COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wild At Heart is an audacious new ale in our brewer’s obsession series. In a rarely-employed technique we use only wild brettanomyces yeast in primary fermentation – the very heart of the beer. The brett yeast imparts robust fruit flavors and aromas, and combines with Motueka and topaz hops to create uncommon tastes and aromas, Wild at Heart pours a rich amber hue with a full white head. Aromas include mango, pineapple, and passion fruit. Complex flavors present a touch of tartness, carefully balanced with gentle malt sweetness and subtle hop bitterness. For enhanced tartness, simply let the beer age.

Bottle, RBAG 2014 prelim. Medium gold, average white head. Phenolic petroleum aroma, hints of unripened fruits. Very gassy palate, medicinal with vague sweetness. Unappealing. Guh.

Bottle shared Tony at RBAG. Cloudy yellow pour, aroma is faint Brett, wheat, some light funk. Taste is light funk, some subtle sweetness and a bit of clove like spice on the finish, doesn’t really come together for me.

hopwine (266) - Bend, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Murky golden with small sediment. Nose is sugary lime, cheese and spicy yeast. Flavor is same plus intense vinous mustyness, overripe banana, strong metallic, clove, and moderate acidity. Really weird and I just don’t buy that this is 100% Brett... Not much funk at all and what is there is not very pleasant. Seriously bad and borderline undrinkable.

thornecb (4315) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours deep gold into a tulip. White head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Lemon and caramel aromas. Dry with sweet tropical fruit and caramel front to back. Dry bitter earth finish. Not much in the way of wildness, but nice.

Dan269605 (235) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Medium golden color, big fluffy white head. Sweet aroma of white fruits, white wine characteristics, brett, wet hay. Sweet and tart flavors, fruity with just a bit of funk. This may not be the best sour or wild, but as I am new still pretty new to the style, I really enjoyed it.

tgncc (2751) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2014
WTWBA 2014. The nose is cereal grains, light funk, brett. The appearance is hazy yellow, white head. The flavor is cereal grains, brett. The finish is lightly hoppy, citrus, brett. Ok, somewhat refreshing.

egajdzis (5274) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Amber color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of banana, light bubblegum, brett, spices, vanilla, and toast. Taste of citrus, orange, tropical fruits, vanilla, brett, and light astringency.

rougeau13 (1975) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Hazy yellow-gold with a bubbly off-white head. Aroma of grain, citrus, tropical fruit, mild funk. Taste is sweet and fruity; lots of caramel and some coconut. Overly lively carbonation (better after it sits for a bit), sticky medium body. Not very wild; overall pretty weak.
