Wildflower Amber Blend #28 - Tasting Notes

Wildflower Amber Blend #28 - Tasting Notes

We are excited to announce that Wildflower Amber Blend #28 will be available online and for take-away/collection from 12pm (Sydney time) on Friday 2 October 2020.

Amber is a blended, barrel aged Australian Wild Ale. Amber Blend #28 is a blend of 6 barrels - 1710 (16 month old Amber), 1730 (24 month old Amber), 1737 (19 month old Amber), 1748 (27 month old Amber), 1773 (15 month old Amber), 1815 (16 month old Amber).

At release this blend has a super decadent nose brimming with chocolate, caramel, cola and spiced rum. Warm and comfortable. The palate is rich and complex. Red fruits, sweet chocolate and cooking spice. Oak and hazelnuts to close. Huge intensity. Really damn good.

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 17 June 2020 and naturally conditioned through refermentation for 15 weeks. At bottling it was 6.0% ABV, 18 IBU and 2.2°P (FG = 1.009 SG).

Like all our beers, Amber Blend #28 is best enjoyed when decanted off a settled natural yeast sediment at cellar temperatures (10-12°C).
