Field Work: Wattle
Notes from Wildflower.
Field Work: Wattle 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 it with a diversity of yeasts and bacteria collected from the blossoms from two Wattle trees gifted to us by friends in Murrumbateman, NSW and the Southern Highlands of NSW. The beer was then transferred into ex-wine oak barrels for 9 months before being blended and bottled where it rested for conditioning and natural carbonation until release.
A beautiful bright gold beer. Lots of stone fruit on the nose with a direct citrus character and some rich vanilla oak notes. A light and subtle body that lets the bright acidity shine through. Finishes with an appealing bitterness making it an incredibly moreish beverage.
