Wildeman Farmhouse IPA by Flying Dog Brewery
Saison / Farmhouse Ale
7.50 % ABV

Staying true to its name, Wildeman is a beast of a Farmhouse IPA and has a lot going on. Citrus and spice greet the nose, followed by sharp hop bitterness. Wildeman's a great complement to bold, rich, and spicy dishes, like Schezuan and Thai proteins. It's also great with dark chocolate, especially made with orange peel.

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer pours a full glass of foam even with a very gentle pour. It pushes above the glass holding its shape like a glacier. Soon a hazy dense yellowish-apricot body develops with a strong carbonation pushing to the surface.

S- This beer has a slightly fruity ester aroma to the yeast character and an interesting widex hint that is not really offensive. There are some green fruity notes that are probably more from hops but could be yeast, that come through lightly in the finish.

T- The peppery fusel alcohol spice leads to a dry green woody hops flavor and some dry peppery yeast phenols that linger after the dry finish. There is a nice hop pungency that lingers after the finish. Some white plastic flavors come through and turn into more of a fusel alcohol flavor as the beer opens and some apricot hop and clove phenolic come through aswell.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a tight fizz and not really much alcohol heat.

O- Nice big hot mess of flavors some interesting some a bit odd but none of them are really offensive. Perhaps a bit shocking but pretty tasty all the same.
