First brewed by Richard over 15 years ago, Flemm is one of the original barrel aged sour recipes in Australia. Co-founders of BentSpoke Richard and Tracy first fell in love with barrel aged beers on a trip to Belgium, which included a guided tour of the famous Rodenbach brewery. A local farmer sitting at the bar of a brasserie close by, guided their beer choices and made sure they felt welcome. And, you guessed it; the farmers name was Flemm!

The beer itself has been aged in oak for 12 months, and blended with an aged, unoaked version, and a younger unoaked version to balance the acid and add vibrance to the beer. A complex and "isolating" beer it has flavours of toffee malt, plum and raisin fruity esters with lacto and acetic acids as well as the sweaty horse blanket wild yeast character creating the burgundy of beer.
