Stop #328 on my world brewery tour.

Visited around 6:00 on a Tuesday. At the time, they closed at 7 and only served food at lunch. A handful of people at the small bar and once I had my beers, made my way to a comfy couch in the back below a window to the impressive brewery setting. Man, I love stainless steel.

I went with what appeared to be an unfiltered Kolsch, an IPA, and a porter. All the beers were excellent although it's challenging to make a balanced IPA at 4% alcohol.

Would be nice if they had more/better views into the brewing area.

My bill for 3 ~16 beers was $6.

Go to the nearby Red Iguana for killer Mexican food (Mole Poblano or any of their Mole's) (679 characters)

I was in town for one day and the brewery was closed for remodeling. my low rating is out of spite. Wish I could have enjoyed the place, but c'mon, no temporary drinking room (174 characters)

Although the pub was being renovated, I had a great experience with their selection, food, tour, and apparel. (109 characters)

My only pre-planned stop in SLC when visiting over the summer. I have always been a loyal buyer of Uinta beers. I think when fresh they are among the most consistent and tasty beers for an overall lineup of flagships that there is. I have to admit I also love the artwork on their products. Located in an industrial part of town similar to about 90% of the other breweries I have visited with plenty of parking. The tasting room was spacious with a medium sized bar and tables surrounding that. Merch room and bottles to go also located in the tasting room; a good selection of both. We ended up getting two flights and the beer was priced well and super fresh as it should be at the brewery. Having Wyld that fresh was an eye opening experience. Half of the beers I had before this visit and they were even better from the source. I think we tried 8 samples between the two flights and were very happy with the quality. Food was solid. It was a simple create your own sandwich checklist style menu but very tasty and affordable. I would consider this my favorite stop in SLC and a must visit for any craft fan in the area. After sampling the brews of Utah I now realize why Uinta has such a bigger reach than the rest; just good to great all around. (1,250 characters)

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a hazy golden-yellow color with a nice one finger head of white foam. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a rings of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is biggest of a wheat and lemon smell along with a little bit of a grainy smell. There is a hint of a grassy and hay smell as well giving it a slightly funked summer wheat smell overall.

Taste – The taste begins with a wheaty and slightly bready taste with a hint of fruity sweetness of a tangerine nature. Right from the start there is a bit of lemon and some grapefruit hop flavor which are later joined by some more grassy and hay like hop flavors. As the taste advances the sweeter tangerine fades, drying out the taste of the brew, with some grainy and more grassy hop flavors coming to the tongue. With a little bit of hay and yeast that come at the end of the taste, one is left with a rather crisp and wheaty, slightly funked, and more intense then would be expected for a 4.0 % abv brew., flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average for a normal strength brew, but for a 4 % abv it is rather thick, with a carbonation level that is rather average overall. The thicker body and moderate carbonation really accentuate the mix of wheat and funk rather well bringing these flavors to the forfront and really allowing them to be picked up.

Overall – A rather good summer style wheat/saison at only 4 % abv. For the light alcohol level this is a fantastically flavorful brew and makes for one fantastic session . Rather nice overall!! (1,675 characters)
