Pours a crystal clear and light golden yellow with a fluffy two finger head of white foam.

Strong aroma of toasted malt, biscuits, slightly yeasty, and a faint noble hop spicy note.

A bit of citrus lingers, but the toasted malt takes front stage with notes of fresh baked bread and crackers.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, crisp, creamy, prickly.

Overall, a decent beer and highly crushable.

Wild Night pours a really light, white gold. It's almost colorless enough to be straight water, until you finish pouring the full contents of the can and it becomes a bit hazier and creamier colored. There are some steady bubbles at first, building a pearl white, sea foam head, which does not retain, at all.

Perfumey flowers come off the nose initially. While not overpowering, they are oddly present in abundance. There's also aromas of a little buttered, sugared popcorn, and a faint hint of amaretto.

Taste up front is a slight tang of lemon, with light, round honey, a bit of corn, and tart grape.

Crisp, semi-dry, and tart enough to almost come across as a Gose. While an unusual take on the style, I like it better than a few other examples I've had recently.

Very floral nose and sweet nose. Very sweet mellow honey taste on the front end. Fantastic cream ale, one of the best cream ales I've had!
