Poured a brilliant, medium-deep gold color with a barely perceptible haze. Off-white, creamy, 1-inch head forms, settles slowly, but persists at 1/4 inch. Beautiful, well-developed Belgian lace after each sip. The nose intermingles yeasty notes with distinct hops, tropical fruit, citrus, wood, and cloves. Light and delicious on the palate with excellent balance that hides the 8.8% ABV, but don't be fooled. The ABV is there! Lingers well but leaves a clean palate with hints of hop flavors, hop-bitterness, citrus, and cloves. Moderate carbonation with tiny bubbles. Expected more sourness given the "wild" descriptor, however, it is delicious! The moreishness increases as it rises to/above cellar temperature. Would be excellent with rich or fatty foods needing to be balanced with the increasingly evident hop.
