The Foudre Beer is a spelt beer made in collaboration with our fearless leader Mike Bennie and the boys down at Wildflower.
It's like a lager version of sour beer, tart and tangy, almost all about the zesty, sour ferment characters, very pale in grain or hops flavours, and, ultimately, incredibly refreshing. Insanely so. Whoa.
"The base beer is brewed entirely with New South Wales cereals: Single Origin (S.O.) Moree, NSW grown Gairdner ale malt and raw organic spelt from Barellan, NSW. It is made with filtered Sydney water and aged whole flower Fuggle (NZ) and Pacific Hallertau (NZ) hops. Finally, it was fermented with 100% NSW origin culture of foraged wild yeast and naturally occurring souring bacteria native to New South Wales. It was bottled on July 12, 2018 and naturally conditioned through refermentation for 12 weeks. At bottling it was 5.2% ABV, 20 IBU and 1.1°P (FG= 1.004 SG)' - Topher Boehm" - nerdy chat right there.
