2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 I think Blazer06 brought this one. Not sure. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, pears, apples, and some honey with Belgian yeast. Flavor is similar. Light-bodied and pretty straight-forward.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark golden color. Aroma is dusty, and full of dried fruits with some overtones of citrus. Balanced flavor. The finish is a little bitter from tasting alcohol. It might be better in six months. Damn shame I don’t age beer. Good addition to the Georgia brewing club.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
A: The beer pours a clear orange color with a big off-white head.
S: God this is bad. Pepper, ass, and burnt grain up front. Then, an intense earthiness comes through as does the very distinct smell of a wastewater treatment plant. Maybe some crappy veggie dogs in there too.
T: Toasted malt and a hint of toffee sweetness. There’s a cooked corn smell, veggie dogs, and even a slightly salty note. Earthy and pepper notes to the flavor also. Just bad.
M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation.
O: This was truly terrible.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sweet, decently Belgian-ish nose. Unfortunately, quite a sharp phenolic taste that offers little to praise. Not wretched, but not exactly high on the revisit list.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I saw the first offerings from Wild Heaven today, at Green’s, and had to try the Invocation. This BSPA was poured into a Duvel tulip, and it looked decent. The color was a bit more orange than typical for the style, and the head was one finger thick, and long lasting, but nothing like the lemon meringue like formations seen atop others. The smell was malty, with notes of banana, orange peel, and clove. The taste was not as mellow as Duvel, because the malt sweetness, and hop bitterness were not quite as melded together. That being said, this was a very decent flavor profile. Well balanced between sweet and bitter, and with complex, earthy-floral character. I think this was actually somewhat more like a Saison, than a BSPA. The mouthfeel was medium dense, and not exactly delicate. Easy to drink the 12 oz. bottle, and very exciting to see a Georgia brewer starting up on the right note.

ENBF. Pours golden with a white head, Nice Belgian ester aroma, with some lemony notes. Lighter side of medium bodied, with fine, spritzy like carbonation. Pale malt backbone with flavors of honey and pear, countered by an herbal hoppiness. Very dry with little sugars left. Not bad
