We are excited to announce that Wildflower Gold Blend #30 will be available online and for take-away/collection from 12pm (Sydney time) on Friday 5 February 2021.
Gold is a blended, barrel aged Australian Wild Ale. Gold Blend #30 is a blend of six barrels - 1714 (10 month old Gold), 1751 (10 month old Gold), 1772 (11 month old Gold), 1828 (7 month old Gold), 1908 (11 month old Gold) and 1920 (13 month old Gold).
A balanced six barrel blend with good oak elements... spicy and creamy, very vinous. Toasty, mandarin marmalade and honeyed aromas. The palate is very savoury, vinous and textured. Delicious blend with oaky overtones and Portuguese custard undertones to finish.
The base beer is brewed entirely with 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) 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 16 September 2020 and naturally conditioned through refermentation for ovr 4 months. At bottling it was 5.0% ABV, 25 IBU and 1°P (FG = 1.004 SG).
Like all our beers, Gold Blend #30 is best enjoyed when decanted off a settled natural yeast sediment at cellar temperatures (10-12°C).
