Evolver IPA, The Wild Beer Company, Lower Westcombe Farm, Evercreech, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, UK

Facinating ale brewed with wild and naturally occurring yeast that provide the ultimate in flavor adventures. As we have noted in various profiles here at BrewBloggers dot net, this ale matures into a very different flavor if you allow it the time. The bottle-chapter is an excellent source of information and encourages you to either drink it now, or later. Like my not-so-worldly travels, I usually don’t go beyond domestic brew because there is so much to enjoy right here. But in this case, I will continue to make an exception and enjoy other choices from the UK. The Wild Beer Company was not one that I had previously heard of and I will continue to look for additional flavors on The Atlantic City Bottle Company shelves. A flavorful choice, cheers!

    Is it fermented with a pitch of Brett or is the fermenter left open for “wild” brettanomyces and other microbes to spontaneously ferment the beer. Brett beers are usually fermented with a pure culture of Brett. It is very interesting how they evolve over time.

      I must have missed this one AbdillHomeBrew, sorry about that. I do not believe its left open, I believe its pitched with wildly grown and collected ingrediants. When I know for sure, Ill reply again.

    Enjoying one of these 11.2 oz ers now. Very very good. Pricey but justified. Yum

    An elegantly distinct difference a full three months later, I will get more and age for seven months next time.

    AbdillHomeBrew, it simply says that its 100% fermented with brettanomyces, a naturally occurring wild yeast. I therefore assume it was pitched and not left open. I wonder what other flavors might be captured if it were left open, as opposed to being pitched?
