Ives is a label we created for a series of “wild” wheat based beers rooted in the classics from Brussels. In typical Upright fashion, our take is not meant to copy an existing style or specific beer, but to use other examples as a starting point and inspiration. All of the beers under this label use raw wheat and an unusual mash process with the intention of slowly drawing out the barrel fermentation and aging process. This release blended three well aged casks showing lemon and spice notes that serve as a counterpoint to the other floral and fruity flavors, notably rose and green grape. Moderate acidity lingers through a medium finish on this always evolving beer.
