Ales made on Gadigal-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.
In 2022, St Henry was made by blending barrel aged golden mixed culture fermentation ale with 630kg of fresh, hand picked, whole, tree ripened Trevatt apricots from Thornbrook Orchard in Nashdale, NSW.
This blend returns to the more spice-pine driven aromas of hive 1, 2, and 3... after the more floral, lighter #4, this batch of honeywax from Tim and Emma contained more Blue Mountains post brood material in it which lends the darker, more intense flavours.
This latest blend has a beautiful sweet nose of soft caramel, malt and toasted bread. It’s enveloping, with warm oak and brown spices. A palate lined with sweet raisins, vanilla and cocoa. It’s full and complex, nutty and malty with a firm oak spice complementing the classic Amber acidity.
In 2022, St Thomas was made by blending barrel aged amber mixed culture fermentation ale with 748kg of fresh, whole, tree ripened stemmed and destemmed Morello sour cherries from Thornbrook Orchard in Nashdale, NSW.
