Ale made with certified organic heritage malted barley, raw wheat and aged hops, all wholly grown in Australia. Brewed in Katoomba using an intensive turbid mash, extended three hour boil and cooled in copper coolship overnight exposed to the environs on the Blue Mountains world heritage site. Fermented and aged in oak without addition of yeast or bacteria. This 2021 blend is composed of three, 500 litre puncheons all one year of age.
Tasting Notes: At release, Village displays true to style aromas of tropical fruit esters back ended with cheesy, aged hop and oak notes. The palate is soft and highly enjoyable with a texture-ladening aged-hop bitterness which bring the palate to a close. For one year in barrel, this composition is satisfyingly complex and we expect the beer to age well under cellar conditions for 10 years +.
