Sour/Farmhouse/Wild Ferment

  1. 01.

    La Sirène - Cuvée Bleu / Chardonnay Co-fermented Wild Ale with Blueberries

    State: Victoria

    TASTING NOTES:
    Fantastic juicy berry kriek. Nice hop profile and super tart with a deep crimson velvet colour.

  2. 02.

    La Sirène Brewing - Coolship Collection / Age & Beauty

    State: Victoria

    TASTING NOTES:
    Early season stone fruit, green grass and hay, there’s a homestead pickled onion quality on the finish that married with a sharp acidity to create an elegant and balanced expression of the category.

  3. 03.

    Bridge Road Brewers - Passionfruit and Guava Sour

    State: Victoria

    TASTING NOTES:
    Golden colour. Solid haze. Mouthwatering stone fruit, tropical fruit, acetic and slightly fresh cut green grass aromas. Fluffy, round mouth feel. Balanced acidity. Enjoyable.

  4. 04.

    Plenty Cider - Original
