Field Work: Manuka Blossom aims to highlight the characteristics a single source of yeast and bacteria brings to our beer. We made this beer in late 2021 by brewing our ‘Gold’ recipe yet fermenting with a diversity of yeasts and bacteria collected from Manuka blossoms gifted to us by a friend in the Southern Highlands of NSW. It was transferred into ex-wine oak barrels for 9 months before being blended and bottled where it rested for conditioning and natural carbonation until release.

Initial strong Gold like nose, laden with yellow and orange citrus. There’s a depth to the nose, dark spice and heady honeyed floral tones. Oak blends with resiny pollen and gentle vanilla. Seamless integration across the palate. Tight and lively, lemon soda, lemon barley and bitter lemon. The palate flows beautifully, gaining some gentle dark herbal spice. Moreish acidity and phenolic bitterness give lovely length to the beer. Savoury white nut, white chocolate flavours linger.
