Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 27, 2013
THOUGHTS: Nice spicy Belgian. Nice break from all the pumpkin, Oktoberfest and fresh hop beers out there, but I don’t know how autumnal it is. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly cloudy, light, orangey brown with a huge, off-white, head that mostly diminished, but left good lacing. The aroma was not bad, but was weak and contained mostly rye, both sour and spicy; light to moderate dark bread and grain; light nutty malts; light earthy hops; and moderate spicy yeast. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and sour, and slightly bitter and acidic; while the finish was lightly sweet and acidic, and slightly sour with an average duration. There was spicy and sour rye, spicy yeast, other grain, dark bread, and light earthy hops. The medium body was fairly dry with fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

Pours a hazy amber with copious amounts of tan head. Nose is very fruity with notes of banana, pineapple, and coriander. The flavor is a nice balance between the fruits and the heavier malts without overly favoring one or the other. A nice beer that would please a wide variety of beer drinkers in my opinion.

Bob had this in his fridge. I almost paid big bucks for a bomber at one point so this was a nice find. Dark amber, a bit hazy. Spicy, yeasty nose, very interesting and good. Hefty full palate. Ry and spice is there, the sour balances this as I don’t detect much going on in the hops department. Very interesting and good. Dry finish.

12oz. bottle. Pleasantly complex aroma, lightly sweet and fruity with notes of golden apple, pear, melon, citrus, honey, light caramel, and a heavy dosage of spicy, peppery, doughy yeast, some hints of clove and banana here as well. Hazy light-medium orange amber color, with a foamy, lasting, large-bubbled head of white and plenty of thick lacing to boot. Flavor profile is gently sweet, fruity and spicy, with suggestions of lemon and spice from the rye, with a tropical fruit blend, estery yeast, faint caramel and touches of bready, grainy malts and faint herbal hop tones appearing late. Bitterness is fairly minimal. Highly effervescent, light and smooth on the palate, no doubt courtesy of the oats, with a medium body. Maybe just another generic Belgian-style ale from this brewer, but a well executed and tasty one.
