COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who says lighter beers have to be boring? Let There Be Light is Wild Heaven’s first “sessionable” beer, coming in at only 4.7%, yet FULL of flavor. Starting with both barley and wheat, we added two rare hops—Nelson Sauvin and Sorachi Ace—along with a bit of orange peel, to create a complex beer with a citrus note that will change the way you think about “light” beer.

Suggested food pairings: Wings, fish & chips, Tomme-style cheese, brunch (the citrus picks up nicely), burgers. 7.3 SRM.

Note: Formerly contract brewed at Thomas Creek.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Citrus and malt, pretty good Appearance- Pours a clear dark gold color with a small tan head. Taste- This is where it heads south. I found the whole flavor "empty" up front and then finished with a malt taste, not much there at all, very disappointing. Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation Overall- it looks good, but the flavor is a real let down. All show and no go. I would not drink this again.

drowland (6771) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2015
5/30/15. On tap at World of Beer, Savannah. Copper, almost amber, pour under a small khaki head, mild lacing. Nice aroma, loads of citrus, some orange and lemon peel, dank, a small balance of doughy and caramel malts are welcome. The flavor is a bit disappointing, just generic bitterness, more of the rich maltiness coming through, caramel, doughy, a hint of nuttiness, some leafy green hops. Not bad.

jbruner (2920) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Pours a clear copper on tap with nice cp of off-white head. Aroma is bready malt with hint of toffee, taste follows. Simple and easy to drink, soft carbontion and medium body. Unimpressive, but not offensive.

Light flavor. Probably more aromatic than flavorful. Bitter finish, but not harsh. Good for when you’re looking for something not heavy.

FalconsFever (40) - Smyrna, Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Tasted in growler. Very light in color and taste. Labeled as pale ale but toe more of a lager. Definitely a smooth all day brew. Would have again but not much to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
