhouse ale produced in collaboration with Brouwerij Lane of Brooklyn, New York to celebrate their 10th anniversary. This blend incorporates barrel-aged and stainless-aged farmhouse ales with blueberries. Last summer the Oxbow team harvested hundreds of pounds of blueberries from a low-bush field down the road from the brewery in Dresden, Maine. After harvest, the berries were pressed and blended with an array of blonde beers from stainless tanks, French and American oak barrels, and our foudre, and naturally re-fermented in kegs and bottles with additional blueberry juice added at packaging. Vibrant red with notes of ripe berries, cherries, oak, and citrus, with a balanced acidity and dry finish.
