COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a continuation of our quest to produce distinct beers using local indigenous ingredients. Wild Sierra emulates spring in the Sierra with the snow melting out of the forests and giving way to fruity/spicy aromas of the trees with a touch of earthiness from wet soil. Mountain farmhouse style is very alive with active cultures of wild yeast continuously changing the flavor profile. We use Belgian ale yeast, Saison yeast, and wild yeast harvested off of local Pion Pine needles in the brewing process. Our wild yeast also contains Lactobacillus which lends a refreshing tartness to the beer.

22FL OZ ($4.99 bottle) this was a really cool find. Have no idea why the ratings are so low for this beer. it was great. felt like a great saison. had the power and the good flavor, tad sour but nothing over done about it. could have used more carbonation though.

J_man (954) - Tustin, California, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Starts off with a past-its-prime handmade corn tortilla aroma along with dry hay. Hazy medium yellow with a nice foamy white head. The tortilla aroma follows slightly into the taste, but it blends in with the hay and quite pronounced peppery and coriander spices to become a really nice flavor. This is definitely a Saison with the spice and barnyard components, but it has a bit more body than some versions. I didnt think I was detecting the pine needles at all, but now Im thinking that might be where some of the spice is coming from. Nice caramel and honey sweetness balances the more earthy components perfectly. Finishes very long and spicy for a Saison and definitely makes you want more. Excellent seasonal from a brewery Im not very familiar with but now want to be after trying this.

RedSox2004 (1743) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 26, 2015
Golden yellow with a thick haze, gigantic ricky bright white head and excellent lace. Aromas of barnyard funk, pine, lemony citrus, peppery spice, Belgian yeast and grainy malt. Light bready malt flavors with fruity yeast, black pepper, resin and lemon. Light body, mdeium carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a crisp dry finish.

IrishBoy (4141) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 16, 2015
Bomber from Imbibe Wine. Nose is honeycomb, floral, and a light casaba note. Clear yellow orange with a big heavy lacing off white head. Flavor is lightly sweet and fruity with a slight hint of funk that is barely discernable. Not all that wild or saison like, tastes like a light weaker Belgian dubble style to me.

Smells of corn and honey mostly, some yeast comes through. Way too sweet and has no pine or hop flavor. It kind of reminds me of El toritos sweet corn cake. there?s a good bit of carbonation but it doesn?t lend well to the taste. Not very well executed, I was looking forward to a saison with a bit of pine but ended up with a drain pour
