Wildflower Straight To The Poolroom
STYLE: Australian Wild Ale
Straight to the Poolroom is hopped well with aged Summer hop flowers (AUS), fresh Pride of Ringwood (AUS) and Motueka (NZ). After four months in bottle, it's a funky bitter number that reminds us a ton of the ales that got us into this style originating from southern Belgium. Tasting Notes: At release this beer has an extremely funky, earthy nose with a broody herbal depth finally leading to lime, melon and fresh aromatic pineapple on the nose. The palate is broad. There is real weight and substance. Earthy and grassy, gentle lemon and grapefruit nuances. An aged hop punch adds a lengthening bitterness to the back. It is complex but has an air of delicious simplicity.
