We love nothing better than Belgian-style saison but with this blissful version weíve 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.

Draft. Dark ruby pour. Ginger is a little overwhelming in aroma and taste. Some funk is present but on the whole the spices need to be dialed back here.

Bottle. Light brown body with large offwhite head. Aroma is sour with hints of marzipan and some peaches. Taste is slightly sour with white chocolate. Aftertaste is slightly sour and slightly bitter with some sweetness. Nice one

A pleasing looking cloudy rusty coloured brew with a decent and long lasting head of foam. It smells sour of the fruity kind. I canít put my finger on which fruit is involved. Apricots. I guess I should have read what was on the label. Roasted apricots? They do taste on the slightly burnt side but it doesnít interfere much with the tasty sourness. Mediumy body and carbonation. Iím getting some light notes of Brett now but overall, this is not a brew that I fancy very much and isnít worth the money I paid for it. Kind of Meh, to be honest.

3/16/15. From bottle. Murky brown orange with a thin head. Spicy, fruity aroma. Tart up front, then spices and sweet fruit leading to a dry finish. interesting.

chimpgibbon (393) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
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.

Ferris (6759) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
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.
