Ordering Force Of Nature and Wonders Of Nature from Future Mountain brewing and blending is as fine a lesson as to what barrel-ageing can do to beer as you could want. The former is a Brett farmhouse ale, while the latter features the same mix of cultures as the its saison-inspired sibling, with a slightly tweaked malt base, and is fermented in barrels.
In Wonders Of Nature, the funkier side of that culture is more at play, with an acidity playing off the beer's oaky vanilla flavours. The beer also possesses a fuller mouthfeel delivering ripe fruit notes, finishing with a lingering, gripping dryness.
