About This Beer
The very first bottled Wild Ale that Elder Pine ever released immediately grabbed the attention of fans — The Waves Have Come earned a sky-high 4.35 Untappd rating. Now, they’ve taken that same base beer and made it even more impressive with What the Waves Left Behind.
To craft this beauty, the Elder Pine crew first aged the beer in a variety of red wine barrels for a full 28 months, then added second use Pinot Noir grapes.
Let a sip linger on the tongue, and you’ll soon find yourself twirling through layers of multi-faceted complexity. Notes of pear balance against bright acidity, while nuances of barnyard funk give way to earthy oak and subtle grassy flavors. Vinous notes recall a dry rosé, while lactobacillus and brettanomyces add hints of wild funk and a tangy, lemon zest-like character.
