Life On Tap Episode #316: Harvesta (Strange Roots Experimental Ales Harvesta American Wild Ale)

Dan found and pops an unlikely bottle: Strange Roots Experimental Ales Harvesta, which blends local malt and Gold Rush apples for the brew.

Strange Roots Experimental Ales Harvesta

STYLE: American Wild Ale
INGREDIENTS: Appalachian malt and locally-grown Gold Rush apples
ABV: 8.2%
AVAILABILITY: 750ml Bottles, Draft (Limited)

Stats above taken from the brewery’s bottle and Untappd.


Almost Champagne-like in appearance, a hazy, pale yellow with a fine, white head.


Cider-esque with an earthy, burgeoning on barnyard Brett-based aroma.


Apple-forward with bread/pie crust from the malt and a brush of acidity in the mid-palate and finish.


Nice weight and coating from the mouthfeel.


This is the kind of bottle you open up amongst friends or family to really dig into and talk about the beverage, laughs, and life. Pairing-wise, you could go with lighter poultry dishes or tagine to lean into the fruit element.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
