Arrowood Farms Lion’s Tooth 2019 Review

A farmhouse ale in both style and authenticity, this is a beautiful expression of native yeast — Brettanomyces in every way you want it to be, with earthy, funky, fruity character, and without the “horse-blanket” farm smells with which this yeast is often associated. Digging into the upstate New York beer farm vibe, the ale is brewed with “foraged” dandelions — likely those plucked from Arrowood’s very own land. It’s finally bottle-conditioned with local New York wildflower honey, and despite it’s dry, crisp, refreshing taste, our memories of this beer are forever sweet. Flaked oats, malted wheat, pilsner, and rye create a light and spicy base.
