18-C. Wild Beer

Wild Beers are any range of color. These beers may be clear or hazy due to yeast, chill haze or hop haze. Aromas may vary tremendously due to fermentation characters contributed by various known and unknown microorganisms. Hop aroma and flavor are very low to high. Hop bitterness is perceived at varying levels depending on the overall balance, but usually perceived as very low to low. Usually because of a high degree of attenuation in these beers, malt sweetness is very low to low. In case of darker beers, aroma and flavor of roasted malts should be balanced with other characters. Wild beers are "spontaneously" fermented with microorganisms that the brewer has introduced from the ambient air/environment in the vicinity of the brewery in which the beer is brewed. Wild beers may not be fermented with any cultured strains of yeast or bacteria. Wild beer may or may not be perceived as acidic. It may include a wildly variable spectrum of flavors and aromas derived from the wild microorganisms with which it was fermented. The overall balance of flavors, aromas, appearance and body is an important factor in assessing these beers. Body is very low to medium. Spontaneously fermented beers with fruit, spice or other ingredients would be appropriately entered as Wild Beer. For purposes of competition, entries which could be appropriately entered in an existing classic or traditional style such as Belgian-Style Lambic, Gueuze, Fruit Lambic, etc. should be entered in that style and not entered as a Wild Beer.
To allow for accurate judging the brewer must provide additional information about the entry including the classic ale, lager or experimental base style of beer allowed to spontaneously ferment, information about the process used, and/or other ingredient(s) such as fruit, spices, etc. if any. Beer entries not accompanied by this information will be at a disadvantage during judging.
