3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. Color is golden, most likely a byproduct of the wheat in the recipe. Appearance is somewhat cloudy, this beer may have been bottle conditioned. Aroma is of bready yeast, with pineapple, grapefruit, and other citrus fruit shining through. With a name like Wild, you would expect this to be somewhat sour, but it really isnít. Instead this feels more like a heavily-hopped Beligian Tripel or Belgian Golden Strong. Not that thatís a bad thing. Trademark Lagunitas malt sweentess shines from start to finish, which helps to mask the size of this beer - 9%+ ABV. Thereís a slightly minerally or metallic thing going on in the finish that I wish wasnít there, but overall this is another nicely crafted beer from a brewery that clearly knows what it is doing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear light gold, fluffy two-finger head and excellent lace. Big tropical fruit and citrus aromas including pineapple, white wine grape, grapefruit and oranges, with some spice and Belgian yeast. Big bitterness offset by biscuity malt, banana, clove, medicine and more yeast. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, generous carbonation and a light tropical breeze of a finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bottle. Aroma of fruit, yeast, and some hops. Belgian like with fruity overtones. Quite easy to drink but at 8.9 ABV it is one to enjoy in small quantities.

12 Fl. Oz. Pours sort of hazy, golden, small off white head, some lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, some yeast, and some hops. Definitely Belgian like, fruity, some hops and some malts. Quite easy to drink, and quite enjoyable, no bad at all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal straw-gold, good head one or two fingers. Smell is tangy, a little earthy, strong mango aroma. Taste is rich tropical fruit, lots of savory wheat flavors, some yeasty earth tones. Slightly bitter finish.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma was very yeasty and malty. No head on it. Tastes very complex malts with dry finish. Good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle from BevMo. Nice floral, citrus aroma. Flavors of citrus zest, grapefruit hops, sort of fruity on a lightly spiced Belgian yeast background. Moderately carbonated. BIG taste. Great flavor balance for all that is going on. A little bitterness checks the sweetness perfectly. Mild, pleasant alcohol warmth. Lots of brewing skill went into this one. Very flavorful stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy amber with thick frothy head. Smell is pine, resin, hops and bit of yeast, fruit funk. Taste is hoppy, resin, pine, citrus and just a hint of yeast on the bitter finish. Complex and crisp on the tongue. Medium body, heavy carb.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle - Pours a clear golden with a fairly large, creamy head that left some nice lacing. Great aromas: cotton candy, banana, bubblegum, wow! Taste add some malt build. Taste does not come together like you think after the aromas. Some bitterness and finishes dry. Good, not great.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle at home. Golden color with little head. Hoppy and citrus-y with earthy undertones and a hint of caramel. Surprisingly smooth for its alcohol content. Oily mouthfeel that lingers nicely. Another success from a great brewery!
