Wildflower Good as Gold Blend #199355518000136
REGION: Marrickville, NSW
SIZE: 750ml / ABV: 5%
"A blend of three aged barrels of Gold from the cellar with fresh Gold straight from primary fermentation. Our ode to the historical biere de coupage or, for those non-french speakers (me) a young beer cut with older stock. There's a really fascinating history behind these. Anyway, probably one of the best beers we make and the one I am told continually is a favourite amongst brewers." - Topher
Tasting Notes by Meesh: Floral and full of bright lemon lime citrus Motueka character on the nose. A lifted blend that dances across the palate with elegant carbonation. Generous with tropical fruits rounded out with a pleasant bitterness.
It's difficult to overstate the impact of Wildflower since its inception only a few years ago in 2017. Hailing from Texas, Topher Boehm has an impressive resume - from Brasserie Thiriez to Jester King to his background in astrophysics - not to mention his unique house yeast. Cultivated from foraged wildflowers native to NSW, think wattle blossoms and banksia, blended with a Belgian saison strain, creating something truly individual which speaks of place. Topher even sprayed the entire brewery with inoculated wort when he moved in, just to make sure everything was literally covered in the house culture.
