1. Boon Oude Schaarbeekse Kriek 2019 375ml Bottle
This Schaarbeekse cherry is a variety tart-acidic cherry which was unique to the Lambic Region that was always used for Kriek. The supply decreased substantially over the years and became less common for use in fruit lambic. So to make a Kriek with these cherries is to be truly Traditional.
Oude Kriek Boon is one of the finest examples of the 100% spontaneous fermentation fruit-Lambic style. 400 g of wild cherries per litre are fermented together with a blend of young and old Boon Lambic that has been aged in oak casks. After clarification, the Oude kriek is kegged and refermented. It is unsweetened, unfiltered, unpasteurised and has no artificial flavourings, preservatives or colourings added. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name.
2. Wildflower Gold Blend 750ml Bottle
Our homage to the rustic, provincial ales of Wallonia, gold is a medium strength wild ale best enjoyed in good company. 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 our desired character before being packaged and naturally bottle conditioned for a minimum of 4 weeks for ideal carbonation. Only then do we release this unspiced wild ale to be enjoyed at table with your favourite foods and best of friends.
3. Slow Lane Little One Mixed Fermentation Table Beer 375ml Can
Table beers are light bodied, low alcohol beers that were popular in medieval Belgium and France. They were designed as a casual beer that could be enjoyed by the masses at mealtimes. Our version includes a large percentage of wheat and oats to provide additional body. It is fermented with a mixed culture of Saison yeast, Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus to provide complex yeast derived flavours.
4. Francois Blanchard Boisson Sauvage Wild Ale 750ml Bottle
A small batch French farmhouse ale, made by a winemaker. Open vat fermentation, earthy, grainy, and rustic. This is a great bottle to share with a few friends and enjoy something magical.
5. Brasserie Dupont Moinette Brune 330ml Bottle
Brewers of the world famous Saison DuPont, the DuPont Family Brewery lies in the pastoral Hainaut province of Belgium. Moinette Brune is the roasted malt version of the beloved Moinette Blonde. With gently sweet, almost fruity bouquet, full malt body and dry bracing finish, it's delicious before a meal and with roasted meats, chops and steaks.
6. Two Metre Tall Forester Wild Amber Ale 375ml
Our Forester Farmhouse Wild Amber Ale features hops grown in the Forester River region of North East Tasmania. Like the best wines, every bottle of this ale is an expression of regional character and reflects the passion of our brewer - also a winemaker - for discovering and showcasing the provenance and individuality of the unique ingredients. Malty, with balanced bitterness in youth, with bottle age it will develop a unique complexity and very mild and balanced acidity due to our use of mixed fermentation in this product, incorporating our indigenous farmhouse wild yeasts with selected commercial strains of brewers yeasts.
