  • Country: Australia
  • Style: Wild Ale
  • ABV: 5.0%
  • Volume: 750 ml

At release, the aromas are earthy and funky and with strong orange citrus. Savoury marmalade overtones lifted by oak spice. This pull has great tension. The acidity is firm but in harmony with the dominant orange citrus. It’s bright and energetic, the length is lovely and the finish is all sherbet and cellar funk.

The base beer is brewed entirely with New South Wales cereals: NSW grown Gairdner ale malt from Providence Malt and raw spelt thanks to Voyager Craft Malt. It is made with filtered Sydney water, Motueka (NZ) and Saaz (CZ) hops. Finally, it was fermented with our house culture of brewers yeast, foraged wild yeast and naturally occurring souring bacteria native to New South Wales. It was bottled on 22 May 2020 and naturally conditioned through refermentation for 15 weeks before being seen outside the brewery. At packaging, Solera Pull #7 was 5.0% ABV and 1.2°P (FG = 1.005 SG).

Like all our beers, Solera Pull #7 is best enjoyed when decanted off a settled natural yeast sediment at cellar temperatures (10-12°C).
