Reformation Brewery Wilder Review

Visually, this beer is a stunner — it pours deep red grape with a fluffy pink head, exciting the eyes while priming the palate. "Wild amounts" of blackberry, cranberry, blackcurrant, and ginger are called out on the can's label. On first sip, the latter spice stands out, reminiscent of ginger beer, only with tart berry notes poking out here and there. One taster likened the overall impression to pulled pork marinade, or an artisanal barbecue sauce. (Worth a try, if you have extra pork in your freezer.) After the beer sits for a few minutes, the dark berry notes start to sneak out from behind the sourness and ginger, finally concluding with a creamy, bitter finish.
