COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We love nothing better than Belgian-style saison but with this blissful version we’ve added our own Wild interpretation of the style by adding a dash of funky Brettanomyces yeast plus roasted apricots and a hush-hush blend of spices. All of this makes for an extraordinary beer with an array of aromas that leap out of the glass followed by a spicy, fruity, tart and peppery palate and a long lingering finish.

Keg at Hack & Hop. Slightly sour, little sherbet, parma violet, mild malts. Very light vinous fruits. Subtle and drinkable, but not great compared to many other amazing WB offerings.

Draft - Vintage 2013 - Funky berry and some plum. Cloudy copper with a decent beige head. Sweet fruity esters, plum. and some light grape funk. Funky weird, but just OK.

wlajwl (4188) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Aroma is mint/juniper berries and spicy yeast. The flavor is spices, juniper berries, fruit, Belgian yeast and a mix of sourish and a hint of heat in the finish.

airrick2003 (583) - Louisiana, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Appearance: pours with a huge tan head that settles into a very dense layer, the beer is a very hazy brown color, it really does look wild Aroma: raisin, plum, chocolate, roasted grain, molasses Taste: apricot is pretty evident, has a almost chocolate base to it, not much of an aftertaste, very slight tart Palate: leaves mouth wet, lively carbonation, lighter mouthfeel Overall: I think this is pretty good, it's got a nice complexity in the taste and the aroma, it's subtle but complex ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

obguthr (4216) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Mild cherry aroma. Cloudy rust, thin head. Tart currant initially, wood and cardamom at midpalate, milk chocolate and nougat finish. Light and tannic, virtually no carbonation. Wonderful subtleties, balance, and complexity. Distinct transitions. Dynamic. Paired well with my rare roast beef sandwich.

Benzai (9320) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2015
Draught @ Van Moll Brewpub. Nice amber reddish color, medium sized off-white to beige head. Smells quite herbal. Tastes sourish, lightly herbs or spices, a bit ’sharp’. Decent body and carbonation. Not bad but not really my thing.

rondphoto (2456) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 2, 2014
bottle @ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Nearly clear amber brown with a solid tan head, a few blobs of lace. Taste is a little malt and a lot of herb that moves effortlessly through the palate to a finish that is more herb than hop. A unique brew, no doubt, just not one that I enjoyed.

planky84 (2248) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle from Oddbins, Blackheath. Honey coloured pour with a beige head. Quite a lively number. Lots of sweet spice aroma in there, splash of ginger and cinnamon with an added compliment of honey. Sweet medicinal flavours- tastes like something that could ease a cold. Not too bad.
