Field Work: Rosella Wheat aims to highlight the characteristics a single, unique varietal of wheat brings to our beer. By brewing our ‘Gold’ recipe yet replacing our usual red wheat varietal with ‘Rosella’ wheat, a soft wheat with a honeylike flavour when baked. This beer was fermented with our house culture containing a diversity of yeasts and bacteria collected from native flowers from NSW then transferred into ex-wine oak barrels for 15 months maturation before being blended and bottled where it rested for conditioning and natural carbonation until release.

Engaging nose, herbal dark spices, lifted honeyed orange citrus and sweet stone fruits. Soft buttery oak and lemon citrus add fine complexity. Palate is forward and compact. There's a breadth and weight upfront that's earthy and grainy. Spiced pineapple, apricot, pear and citrus combine with a strong spiced biscuit savouriness. Oak shows its hand on the finish. Company with mild acidity.
