About The Beer
Brewery: Wildflower Brewing & Blending
Style: Golden Ale
Format: 750ml Bottle
Henrietta is a blend of golden beers aged with apricots. One thread was turbid mashed, boiled with aged hops and barrel aged for a year with the other being our barrel aged Gold. Both were then macerated with apricots after making St Henry 2021 from Thornbrook Orchard in Nashdale and Yarralee Orchard outside Bathurst.
At release we get a sweet, fruit heavy nose of apricot, guava, citrus… sherbet fizz and nose tickling spices. Intense yet controlled with more savoury fruit tones at the back. Layered palate with fruit across the board, perfumed stonefruit and citrus. Hints of pink fruit and confectionery. Aged hop bitterness on the back palate creates a wonderful vinous-like grip and bitterness that’s ever so moreish. There’s a cleansing acidity but the beer is persistent long after the sip.
