Wild Heaven Invocation
As part of a beer trade with Lance Martin (Beers of the Night) and Alfred Hugh Leonard III I received a bottle of Wild Heaven Invocation, a Belgian-style Golden Ale. The beer pours an orange-colored golden color with a foamy white head. The aroma consists of yeast, orange, lemon, spices, pepper, and coriander. The taste is bitter and slightly smoky with some charcoal, pepper, and coriander. After the dryness and spiciness subsides some orange and lemon come out to smooth on the tongue. The alcohol content is 8.5% ABV. The smoky and charcoal flavor in this beer was unexpected, but enjoyable. It is much more dry than I anticipated, but I would recommend this to anyone.
