Bottle: Poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was apple and hops. The flavor was funky, sourness, slight fruit like apple, and some hops. Overall, a great combination. A wild ale for those that might not like wild ales.

1 pint 9.4 ounce bottle that was C and Ced. A big fluffy beigeish head. I rolled the bottle resulting in a very cloudy beer. Deep golden brown, like nice tan. Spices are tasted. That includes cinnamon. Earth and caramel. Lots of malts with yeast to match. Not a lot of funk at all and it drinks more like a Belgian Ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with dad for Halloween. Snifter pour was golden yellow with big head. Aroma is lemon, grapefruit, funk, horseblanket, biscuit, and wet hay. Taste is similar with the fruit first (citrus) and then the funk, biscuit, and hay. Big carb, finish is dry and unexciting. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark orange with a high, sticky, heavy, off-white head. Nose is orange, lime, latex, lavender, sage, funk, rosemary, and honey -- there’s a lot going on here. On the tongue, things start off with a surprisingly cool herbal note; it’s almost like camphor or tea tree oil. After that, it gets snarly, funky, and bitter, with some underlying grapefruit and orange caramel notes; I have to say, though, I’m not getting a lot of sourness. Makes me wonder if it’s dropped out somehow. Finish is long and IPA-bitter. I’m just not getting as much wild here as I expected.

Poured from bottle into a tulip: Pours hazy golden with a huge foamy white head. Aroma of caramel, Belgian funk, coriander, and resin. Taste is mildly sweet, moderately tart, and gets a little bitter on the back end from the hops. Solid beer, light to medium body, good stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home. "Bottled on June 11 2014". Clear amber pour with a huge, creamy white head. The aroma is funky Brett with citrus notes also evident. Wild Devil has a sweet malty base, surely becoming deeper and more savory after a year on the lees. Really complex, with black pepper, shiitake mushroom stock, apricot chutney, grassy hops, horseblanket, and leathery, rubbery, earthy Brett flavors coming through. A very long finish starts with a glimmer of the bright, fresh, hoppiness of Hop Devil, but quickly turns to funky Brett notes. Really nicely balanced, more woody than sour, no nasty balsamic vinegar flavors. Outstanding.
