A Note on This Beer
“With Transient, the nature of what we’re doing is that we never look to make the same beer again. Even if it has the same name, we’re tweaking something, trying to adjust, make it better.”
— Chris Betts, Founder, Transient Artisan Ales
I don’t know about you, but I love that brewing philosophy. It means every time I get a beer from Transient, it’s new and exciting, and better than the last. Even if it’s the same beer!
If you’ve never heard of this crew, it’s because their beers show up in Michigan, Illinois, and pretty much nowhere else. But that didn’t stop Craft Beer and Brewing from naming them a Breakout Brewer, saying “The beers themselves are works of art.”
And unlike other works of art — the Mona Lisa, Michelangelo’s David — their brews, like today’s Wayward Pale Ale, are absolutely delicious!
This rustic, Brett-fermented Ale starts out with mild bretty funk and a yeasty tang that invigorates the palate. Then, subtle fruity notes from a generous double dry-hopping with Mosaic and Amarillo Hops slide into the background. The flavors mingle on the tastebuds before giving way to a bone dry finish.
If you’re a fan of Bretty funk, fruity hops, and crushable drinkability, you’ve gotta try a bottle of Wayward. Just don’t wait too long to score one, because our little stash won’t last long.
