Trillium Brewing Company Apricot Stonington

Apricot Stonington


Trillium Brewing Company in Canton, Massachusetts, United States 🇺🇸

Sour Ale - Fruited Regular
ABV: 7.2% IBU: - Ticks: 6
The base beer for Apricot Stonington was brewed with 100% Valley Malt and fermented by our native New England mixed culture which was collected from grape skins at Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington, CT where JC & Esther Tetreault were married. This New England Saison is aged in French oak Chardonnay casks for sixteen months to layer in a bright vinous character before being blended back into stainless to carry out a secondary fermentation on apricots for three months.

Pouring a lightly hazy orange yellow, Apricot Stonington has a stone fruit intensive nose with undertones of white grape, light toasted oak, and a mild earthy funk. Bold profiles of apricot nectar and overripe yellow peach are balanced against a crisp, biscuity malt backbone and a touch of oak spice on the palate. Finishes semisweet with a pleasant acidity and light mouthfeel.
