Wildflower x Mike Bennie - Foudre Beer #2 - Still


An ale made with drinks writer and friend, Mike Bennie. Brewed in July 2018, this ale rested in a single ex-Tyrrell's foudre for over 4 years. We have bottled the beer in both still and sparkling versions. The uncarbonated cuvee is wax dipped to distinguish.

The release of Foudre Beer #2 has been long in the making, spending over four years ageing in a single barrel, due to our decision in 2018 to attempt a non-human-inoculated fermentation, ie a lambic-practice-inspired and that fermentation throwing all the expected curveballs which only time can heal. 

The proof is in the pudding, as they say, and in Foudre Beer #2 we have an incredibly vinous beer with silky texture unlike anything we have released before. So fascinating were the barrel samples, we bottled a portion of this beer without dosage to give you an idea and the opportunity to compare what carbonation does to a drink of this age.

"Lemon cordial, lime and orange marmalade, peach tea. Engaging nose full of fruits and savoury counterpoints. Sweet vanilla oak and lots of it. An ephemeral palate. Fleeting but intense whilst it’s there. Big lime notes, sweet stone fruit and a strong oak presence. Zippy fruit tingle acidity and a fruit tea tannin brings the palate to a close." - Luke's tasting notes.
