Somerset's Wild Beer Co. has made a name for themselves brewing the quirky and the bizarre. Their Epic Saison isn't either--and it doesn't need to be. Brewed with North American Sorachi Ace hops expect nice aromas of tropical fruit, tangerines and lemon. The taste is tart and fruity with a good bit of zesty citrus fruits, spice and a grainy malt character. The light body is lifted by a good carbonation and a dry finish. We think this Epic Saison is pretty...epic. (You had to have seen that coming.)

Brewery Info

There is no other brewery in the world making beers like the Wild Beer Company. In fact, there are very few breweries that even look like Wild Beer Company. Most are a study in stainless steel, but walking into Wild Beer’s home on a remote Somerset farm, it’s wood that dominates the scene. Dozens of barrels are stacked floor to ceiling, each with its contents scribbled on the side: Modus, Ninkasi, Sourdough (yes, a beer using sourdough yeast). Not all the beers Wild Beer make will touch the inside of a barrel, but what is clear is that they all live up to their tagline: Drink WILDLY Different.

Take Millionaire for example, a chocolate and salted caramel milk stout that is every bit as decadent as it sounds. Or how about Wild Goose Chase? A tart, sprightly beer fermented using locally-harvested wild yeast and gooseberries? Or perhaps one of our favourite beers (ever?), Sleeping Lemons, a gose (a low-ish alcohol, slightly salty German beer) brewed with lemons preserved in salt – can there be anything more refreshing? Wild Beer is indeed wildly different. And while it can be tempting to take the innovation too far, head brewer Brett Ellis remains true to the aim of making all their beers very drinkable. That’s true whether it’s Zintuki, a quirky sour ale blended from Somerset Wild, their beer fermented using yeast cultivated from a nearby orchard, along with an ale fermented with champagne yeast and some local apple juice, or the more conventional ‘Fresh’ pale ale. Wild Beer pack more flavour in to their beers than many breweries can dream of.

As Brett writes: “We love sour beers, their unrivalled complexity and nuances make them both the most exciting and engaging styles of beer to brew and to drink. The romance and the art of brewing come through in a very different way when using the extraordinary uncontrollable wild yeasts and bacteria.

“There's wild yeast and bacteria everywhere, especially here in Somerset with so many orchards nearby. When you make a happy home for them in your brewery they just show up and spontaneously ferment – and sour – a beer.”

More of a cloudy pale than farmhouse-fresh-funk!

Fine, drinkable, and then some but not the saison I was looking for - more of a cloudy pale than farmhouse-fresh-funk! This doesn't hold a candle to most Belgian saisons, or indeed the rest of Wild Beer's excellent line-up...
Not the best saison

Not true best salson. Quite minerally and not hoppy enough

Yellow-orange colour, hazy, apple, yeasty, banana, grapefruit, earthy and slightly spicy aroma, thin to medium crisp, chalky mouthfeel, bitter lemon, apple, earthy, woody flavour, dry, slightly bitter, medicinal, slight apple aftertaste.

Not Wild Beer Co's best beer but it's "ok" and at £2.59 it's a little steep for it's average taste.
Either way, not an awful beer but slap bang average.
