Wyld Extra Pale Ale


Uinta Brewing from Salt Lake City started having their beers distributed to South Florida recently. I grabbed a few to check out, starting with their Wyld Extra Pale Ale. This beer is certified organic by the Utah Department of Agriculture as 98.6% of its ingredients are organic. The label has a tiny sketch of a tent on the front and repeats the brewery tagline "Earth, Wind and Beer." Best before 05/31/14.

Sweet grain and orange citrus aroma. Fruity sweet orange flavors in the beginning are met with a mild hoppy, piney bitter balance. A little bland and thin, but certainly an easy refreshing drinker on this 90° February afternoon. Nice lingering fruity aftertaste. Not a whole lot going on, definitely not "Wyld," but I enjoyed the beer and would certainly drink it again.

I see this beer at my local all the time, but I've never felt compelled to pick it up.

They are a new brewery distributed here and sent 4 or 5 beers so far. I've had a couple others I think better represent their styles. Stay tuned.

I love this beer. When I reviewed it, I said "...the stuff dreams are made of."

Uinta's stuff is hit or miss for me. If you haven't tried it, the Hop Notch is terrific.

Hop Notch in the fridge. Hopefully it's "butterfly kisses in a bottle"!
