Wildflower Gold (750ml Bottle)
Our homage to the rustic, provincial ales of Wallonia, gold is a medium strength wild ale best enjoyed in good company. Delicately balanced, gold shows notes of pepper, fresh hops, lemon zest and stone fruits. The palate is effervescent and bone dry with a subtle spicy bitterness, pillowy body and developing acidity from the indigenous flora. This beer undergoes a warm primary fermentation in wide vats before being transferred into French oak barrels for maturation. Barrels are then selected and blended to meet our desired character before being packaged and naturally bottle conditioned for a minimum of 4 weeks for ideal carbonation. Only then do we release this unspiced wild ale to be enjoyed at table with your favourite foods and best of friends.
Sour ale is a broad spectrum of wild ales, from the fruity and acetic Flanders Red Ales and Oud Bruins, to the experimental ales gaining popularity in the United States which use lactobacillus, brettanomyces and pediococcus in new and wild ways.
