COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a continuation of our quest to produce distinct beers using local indigenous ingredients. Wild Sierra emulates spring in the Sierra with the snow melting out of the forests and giving way to fruity/spicy aromas of the trees with a touch of earthiness from wet soil. Mountain farmhouse style is very alive with active cultures of wild yeast continuously changing the flavor profile. We use Belgian ale yeast, Saison yeast, and wild yeast harvested off of local Piñon Pine needles in the brewing process. Our wild yeast also contains Lactobacillus which lends a refreshing tartness to the beer.

Orange and lemon in the aoma, very fruity but a much better fruitiness in flavor than the hefe or summer session. Really an outstanding beer in my opinion. Smooth and creamy; a home run.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Spring 2013 bottle thanks to TWalls. Pours with a hazed golden yellow hued body and a large fluffy white head with good retention and lace. Aromas are of isoamyl acetate, spruce, herbal hops, peppery phenols, light Brett and pine, medium malt, low fusel alcohol. Something a touch spicy that I cannot place. Flavors are medium malty, biscuity and toasty, mildly earthy, clean, crisp, some earthy and lightly nutty notes, low tartness. Decent saison. Easy to drink. Peppery, earthy, odd spice finish. Not bad at all. A bit of (at least perceived) residual sweetness in the finish.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with thick creamy white head. Yeast, malt and a sour aroma. Crisp yeast, malt and fruit flavors with a slightly sour smooth finish.

drsordr (891) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle pour hazy yellow. Nose of sour, clove, spice, tart fruit. Taste similar, with candy sweet and clove. Just a hint of sour in the finish. Taste like a Belgian, decent drinking, but not the taste expected for a wild.

22 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma has yeast, light funk, grass, light tart character and hints of spice and fruit. The flavor more of a Belgian ale character and no dour notes. It could be a sweet saison as well. Did not meet expectations.

Dry with high carb. Lingering tang and sticky end. T - honey, did I say honey. Funk, sweet tarts. Tangy sweet apples. Sticky malty end. O - pretty good, too much honey and too sticky. 6

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours pale dishwater gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is very earthy and musty. Med body. Mildly sour. Musty/earthy/fruity/spicy/banana in flavor. Flavors are not intense, but it’s very tasty.

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle from Beercafe OL, Walnut Creek. Pours clear blonde with a disappearing white head and a barnyard aroma. There is a lightly sour yeasty fruit flavor with some banana ester and spice. A nice blend of tastes.

thetmaxx (729) - West Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 3, 2012
On tap at the Mammoth Bluesapalooza. The guy serving it didn’t know what it was, but one sniff and I knew it was a farmhouse with bugs! Aroma has a nice tartness from the lacto. Nice and hazy, the flavor has the grainy wheat with some banana from the hefe yeast. The sourness comes through very well balanced! This is great and at a great price for an event like this!
