Wildflower Ambrosia: Amaro12243
REGION: Marrickville, NSW
SIZE: 750ml / ABV: 6.4%
"Ambrosia: The first cuvee in a series of beers taking inspiration from the herbs, fruits and spices used in apéritifs and digestifs. This Amaro version was blended from bases aged with pressed Pinot Noir skins, refermented with whole destemmed Morello cherries and brewed with gentian and wormwood. | Aromas of savoury cherry, raspberry and watermelon lifted by a WF skinnsy punch. Dark robust spice harmonised with a minty herbal note. A wild palate, sweet red fruits, strawberry and raspberry with savoury cherry complexity. Frankincense and woody spices lead to a back palate that shines with its herb derived bitterness and flavour. Orange citrus pith, ginger and aniseed meld with the most delectable drying bitterness. There’s layers and a level of complexity here that will reward those who can drink this over hours. It’s beautiful." - Topher
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.
