Wildflower Amber Blend #2

.


We are excited to announce that Wildflower Amber Blend #2 will be available at our cellar door and online on Saturday 3, June 2017. Amber is a blended, barrel aged Australian Wild Ale. Blend #2 is a blend of two barrels, 1704 and 1716. The beer in 1704 was brewed in early January 2017 and racked into the barrel in the middle of the month. The wort for this beer was quite pale and picked up colour from a 3 hour boil. At blending, the barrel was showing a more developed acidity than its sister (1702 which was in Blend 1) and a little more moderated funk. 1716 was filled with our second batch of Amber (a slightly different, darker wort) brewed in the middle of February.  Over its...

Wildflower Gold Blend #3

.


We are excited to announce that Wildflower Gold Blend #3 will be available at our cellar door and online on Saturday 3, June 2017. Gold is a blended, barrel aged Australian Wild Ale. Blend #3 is a blend of two barrels, 1726 and NoSai. The beer in 1726 was brewed on 27 February 2017 and racked into the barrel on the last day of that month. At blending, this barrel was showing great signs of both our house culture and a fresh example of Gold. It had a subtle acidity while still displaying fresh lime and citrus characteristics. NoSai, the sister of sponsai in Blend #1, was brewed clean and remained intentionally uninfected for the majority of its life. Alone, the beer was quite oaky with...

Wildflower Gold Blend #1

.


We are excited to announce that Wildflower Gold Blend #1 will be available online and at select locations from Thursday 20 April, 2017. Gold is a blended barrel aged Australian Wild Ale. Blend #1 is a blend of two barrels, 1602 and SponSai. 1602 is the second barrel we filled in the year 2016 (this is how we denote the barrels at Wildflower). The beer was brewed in late December 2016 and racked into the barrel on the last day of that year. This barrel was a superior example of what our house culture of brewers yeast and native wild yeasts shows. It has lent to the blend significant funk, moderate acidity and interesting fermentation characteristics. SponSai has a great history best told in person. The beer...

Wildflower Amber Blend #1

We are excited to announce that Wildflower Amber Blend #1 will be available online and at select locations from Thursday 20 April, 2017. Amber is a blended barrel aged Australian Wild Ale. Blend #1 is a blend of two barrels, 1702 and 1717. The beer in 1702  was brewed in early January 2017 and racked into the barrel in the middle of the month. The wort for this beer was quite pale and picked up colour from a 3 hour boil. At blending, the barrel was showing a lot of acid complexity that lent to the blend the moderate tartness we aim for in the Amber. 1717 was filled with our second batch of Amber (a slightly different, darker wort) brewed in the middle of February.  In its spent...
