Oozlefinch - Innovative Agitator - Belgian Blonde - 6.2% ABV - 16oz Can
Innovative Agitator is our Belgian blond fermented with harvested yeast from a Civil War-era dining chest held at the Casemate Museum on Fort Monroe. We have spent some time studying this yeast and its ideal fermentation conditions and it shows! This beer showcases the yeast's ester profile from a warmer fermentation, with orange, banana, and honey-like aromas dominating over a spicy undertone. The deep gold color shows some haze due to this yeast's stubborn refusal to drop out of solution, which provides a medium-bodied, creamy mouthfeel typical of Belgian blonds. Sweet, honey-like grain flavor and light spicy hops round out the overall impression, along with the signature wild yeast funk we've come to love from this strain. This beer may sound a bit out there, but it's a great entry level beer for lager drinkers looking to expand their palate. Here's to history!
