2020 Wildflower St Phoebe Ebony Plum Wild Ale

St Phoebe is an Australian Wild Ale refermented with plums. The fresh Ebony Sun plums (not frozen) come from Thornbrook Orchard in Orange, where, like a natural winemaker, they allow the native yeasts on the plums to kick start the ferment. The result is a ripe, sweet, perfumed and funky purple fruits creamy complex beverage. Wow, probably a few too many adjectives there. St Phoebe is always an annual and exceptional beer from Topher and Chris.

About the maker

Using wild yeasts, found on foraged native Australian plants including wattle blossoms and banksia, Wildflower are making exceptionally thoughtful and experimental wild-fermented beers to be enjoyed in a similar manner to wine - with good friends and food.

Founded by Texan Topher Boehm, who was both drawn in by the science and wizardry of wild-fermented beer making, whilst also trying to make a beer that his wife would not find too bitter. Focused on fermenting their beers with a diverse culture of brewers yeast, wild yeasts and bacteria whilst developing their own house culture with yeasts foraged from New South Wales. Among these practices is the blending of new and old barrel aged beer in order to highlight the complexity in flavour these wild yeasts naturally create. But Boehm would rather people focus less on the process and more on taste.
