3.38/5  rDev -0.9%

12 oz bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
6.4% ABV.

A - An aggressive pour crowns this hazy copper beer with a tall and long-lasting off-white head. Chunky lace clings to the glass' surface after the suds have settled.

S - Earth-forward, Wrath has an English-American hop aroma of grass, wood chips, and bitter grapefruit peel followed by a tame malty aroma consisting of toast and very light caramel sweetness. Wrath doesn't bring it's namesake, instead, it's rather tame.

T - A little more malty in flavor, Wrath has some toasted white bread flavor with honey sweetness drizzled on top and finished out with subtle earthy hops who's profile is much less noticeable here than in the aroma. The yeast floating in the beer adds a "yeasty" like flavor to the brew though; no spicy or fruity esters, just "yeasty".

M - Nicely carbonated and light bodied leaning towards a more medium feel, Wrath is somewhat crisp and clean on the finish with balanced malt sweetness and hoppy bitterness for a nice and easy drinking amber.

O - I'm happy to see another local brewery bottling their offerings but Saint Francis' first release in it's seven deadly sins series entitled Wrath is anything but it's namesake. This amber ale highlights very little malt or hop character or depth, deciding to go with sheer ease of drinkability. By no means does it make Wrath a bad beer, it's just another beer.

3.36/5  rDev -1.5%

Reddish orange amber body, frothy foam at first, intricate halo of lacing in the glass.

Nutty specialty malt aroma.

Apple fruitiness, multigrain bread from the specialty malts. Pretty simple and straightforward. Light to medium bodied, slightly astringent yet fairly drinkable. Wouldn't really put this in a class above average. Definitely misnamed...

Thanks to Severstad for this one!

12oz bottle poured into pint glass.

Appearance is a deep orange-red speckled with yeast, minimal white head.

Smell is sweet honey.

Taste is very malt forward. A very predominant honey taste, with toffee and finishes with a light hop bitterness.

Overall not a bad brew, I'd drink it again.

Pours a light copper color with a short lived head that does leave some lacing on the glass. Good clarity, pretty good looking brew. The aroma is sweet and malty, with notes of caramel.

The taste has a saccharine sweetness with some caramel and toffee. Slight bitterness cuts the sweetness slightly but doesn't stop from cloying.

Light bodied, overcarbonated brew that is a bit too dry for style. Its a drinkable brew but falls short from the benchmarks of the style.

12oz bottle.

A: Hazy walnut-hued body under an inch of fine ecru head. Very good retention, great lace. Nice.

S: Very malt forward, with raw grain, caramel, and toastiness. Some slight herbal hoppiness, too. Ok.

T: Sweet, toasty maltiness dominates, with some apple and apricot fruitiness midway through and a straightforward finish featuring herbal hops and a bittersweet aftertaste.

M: Mouth-filling effervescence dominates a medium body. Enjoyable.

O: Pretty forgettable, but inoffensive. I picked this up as part of a mix-a-six on a visit to WI, having never heard of the brewery, and I can't say I'm eager to seek out more.

Cheers!
