Wildflower Autumn 202313956
REGION: Marrickville, NSW
SIZE: 750ml / ABV: 5.5%
"At release, we have a measly amount to show for the utter work that went into this beast. A fleeting moment of beer, fitting for this short and sweet season in Sydney. TLDR: A beer made with A. P bakery using bloody butcher corn." - Topher
"Sweet citrus aromas, soft brown spices and gentle cola play around a biscuity cereal element. Warm and inviting. The palate pops of ruby grapefruit and ripe watermelon. Malt driven with toasted grains core, spice and cola stretching across the palate finishing with a tortilla-esq grain note. Wonderfully gentle, the mild acidity and bitterness allow the flavours to slowly fade away." - Luke, Wildflower
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.
