drjoeng (696) - SINGAPORE - NOV 11, 2015
8%ABV. Belgian Strong Ale. Tapped out a dark nut brownn amber. 20ºSRM. Nose is acetic with a nice lactic, milky sweetness. Almost like the aroma of yogurt. There are sweet roasty chestnut type aromas as well. Mouthfeel is carbonated and alcoholic. Nicely rounded full-bodied palate remiscent of saltwater taffy, there are nice nutty flavors of roasting chestnuts, hazelnuts and acorns. Finish is brief, lightly bitter and respectable. The fact that this is wild has introduced some other players into the brew and they’ve created something different. Not lambic or sour ale different, but different enough to be something else. The nose is likely where the wild nature of this ale is most apparent. Palate is pretty conventional...and tasty.

Tap at Kaltenecker Starfest 2015. Clear amber-brown colour, stable white head. Fruity, zesty and wild bubblegum aroma. Taste is very well balanced, assertive bitterness, sweetness and light sourness combining in a harmonic overall impression. Moreish. Easily drinkable. Very good.
