Gold Blend #41

Gold Blend #41

Wildflower Gold Blend #41 will be available online and for tasting and take-away/collection at our cellar door from 12pm (AEST) on Friday 4 August 2023

Gold is a soft, balanced barrel aged ale wholly fermented by a diversity of yeasts and bacteria collected from native flowers from NSW. Gold Blend #41 is comprised of five barrels, combining elements aged 11, 13, 18, 19 and 22  months and spent 6 months conditioning in bottle. 

Luke's tasting notes - Aromas of perfumed white flowers, lemon curd and funky citrus. Cut straw and dusty summer winds. Vinous and biscuity. The palate is delicate and refined but retains wonderful texture and weight. Vinous citrus and spice work in tandem with the funk and acidity. Lovely oak derived length and persistence.  

The base beer is brewed entirely with regenerative certified organic cereals from Chris and Sam Greenwood's farm in Coleambally NSW. Organic raw red wheat with organic schooner barley malted to a pale roast by Voyager Craft Malt. It is made with filtered Sydney water and Organic Motueka (NZ) and Saaz (CZ) hops. Finally, it was fermented with our house culture: foraged wild yeast and naturally occurring souring bacteria native to New South Wales. It was bottled on 8 February 2023 and naturally conditioned through refermentation for 6 months. At bottling it was 5.0% ABV, 25 IBU and 1°P (FG = 1.004 SG).

Like all our beers, Gold Blend #41 is best enjoyed when decanted off a settled natural yeast sediment at cellar temperatures (10-12°C).

Enjoy.
