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.

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!

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.

Bottle. Clear golden color with white foam. Rye bread, toast, dry spice, multi grain aromas. medium body. Nice spicy rye bread, dry hay, spicy dry yeasty flavors--very good--more Saison than Wild Ale right now

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.

Defreni (2771) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2014
Fad: Taster på bryggeriet. Lysegul uklar øl. Duft af banan og gær, minder lidt om en hefe men så alligevel ikke. Smagen er præget af citrus og saison. Fin øl der helt klart virker.

Bomber. Fairly floral on the nose, hints at tropical fruits almost, slight nod to pine. Not much grass on the flavor, fairly wet on the malt, and not really tart whatsoever. Mostly fruity flavors abound. It’s a good brew, just not what I was expecting reading the bottle. Extra point for using indigenous yeast!

IrishBoy (3923) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 16, 2015
Bomber from Imbibe Wine. Nose is honeycomb, floral, and a light casaba note. Clear yellow orange with a big heavy lacing off white head. Flavor is lightly sweet and fruity with a slight hint of funk that is barely discernable. Not all that wild or saison like, tastes like a light weaker Belgian dubble style to me.
