This recipe was designed to broadly fit within the 2021 BJCP Style guide 25B: Saison.

Wild One was created for The League of Brewers by Jamie McQuillan of Cell Division Brewery to showcase a cool new wild yeast called Wilding. Isolated by Froth Technologies and hailing from the Rangitīkei District, Wilding throws fruity notes of banana, pear and apple esters, with spicy phenolic notes and a crisp, bone dry finish.

Saisons/farmhouse ales are hugely variable as a style and this one is designed specifically with the brewing properties of the Wilding yeast in mind. It is built on a base of pilsner malt with some Vienna added for a touch of biscuity character, along with some spicy rye malt for an improved mouth feel/length of finish. Motueka and East Kent Goldings hops bring fruity citrus and earthy and spicy, herbal and floral notes, with just a touch of honey.

Wild One could be considered the big sister to Jamie’s previous saison recipe, Haymaker Saison. It is equally pale, bright and refreshing but with a little more malt character and an extra flavour punch at ~6.5 % abv helped along by some lovely fermentation character from the Wilding yeast. To find out more about brewing saisons, you might like to read Jamie’s article, For the Love of Saisons, which you can find on The League’s blog. Cheers.
