Topher's production notes

The first of two variants for St Phoebe 2023, this release was made with 475kg of fresh, whole, tree ripened Ebony Sun plums from Thornbrook Orchard in Nashdale, NSW. Unlike other Saints, the fruit went straight onto beer rather than going through an initial carbonic maceration... and after 4 months was bottled and allowed to naturally carbonate and mature before release. The results speak for themselves...

The base beer is brewed entirely with 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 Motueka (NZ) hops. Finally, it was fermented with our house culture of microflora wholly foraged from native flowers in NSW. It was bottled on 27 July 2023 and naturally conditioned through refermentation for 10 weeks. At bottling it was 5.7% ABV and 10.0°P. 

Meesh's tasting notes

The most gorgeous deep pink you’ve ever seen. The nose is all sweet fruit, bright plum and raspberry with a touch of spice, floral perfume and an elegant touch of funk. On the palate, earthy candied fruit and a cleansing acidity. You get something different on each sip. This beer deserves to be drunk on a picnic rug alongside some delicious cheese.

Like all our beers, St Phoebe 2023: Ebony Sun plum is best enjoyed when decanted off a settled natural yeast sediment at cellar temperatures (10-12°C).

Enjoy.
