Wildflower Gold Blend Wild Ale #23

Marrickville, New South Wales

This is a six barrel blend, one of Wildflower's larger ones. It opens with sweet spice aromatics reminiscent of earlier Gold blends and North African spice and cardamom notes. The palate is balanced and complex with a fresh meyer lemon energy up front that moves into a moreish, creamy finish.

The base beer is brewed entirely with New South Wales cereals, malts and wheats. It is made with filtered Sydney water and Motueka (NZ) and Saaz (CZ) hops. Fermented with Wildflower's house culture: brewers yeast, foraged wild yeast and naturally occurring souring bacteria native to New South Wales. It was bottled on 18 July 2019 and naturally conditioned through refermentation for 11 weeks. At bottling it was 5.0% ABV. Best served decantered and at cellar temperatures (10-12 degrees). Notes from Wildflower.

Wildflower Wild-Fermented Beer Australia Organic Craft Ale
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.
