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

onceblind (9187) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2017
Hazy dark copper-amber under a bubbly light ivory head. Light apricot-ish nose with gentle maple sweetness. Crisp dry body with a bright maple and gentle twangy apricot flavor thats gently fruity and just mellow-ish sour.

oh6gdx (26447) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2016
Bottled (Spontaneous KSMT tasting). Ambery brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is spicy, malty, mildly funky with some berries and dried fruits along with a slight sourness to it. Flavour is very similar, but somehow manages to work out quite well for my taste. Close on being a bit over the top though.

drpimento (3530) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Meh, Aroma was definitely the best part here, with spice fruit perfume malt yeast and a little balsamic vinegar. Appearances average with a very short-lived head and a slightly hazy dark Amber. Flavor is fairly two-dimensional malty vinegar. Pucker up.

Pours a nice cola colored brown. Aromas of malts, fruit, and a touch of spice. Has flavors of chocolate, caramel, and a touch of wood.

BrettTaylor (768) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Pours almost like soda - fizzy with rapidly disappearing head and a cola-like color. Aroma - also somewhat cola like, but some yeasty spiciness underneath. Taste is almost coffee like, with lots of earthy notes, some spices. I dont get much if any of the apricot. I will be honest and say I was hoping for more.

Cnesta (40) - grand prairie, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2016
12oz bottle. Pours amber. There is a lot of haze. There was sediment in the bottle that stirred up. Creamy head that persists. Yeast material or even spices sitting on top of the head. There is a metallic flavor that is masking all others. I pick up sweet fruity even grapefruit behind the metallic flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

visionthing (5243) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 10, 2016
On tap at Tilt, Oslo. Slightly hazy deep amber with an off-white head. Fruity and slightly funky aroma with apricots, spices and some yeasty notes. Moderate sweet with nice acidity, mild funky and fruity flavours. High drinkability and quite refreshing.

UXO (1888) - CANADA - JAN 26, 2016
Appearance: clear deep amber with a short, short-lived off-white head, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: tart dark stone fruit, spices (cloves?), herbal, sweet grainy malt, leather, light funk. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, light bitter. (7/10) Palate: light body, moderate carbonation, dry tart finish. (3/5) Pretty approachable for a wild - lightly tart and mildly funky. Not wildly different than a Flanders red, but milder. Mildly pleasant but not very exciting. (13/20)
