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.

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

phaleslu (7670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Draft at World of Beer in Savannah. Pours a clear, bright gold with a small white head. Surprising hops on the aroma, with some grass, lemon, wheat, and orange peel. Flavor of wheat, crackers, straw, grass, and citrus. Light body, mellow carbonation, malty and wheaty mouthfeel. Nice sessionable beer.

On tap at Trappeze Pub. Pours a clear gold with an amber hue and a near white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a good amount of grass with light grains and a slight dryness. Flavor has grassy throughout with a grain backbone and a hint of light fruit.

Westmeister (2095) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Draft @ Taco Mac Cumming. Pours a clear amber/orange with medium head and decent lacing. Smell is some fruity esters, sweet caramel malts. Taste is mild citrus and earthy hops with a nice caramel malt compliment. Extremely sessionable and all around a good refreshing brew.

Cybercat (4088) - Georgia, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Pours a clear dark golden with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled pale golden tan head. Aroma has malty, wheaty and fruity tones with a woody hint of hops. Flavor has a malty core plus fruity and wheaty/yeasty notes and a woody hop tone that suggests it was dry-hopped. Texture has good body and fizz. This is definitely a good beer for sipping on a hot day while relaxing on the porch.

rdixon77 (1591) - Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Light amber pour with lots of carbonation and not too much foam. The smell had a malty base, but some earthiness and spice in there. The taste followed adding in some hop bitterness.Nice low alcohol beer. Definitely interesting enough to have a few.

mixmasterob (975) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 23, 2012
Growler. Clear amber pour with a small white head. Aroma was biscuity, good bit of caramel and a light lemony/citrusy hop presence. Flavors were light all around, bits of caramel, some earthy hops and a biscuity maltiness. Mouthfeel was medium to light with a nice caramel driven finish. Carbonation just about standard which is nice. Overall this drank very nicely outside with friends. Truly sessionable. A nice offering.
