Wildflower Amber Blend #27 - Tasting Notes

Wildflower Amber Blend #27 - Tasting Notes

We are excited to announce that Wildflower Amber Blend #27 will be available online and for take-away/collection from 12pm (Sydney time) on Friday 7 August 2020.

Amber is a blended, barrel aged Australian Wild Ale. Amber Blend #27 is a blend of five barrels - 1727 (21 month old Amber), 1732 (17 month old Amber), 1754 (13 month old Amber), 1847 (17 month old Amber) and 1919 (9 month old Amber)

This blend has an intensely rich nose loaded with cola, fudge, currants and sweet spice. Sweet red fruits, cola, oak and spice fill out the palate and balance the acidity. Wonderfully moreish with great length and a hazelnut finish.

The base beer is brewed entirely with New South Wales cereals: Single Origin (S.O.) Riverina NSW grown Schooner Munich malt, Binya NSW grown S.O. LaTrobe Vienna malt and Riverina NSW grown chocolate malt from Voyager Craft MaltIt is made with filtered Sydney water and Saaz (CZ) hops. Finally, it was fermented with our house culture: brewers yeast, foraged wild yeast and naturally occurring souring bacteria native to New South Wales. It was bottled on 11 March 2020 and naturally conditioned through refermentation for 21 weeks. At bottling it was 6.0% ABV, 18 IBU and 1.4°P (FG = 1.006 SG).

Like all our beers, Amber Blend #27 is best enjoyed when decanted off a settled natural yeast sediment at cellar temperatures (10-12°C).
