Two weeks ago the guys at Uinta decided to try something new, take one batch of Wyld Extra Pale and do a special, one of a kind edition. For this special edition Uinta acquired a shload of fresh Simcoe hops, enough to average 4lbs of hops per barrel of beer ( 1 beer barrel = 31 gallons). The result, we hope is one citrusy, resinous and sessionable sombitch! The "wet" in Wet n’ Wyld refers to the state of the hops. Most hops are dried to eliminate weight and spoilage, these are fresh off the vine, wet as nature made them. Wet n’ Wyld is draft only (no bottles) and will be available at the breweries pub and those pubs and bars that tend to give a shit about good local beer.

12oz can pours with a clear deep copper body that supports a nice off white head. The aroma offers up citrus hop notes, a light sense of dry malts, a sliver of lime and a faint earthy tea note. The taste is pretty crisp. I get citrus grapefruit and tangerine mixing with a lightly roasted malt note and then it seems to grow into a faint earthy black tea like hoppiness. Into the finish a mild cereal malt graininess joins and takes this into the after taste. Nice Pale. Just the right amount of depth yet plenty refreshing and sessionable.

On tap at Sam’s, Durham, sometime last fall. Golden orange pour, minimal carbonation, just a few apple juice bubbles. Sharpish nose, more lemongrass bite than the pungency of most wet hops I’ve had. Occasional sweetness in the taste, but a lot more leafy and sharply bitter notes. Decent brew, but wasn’t crazy about it.

on draft and i hope this is the right beer i drank. they called it wyld extra pale. but had kind of a belgium funky yeast on the nose along with some hop action. weird combo. poured a hazy yellow color with white head. it was a citrus hop aroma. flavor was a touch sour and citrus hop and funk. decidely different and i dont think this is a real style but hey this is my opinion only. not one i would search out.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2013 Really similar to Wyld. I’d say this was a little more herbal and less fruity; but I’m not sure I would have noticed if I wasn’t comparing them side-by-side.

11/5/13: Fruity hop aroma and flavor; citrus/orange/tropical, maybe passion fruit? Sweet, light bread malt flavor. Seems like this is more distinct from Wyld than last year’s.

On draught. Pours yellow gold with a thin white head that quickly fades. Weak aroma of citrus and floral hops. The flavor is mild malt with the same weak citrus and floral hops. On the lighter side of medium bodied. So so.

PhillyCraft (6648) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pours a very carbonated lightly hazy copper color with small to medium white head. Aromas of taste of malt grains, very restrained hops, bread, earth, crystal and caramel malts. Finishes refreshing at 4 percent. Wish there was more citrus and hop bite in this one, too bland.

Smells nice. Light yellow in color. little head. tastes soupy and light. Can tell this is like an all day drink. A working man’s beer when you have to work and drink at the same time.
