Australian Wild Ales made on Cadigal-Wangal Land
Wildflower focuses on fermenting beers with a mixed house culture of brewers yeast mixed with wild yeast and bacteria foraged from New South Wales.
Our goal is to balance the tart, funky characteristics of our house culture to deliver beers with length, nuance and subtlety.
The nose opens with floral elements... violets and potpourri with a bretty cherry lift. Noticeable orange and cranberry notes. The body is fuller than previous editions. Smooth and textured up front, red creaming soda and savoury cherries. A gentle fruit sweetness and woody funk to close.
St Walter is an Australian Wild Ale refermented with red wine grapes. It is named for Topher and his wife Bernadette's first son and the Saint Walter was an 11th century monk from the Loire Valley in France and is the patron saint of vintners.
Batch #5 opens with big smoke, charred orange peels, kindling and smoked bacon. A full palate... upfront orange and smoked apple. Creamy before a mouthwatering acid line driving to a smoked ham and campfire ash finish.
Amber Blend #33 has a very attractive aroma, bold spice, cinnamon quills and nutmeg. Toasted fruit loaf, gentle chocolate notes and dark muscovado. Sweet through the palate, cereal and malt to the fore. Deep with rich textures, reserved acidity and a nutty finish.
St Florence is an Australian Wild Ale refermented with white wine grapes. It is named for Topher and his wife's first daughter and the Saint Florence was a 7th century abbess from Cartagena, Spain.
