Picked up a bottle on a whim from Capones in Norristown, Pa this past week. Poured from a 22oz bottle into my Allagash tall chalice/shifter glass. Pours a fairly clear orange/bronze like color. Only a slight bit of cloudiness...mostly clear. A decent 2 finger size head arises...with a creamy surface and nice retention. As it dissipates, a mild cap and ring of foam remains.
Around is unique. Belgian yeast, followed by some mild crisp fruit...like pear and apple. A very faint hoppiness in the background.
Flavor is surprisingly good! I have to admit, I wasn't expecting a heck of a lot. A very nice mixture of fruit, hops, and very slight funk. The term "Wild" on the label doesn't mean this beer is a "wild" ale or "sour". Even though theres a slight funk...similar to a saison, its mostly sweet...and very drinkable! Medium, crisp mouthfeel...high carbonation, and slightly boozy. O, and not to forget the decent amount of hops! The fruit character once again is bringing to mind apple and pear. Overall a very decent and drinkable beer!
