A homage to the rustic, provincial ales of Wallonia, gold is a medium strength wild ale. 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 their desired character before being packaged and naturally bottle conditioned for a minimum of 8 weeks for ideal carbonation. Wildflower will develop complexity under cellar conditions for up to 5 years.
