33 cl bottle @ home. BBE 05.07.2017.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head and some yeast sediment floating around. Yeasty spiciness on the nose, citric and lemony, some grassy and herbal notes too. Flavor starts citric crisp but is rounded quickly with the yeast, some subtle toffee notes, mild funkiness at the end. Okay but needs some edge to it.

Wild Beer Wildebeest
11%ABV. Imperial stout. Poured out black. 40SRM. Nose had green banana and banana flower aromas. There’s a local banana that is like a finger banana, tiny, fat and full of flavor. This smellls exactly Iike it. Mouthfeel is milky and light syrup balanced with some nice carbonation. Alcoholic palate for sure. Palate has roasted barley, vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee and some liniment. There is a bit of a ripe banana starchy sweetness to the body. There’s a bit of a plant-like bitterness, maybe even slight tannins that further reinforce the impression that you’re having a just-ripe banana. There some predictable ume, burnt twig and carbon flavors. Finish is creamy, sticky, bitter with a charcoal, charred wood character. Overall, a very hefty trip with a ponderous mouthfeel, boozy body, palate with heavy, creamy, malty, starchy, sweet flavors. Again, heavy but in all the very best ways!! Goes on Favorites List!

330ml bottle. Pour dark brown and reddish, minimal white foam. Aroma of sweet roasted malt with vanilla and notes of coffee. Taste is more interesting than the aroma, sweet for sure but not annoying, nice balance of malt and vanilla, dessert like. High body and medium carbonation for the style. Oily and slick. Long sweet vanilla finish.

330ml bottled 2016-11-03 best before 2019-11-03. Pour lightly hazy yellow orange with a minimal white foam. Aroma is from the Lambic style, brett and cheese. Taste is very disappointing, that’s not what the aroma told me. The aluminium and metallic taste is prominent compare to the brett and funky swell it announced. Dry and round at the same time. Medium body and carbonation. Metallic and rusty finish.

Wild Beer Billionaire
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours jet black, head is a fingers’ width, light tan, and fairly dense. Thick lacing. Head retains quite a while. Small amount of visible carb around the sides. Aroma is quite sweet and cakey, with quite a lot of salted caramel and chocolate, maybe nutella, and some dried dark fruits lurking in the background. Some saltier notes underneath, soy sauce, slight smoked meat characteristic. Rounding things out there’s a touch of vanilla and oak too. Taste is sweet and quite fruity, with more fruitcake-esque notes coming through along with sour apple, some vinous stuff, cognac, brown sugar and dark, chocolate/caramel malt. Dry, salty, slightly bitter finish. Alcohol is noticeable but not unpleasantly so. Medium body, thick and smooth texture, no real carb, surprisingly easy drinking!

Bottle at home picked up from beer gonzo. An oily jet black coloured pour with a lasting thin light tan head. Aroma is fruit cake, chocolate fudge, solvent, jammy fruits, and harsh hot alcohol. Flavour is composed of Salted caramel, miso, tangy dried fruit, cakey malts,, Warming alcohol, apple,. Palate is medium sweet, full and sticky bodied, moderate carbonation. Big woody chocolate cake finish. A little bit of a kitchen sink beer.

Flaska från SB. Svart med fingerhögt, gräddigt beiget skum som lämnar lite gardiner längs sidorna. Lätta, rostade och nästan brända toner med toffee, saltlakrits, saltad fudge, choklad, laktos. Mellanstor, len och rund kropp. Söt i smaken med riktigt krämig, tjock fudge och toffee. Lite halvssalt som smiter igenom och balanserar upp sötman en aning. Fina choklad- och kaffetoner. Eftersmaken går över i lite mer rostade toner av kaffe. Riktigt trevlig, gott om en är sugen på något sött.

Wild Beer Gazillionaire
Gazillionaire Copper color with a fruity cardamom, ginger and floral aroma. The beer has a medium body while the taste is kind of weird with ginger, fruit, vanilla syrup and citrus/floral hops. Alright but as mentioned a bit of an odd duck which should be listed as a spice beer not amber ale...

Beautiful color on this brew but that’s where the accolades start and stop. When I ordered a salted caramel chocolate milk stout, I was hopeful but mostly sceptical that a beer could successfully pull off such myriad tastes. Alas, the sceptic in me won coz this stout does not live up to my hype. I could not detect any salted caramel and felt that the overall feel was not as rich n deep as a plain old milk stout. Maybe too many adjuncts spoil the boil.

Wild Beer Bibble
Naranja claro con media cabeza de espuma de larga retención, aromas a pino, cítricos, fruta tropical, flores y miel; en boca entrada media, ligera maltosidad y bajo amargor, cuerpo medio y correcta carbonatación, se bebe fácilmente, con balance hacia la malta, notas a cereal y cítricos, falla ligeramente en estilo por su bajo índice de amargor.

Wild Beer Breakfast of Champignons
Keg at the Beer Shop, Hitchin. Amber/orange, clear, no obvious head save for a tiny white ringlet. Herbal funk, yeasty, vegetal and basement odours. Decent without being over the top. The taste is tart and refreshing, and I get much more of the mushroom in the back of the tongue. Short tart finish, with a bit of fungal aftertaste. Verdict (or should I say the morel of the story): a neat idea, and one that works in theory as well as practice. Not particularly memorable but enjoyable.

Keg at The Pint Shop, Oxford. Clouded orange gold with white head. There is a slight acidic side to this from the start, there is a pleasant sharp lime like character with a slight woody note. Easy on the palate, really quite pleasant for the style with a rounded maltiness in the close.

Wild Beer Redwood 2016 (5.8%)
Bottle. Almost clear brown, less than a coat of beige head. 3 Aroma of sweet and tart berries, some bread crust, bracken. 7+ Medium bodied, low carbonation. Acidic and sour with berries, lemon, cherry vinegar. Bread crust and some light toffee struggle to support. Spicy oak (Hungarian?) at the end. Lots going on with berries. Pushes it with the acidity but not too far. Good.

Wild Beer Evolver IPA
Keg at The Canalhouse, Nottingham. Blonde with a medicinal, grassy aroma. Perhaps served too cold - difficult to grasp the range of flavours here - but I’m getting dry bitter hops, some corn, some cereal, very mild malt. Not fruity at all.

Wild Beer Wild Goose Chase
Powiem szczerze, że trudo mi ocenić to piwo. Pomieszanie z poplątaniem. Troszkę kwaśne, ale nie na tyle, by zadowolić kwasofila. Chmielowe, ale raczej jak podrzedna koncernowa APA. Odrobinę słonę, ale nijak mające się do rasowych gose. Ogólnie całkiem spoko, odświeżające piwko o lekko słonawym finiszu.
