Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas during the three day Stone Event, 16-18 september 2011. Slightly hazy yellow color, vast creamy white head. Smell fresh, indeed green tea, hops and bitter. Taste green tea as well (very nicely done!), bitter and hops. You don’t taste the 9,2%ABV. Good carbo, full body.

Botella. Hazy deep orange colour, white lively head, good lacing. Fresh herbal like fruity hoppy aroma, pleasant. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is fruity and bitter, herbal, piney like, dry indeed, more bitterness. Oyshiee.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle… Clear golden ale with thousands of white yeasties and a small, creamy, white head. Pungent, musky, peppery aroma. Medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Not picking up much tea in the flavor; just rindy hop bitterness. Finishes bitter and abrasive. Too bitter (without meaningful flavor) for my wimpy palate. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home. Somewhat hazy, yellow-orange appearance with a foamy, white head. Herbal, faint tea, moderately piney, dank hoppy nose. Kind of a weird organic, herbal, piney, dank, lightly citrus hoppy flavor with most of the tea on the finish. Green tea, piney, dank aftertaste. Weird brew that’s ok but not all that impressive.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This brew pours a slightly hazy amber-gold color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Sticky rings of lacing. Aroma of floral hops, sweet tea and citrus. Medium body with a noticeable green tea character and notes of citrusy hops, caramel and mild spice. The finish is fruity with note of resiny hops and tea left over. Above average overall, another interesting collaboration.
