Barrel aged Australian Wild Ale with Moscato Giallo skins from Momento Mori.
Subtle Matter 2020 is a golden barrel-matured Australian Wild Ale aged on basket pressed Semillon wine grape skins after six months in contact with its own wine.
At release this blend has aromas of lemon/lime citrus, white blossoms and soft creamy floral elements. Sweet grainy shortbread notes add good complexity. The palate is seamless. Hop spice upfront tempered with red grapefruit citrus flavours and poppy carbonation. Clean bitterness gives length. A balanced and controlled blend. Great match with food, not aiming to take centre stage.
A golden barrel-matured Australian Wild Ale aged with Muscat of Alexandria (Zibibbo) skins after six months on wine in terracotta amphora from our friends at Brash Higgins, McLaren Vale SA.
This is a really common beer really... something we see all the time. It was very simple actually when I brewed it with my friend Scotty who is the head brewer at a quite under-the-radar brewery called Balter in southern Queensland, you probably haven't heard of it.
A barrel aged golden Australian Wild Ale refermented with natural formed Warré hive post-brood wild comb from the Blue Mountains and Central Tablelands of NSW.
Gentle nose of lemon, spice and pine. Classic palate full of primary grain and hop flavours, lending to an impression of typical WF citrus and mild acidity. Well carbonated, giving lovely weight and texture, the beer closes with clean bitterness.
Blend #12 has a complex nose full of lemon lime, dark spice and funk. Lighter notes of vanilla and citrus blossom lift the nose wonderfully. Palate is delicious, a touch deeper than previous blends but still alive with brightness and vibrancy. Orange citrus dominant, lively carbonation with a clean bitterness giving great drive and refreshment.
