We brew our Strong Golden Ale all-grain, giving it a deep and complex taste.

Belgian aromatic malts add hints of dried fruit, while generous Noble and West Coast hops deliver an earthy spiciness. It finishes semi-dry with lingering tropical fruits and spicy notes from Belgian yeast.

Suggested food pairings: Roasted chicken, grilled pork chops, salmon, Portobello mushrooms, Gouda or Gruyere cheese.

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.

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.

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

Comes out of the tap a hazy honey-golden with a typical whitish head. Malty, slightly honey-sweet aroma is rather appealing. Flavor is malty and surprisingly hoppy, with hints of honey and apple, and the sweetness and bitterness balance each other nicely. Fizzy texture leaves behind a strong tingle and a hint of honey.

Draft. Pours a deep golden, slightly hazy, with a big white head. Aroma and flavor have the traditional Belgian profile: some clove, bubble gum, candy sugar, banana. But these flavors were subtly incorporated into a big, malty beer. Alcohol is not at all brash. Liked it a lot.
