First had: on tap at Barcade, Philly, PA

Served in a 10oz. goblet, a cloudy, pale straw-yellow color, with a large puff of fluffy white head that retained well, and left a bit of lacing on the glass. I didn't get too much from the aroma, it was light with notes of lemon zest and grassy funk. Taste was light and mildly sour, lemon and apple are the flavors that stood out most, with a bit of grassy funk happening. Light, crisp mouthfeel, prickly. Hitting somewhere between a saison and a wild ale, which, from the name, is probably what they were shooting for. Not great, and not overly flavorful, but still pretty good and definitely easily drinkable. A decent beer overall.

LOOK: Pours clear straw with white head. Decent clarity, looks like a standard beer.

SME:LL: The nose is pretty big on pungent, noble hops. Slight citrus, bread and straw.

TASTE: A coarse graininess and light sour lemon notes prevail in the flavor. Fairly bitter and sufficiently dry. Leans more on malty sugars than true sourness, other tasters have described this American Wild ale as tame, and that it is. If it was advertised more as a Saison, as it is on this site, it would do better in delivering to style. Light bodied with a low medium carbonation.

Overall, this is a decent beer, and the best I have had from Free Will.
