2018 HELSING SOLERA
This special blend of five vintages started in 2014 when we put our Helsing JunctionFarmhouse Ale into barrels for the first time with our house mixed culture. in 2015, we blended in a fresh batch, packaged some, and put the rest back into the same barrels. We did the same in 2016, 2017, and 2018.The bottles then conditioned for eight months, leaving a near perfect balance of tartness and funk.
2018 AUTUMNAL SOLERA
Similar to the Helsing Solera project, this ale was first brewed in 2015. This ale utilizes the same mixed cultre, but features darker malts to add even more complexity with notes of roasted
chocolate and dried fruit.
