You "can" get wiser with experience. But you have to actually reflect on the experience to gain wisdom. Many people will go through life without reflecting on their experience and become an old fool. Wisdom is something that has to be fought for. Older people simply have more experience to learn from so they are usually wiser but there are wise young people and foolish old people in the world.1

I believe EXPERIENCES make you wiser. It just so happens that as you age, you have more experiences, and often times have more wisdom than a younger person. Having said that, a young person who has gone through many experiences of their own can be equally as wise.3
