Beer Review: Victory Wild Devil

The Victory Wild Devil is a type of hybrid beer, a mix of American IPA and Belgian  Ale.  The Wild Devil is an American IPA, but uses a Brettanomyces yeast which is a “wild” yeast used in brewing lambic.

This beer is highly carbonated, be careful on the pour, the head can easly get carried away.


Thick off white head sitting on a crimson beer.  Great head retention, an inch of head stuck around for several minutes with a bit of lacing.


The aroma is a bit confusing, but strikingly pleasant.  It has a piney cotton candy aroma mixed with a subtle brown sugar, mild yeast notes.


It has a dark ale taste, bit of toffee and chocolate which quickly give way to citrus and more caramel sweetness that is rounded out by some well balanced bitterness.


This is a unique beer, not really a American IPA, but has many of the qualities.  I found it very easy to drink, great aroma and flavor made it difficult to drink this in moderation.  I kept refilling my glass from the 750 ml bottle as soon as I got half way down.

Food Pairing:

This would would go well with heavily seasoned light meat, like Pork Loin.

Dietary Info:

A sweet 6.7 % abv beer, so I would round up to 7% giving this beer about 225 cal.  Since there is no info on the Victory website, I estimated from my Calorie Calculator Chart.

Glassware: Tulip Glass

Tasting Method: 750ml Bottle

Simply Beer Rating: 94
