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.

SHIG (3541) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle: Poured a coppery to dark reddish orange with a huge tan lacing head. Aroma is strong fruit mainly apricots, spice, and souring notes. Upfront spiciness with fruit hints that balance. Dry peppery finish. Didn’t get the tartness that I thought I would have.

Bottle from Stirchley wines via SarkyNorthener; cloudy amber pour with a thin beige head, peppery aroma, taste is spicey with a hint of peach action, not overwhelmed by this.

NeoHippie2 (907) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Aromas of roasted apricots, clove, and cinnamon. Flavor is malt upfront with the roasted apricots coming through soon after. Finishes with clove and cinnamon notes. Not a whole lot of funk going on here but I still enjoyed the flavors this beer had.

tmoreau (2287) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle, poured to snifters, showing an orangey copper color, with a modest layer of soft white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was present, but negligible funk, floral, some dried fruit, and an array of spices as coriander, clove, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice. The taste was fruit & light tartness, but was less expressive than the aroma, and almost washed out and thin. Somewhat disappointed with the outcome.

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle from Big C Winter Park. Pours out a darker amber color with a small to non existent white head. Aroma is of sweet dried apricots, light spice. Taste is of fruit cake, lots of dried fruit, caramel, some odd spices, pepper, dry yeast. Eh....

traPISSED (101) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 30, 2014
Firstly I want to say that I think it’s fantastic that a British producer is experimenting with wild yeast! This example was interesting to try. Dark muddy appearance with full carbonation and a fluffy white head. Not too much apricot going on though and the added spices took away from the wild yeast a little bit. However it is a great wild British beer at a good price (in the UK).

nearbeer (3586) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2014
33 cl. bottle, bb 25/10/15. Pours a hazy orange-copper with a lasting disc of creamy foam on top. Nose is funky grape must and toffee with touches of wood, ash and tart apple. Front flavor is earthy spice and tart caramel apple. Fades into some toast, citrus zest and walnut in the middle. Finish is dry with notes of wood, white pepper and galangal. Medium body has medium-high carbonation and a slight astringency.
