3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a tall, sticky white head. The aroma picked up very sweet banana and cloves paired with other white spices and a kiss of warmth.. not overly complex, but enjoyable. The flavor found honey, light fruits, and a pinch of molasses at the core, with white pepper, cloves, and coriander laced throughout.. filling carbonation, peppery spicage, and a sharp, metallic hit on the long, warm finish. Medium-bodied on the palate, but it felt thicker at times due to heavy carbonation.. lots of residual spicage on the finish.. OK overall.

On draft poured an orangish amber color with aromas of light banana, spice, yeast and some light wheat. Flavors are the samme, the light spiciness complemented the light wheat and banana flavors, solid beer.

Pours light amber with tons of fluffy white head. Aroma has a nice fruitiness to it with some spices. It is almost like spiced cider with a little pineapple in it. Flavor is also full of spices but not just those typical of classic Belgians. I get some cinnamon and nutmeg type flavors with and underlying tangy-sweet citrus apple type taste. Unique and delicious.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a decent cheddar orange with a nice, thick head of off-white. Aroma is molasses bread, raisin, dark cherry, and sugary autumn leaves. Flavor is pureed prunes and raisins in a sweet bread treat, with a light syrup of dried maple leaves. Thick mouthfeel. Great beer. Nice and cohesive but not too boozy.

12oz bottle from TheBeerSommlier in a trade poured into a Schlafly Tulip. Thanks Matt! Pours a hazy golden orange with a LOT of head. Aroma of spices, yeast and a little wheat. Taste is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Lots of spices and yeast with a little wheat. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and a suprisingly long bitter finish. Overall, I’m diggin it. I would gladly drink it again.

The head on this beer, and it may be a bad batch, is nonstop and voracious. The taste is flat with a bite and then its gone. I wanted more from this beer and will ammend my rating should I try a different batch and find out that it was just a bad 4 pack.

Bottle from Hop City, Atlanta. Pretty nice local Belgian-style brew. Slightly hazy pour, deep golden in color, with a big foamy head. Straw and yeast in the nose, with a dose of dry hops and some pepper. Off to a good start. Slight phenols to taste, maybe that’s just brough out a bit by the mildly slick mouthfeel. But it’s only a modest deterrent and the brew is quite solid overall, with some hops and spice taking charge as the beer lingers.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2015 Haven’t tried much Wild Heaven, but I like what I have tried. A dark honey color with a long lasting head. Has a nice funky and spicy aroma. Definitely a yeasty presence, but also some banana in there. The taste was surprising. There was more of a spicy hop prescence than I am used to with Belgians. Grainy and full taste that dances between funky yeast, crisp fruit, and just a hint of tart. Smack of alcohol warmth at the end. Wow, nice beer that is more than the sum of its parts. Keep brewing, GA.

Bottle from Mezcalitos, Decatur, GA. Big herby/floral aroma and flavor. Tastes like the flower, Bidens. Smooth and balanced otherwise.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from Keir- thanks again, Keir! Pours a clear copper with some sizeable yeast sediment chunks and an inch of rocky, frothy off-white head that laces the glass. Aroma of bready and caramel malts, rye-like spice, candi sugar, and mixed fruits. Flavor of caramel malts, sweet dough, mild spice, bitter earthy notes, and booze. Medium-bodied with a bitter, chewy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Packs some punch.
