Our greatest achievements are often those that require the greatest toil. Blend one part passion, one part craftsmanship, a touch of good fortune, and great determination. This is the beauty that exists only through lonely dedication in the creative dark.
Meet Loveless, our Sour Saison, barrel-fermented with Saison yeast and our house sour culture for 12 months, then re-fermented in red wine barrels with fresh blackberries and raspberries for another three months.
With each barrel yielding varying characteristics, Loveless was carefully blended to impart balanced tartness, tied together by a vibrant blackberry and raspberry finish. As with any labor of love, this endeavor involved both radiant highs and loveless lows, but the end result yielded a most brilliant triumph.
Originally brewed to celebrate Ratio's 2nd Anniversary, Loveless has returned for another year, this time with an added touch of blackberries. Bottles of Loveless will be released on Friday, May 25 at 5pm in the 375ML bottle format and Loveless will be available on draft in the taproom for a limited time as well.
