The base beer was a collaboration between Oxbow and Allagash. The combined brewing team used a Pilsner base, local wheat, and local oats. The hop bill consisted of Aramis, Mistral, Grundgeist, and Czech Saaz. The beer then underwent open fermentation using Allagash’s saison strain. Before going into a foudre, the beer was blended with wort that had cooled in Oxbow’s own coolship, which they then transferred to us. Wild Rivulet carries hints of citrus, wine-like aromas and a silky, dry flavor that’s augmented by tartness from its time in the foudre.
