Funky E Star

Green’s, Ponce de Leon, Atlanta, GA, USA.
750 mL, plastic (don’t like that) corked, caged and foiled. VERY difficult to get the cork out – annoying. Getting the cork out produces a weak pop – disappointing.
Disappointingly dark pour, with an amber hue. Head is also weak and leaves watery lace. No retention.
Nose yields a little funk but a confusing, and unexpected sweet caramel note. The sweetness increases dramatically over time and the tiny funk recedes as the beer warms.
The tastes are also caramel influenced with some sweet yeasts. I don’t get this beer; it says “Belgian Wild” on the label and is categorized here as a Pale, it’s all very confusing. It has some biscuit malts and caramel that reminds me of an English beer, a tiny bit of funk and some Belgian yeast character. What the hell they were trying to pull together here I have no idea.
Anyway….?
