Poured from the bottle a deep, clear gold color with two fingers of rich white head.

Aroma of yeast, pear and mango.

The taste was ripe pear, mango, yeast, and fruit cocktail syrup.

Medium bodied and syrupy with a moderate carbonation.

Not bad, but a bit on the sweet and syrupy side.

Wild at Heart pours a golden color with a huge frothy lacing head. There is a strong complex aroma, tart fruits such as pineapple and mango are present, with a yeasty note. Strong fresh pineapple flavors, big yeast flavor, nice Belgian candies that are not overpowering, with a warm alcohol finish. Nice flavors, good feel, need to sip. Overall its a nice complex beer, with big fruit flavors, and nice warmth.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance - Pours a light gold with a clean head and no disproportion in the bubbles.

Smell - Smells of hay and malt with light citrus under tones. There are some notes of barnyard in the back typical with brett, but not overwhelming.

Taste - Light and malty with the right amount of funk in the rear palate from the brett. It has a clean and crisp finish of malt that tapers off into the more nuanced notes of the brett. Brett tends to be a fairly overwhelming yeast, but it works here.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with light bubbles. Would be excellent as a palate cleanser.

Overall - A good beer but not as impressive as I was expecting. The beer itself would pair great with cheese due to the funk that comes from brett.
