Beer for urbanites: as tempestuous as it is untamable, made from wild Brett yeast. Leads its turbulent life inside this bottle. Gets even wilder as time goes by.

KnutAlbert (6792) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2017
Bottle in Antwerp. Blond with a nice wild edge of Brett. Not in any way extreme, but it has that little funky sourness that lifts it above the crowd.

Bottle at café Boekowski in Antwerpen. Light yellow color, nice beer, somewhere in between a pils and a real blond. A nice bitternes inthe taste.

Skinnyviking (9720) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2017
Bottle at DØE Copenhagen. High fluffy lasting white head. Hazy dark yellow body. Mild straw fruity aroma. Sour acidic fruity and yet pretty mild brett flavor. Low carbonation, short finish, little hops bitterness.

Bitter, zuur, waterig, veel hop. Gaat meer de kant op van pils en niet van blond. Matig, zou het niet weer kopen, maar moet er nog 6 wegwerken.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2017 Bière blonde dorée avec légère mousse blanche. Une odeur très aigre, pas du tout agréable. Au gout c'est la même, soit la bière n'est plus bonne soit j'accroche pas du tout.

Neigt naar Orval, maar dan waterachtiger. Een van de betere commerciële bieren. floraal, kruidig, pompelmoes. Verre van slecht.

JaKeAFC (1284) - ITALY - AUG 29, 2017
Bottle at de koninck, antwerp, Orval style. Hazy golden color with a big bubbly white head. Funky smell. Aroma is brett, lactose, dry hopping and Citrus, incense, sandalwood labender and perfume, brass, old furniture. Strong carbonation. Light to medium body, spiced dry finish. Taste quite bitter and yeasty. Very soapy, out of the ordinary, for brett lovers, other wise really weird.

Okay, I must say this one should be ranking higher, IMHO. I don’t know whether I’d be able to tell it from Orval in a blind tasting: it’s pretty damn well done following that mighty difficult path (ask Mikkeller.) So, yes, it’s not the original nor exactly as good, but it’s right there. So, if you like Orval, quite surely you’ll like this one-eyed pigeon. Right, the tasting: pours intense yellow (but not golden) with greenish highlights (yes, this is not like Orval, I know.) Aroma is in the high grades: lambic, Orval, yeast, cider, grass, pear. Also lemon, sweet apple... This is more like it, isn’t it? Taste is dry, medium body, fizzy, great acidity. Just a tinge of bitterness at the end. A decent industrial Orval mimic.

This Wild Jo doesn’t make me (so) wild... Rather mediocre and middle of the road beer. Don’t find the promised Brett yeast back in this beer.
