The wild has an aftertaste that is just a little unpleasant.

This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange to almost ruddy brown color with a slim finger's worth of white foamy head that quickly dissipated. There was some light lacing running here and there and sliding into the beer.
The smell started off with some sweet citrus and bitter lemon rind. Light sweet breadiness (I'm guessing from the yeast) blends with some coriander and Belgian spices.
The taste was moderately sweet with an ample amount of Belgian spice to balance. There's a semi-sweet aftertaste running into the same sort of finish.
The mouthfeel was about a light to medium in body with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing the spice to hit my tongue in a good harsh way.
Overall, finally finishing my last bottle of this which is why it has taken me this long to complete this review, yes, I do like this one a lot and look forward to getting more next Summer.
