Foudre Beer #1 will be released at 2pm on October 5th.

Foudre Beer is a spelt beer made in collaboration with our friend Mike Bennie. A 30% raw spelt ale made with aged hops in the tradition of Belgian spontaneous brewing and fermented with our 100% NSW origin yeast cultures. This mixture of yeast and bacteria is our Wildflower house culture sans a single Belgian-origin strain. Instead, all of the organisms that ferment this beer are from here, collected from flower cuttings, off the skins of fruit or from small scale spontaneous fermentations over the course of 2015. This same culture ferments Waratah, our annual 100% NSW origin beer.

The beer fermented slowly and went through some pretty strange stages, but has emerged after 7 months in this barrel as an incredibly balanced, highly drinkable beer. Its nice I didn't get a chance to blend this one, it opens with a familiar gueuzey aroma of aged hops and brett, the palate is remarkably clean with a refreshing acidity. I like to think of it as an Australian Wild Ale to take the place of lager. It's a beer for drinking, made of and for community.
