WILD­FLOWER GOLD AUS­TRALIAN WILD ALE

Men's Style (Australia) - - Priority Male - (Mar­rickville, NSW, $22, 750ml)

Although I’m a dyed-in-the-wool drinker of wild fer­ment and sour beers, I’m try­ing to con­vert some of my unini­ti­ated friends into the joys of these more eso­teric styles this sum­mer. This one, made by a bril­liant, solo brewer, is bone dry but shows so much fine de­tail in ex­otic fruit, spice, cit­rus char­ac­ters and a tart-tangy fin­ish. In some re­spects, it’s more a grain wine than beer, but wholly bril­liant for it.
