Wildflower Good as Gold Blend #8 - Tasting Notes

Wildflower Good as Gold Blend #8 - Tasting Notes

We are excited to announce that Wildflower Good as Gold Blend #8 will be available online and for take-away/collection from 12pm (Sydney time) on Friday 5 June 2020

Good as Gold is a 50/50 blend of barrel aged Gold with fresh Gold that has just completed primary fermentation. This blend is composed of barrels 1824 (16 month old Gold) and 1827 (14 month old Gold) equally blended with the 57th batch of Gold brewed in January 2020.

At release, this blend has aromas of poppy orange citrus, vanilla cupcake batter soft creamy savouriness and herbal spice. The palate is smooth with creamy citrus overtones. This blend of Good as Gold achieves a satisfying balance of funk, hoppy bitterness and acidity.

The base beer is brewed entirely with New South Wales cereals: Single Origin (S.O.) Moree, NSW grown Gairdner ale malt and North Star, NSW grown Spitfire S.O. raw wheat thanks to Provenance 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 5 February 2020 and naturally conditioned through refermentation for 17 weeks. At bottling it was 5.0% ABV, 25 IBU and 1.1°P (FG= 1.004 SG).

Like all our beers, Good as Gold Blend #8 is best enjoyed when decanted off a settled natural yeast sediment at cellar temperatures (10-12°C).
