Brewery: Wildflower Brewing and Blending Origin: Australia Style: Australian Wild Ale ABV: 6.6%
The Bright Side beers are two friend’s attempt to view the world with a glass half-full. When Bryan Martin (Ravensworth Wines) realised his vines were smoke tainted from the 2020 bushfires, he concocted a plan ‘B’ with Topher Boehm (Wildflower Brewing & Blending). These beers are the marriage of Bryan’s hand harvested, carbonic macerated, whole bunch wine grapes with Topher’s freshly fermented Gold Australian Wild Ale. Aged and macerated for eight months in Murrumbateman before travelling to the big smoke for bottling and maturation.
Tasting notes: Whole bunch character on the nose, pepper and spice. Plump fleshy palate, ripe red fruits, mild stalk, leathery savouriness, textures are good despite being compact.
