What a great different beer....so unusual and I consider a great priviledge to have tried this. An herbal beer but to me it does not seem to have the intention of other beers adding herbs as a predominate flavor. This had a sage pine aroma. Flavors through its tight carbonation tased of lavender and some sea slat with a barnyard basement flavors. A MUST IF YOU GET THE CHANCE!!!!!!

808s n FartRates review #7 this german whale courtesy tossed by Cateman197
Pours a hazy gold with a smallish head.
The aroma is piney and yougurty... odd... sorta cool... sorta medicinal.
The flavor is tart and very piney. It’s got a touch of bitterness... some lactic funk... but mostly lots of pine needles.
I thought it was tame enough, they might have overdone it on the pine needles though.

On tap @ Presidential Suite. Thanks, Aaron. Hazy peach color with a white head. Lots of pine and gingerbread aromas. Smells kind of dusty old Christmas decorations. Tastes like a pine tree. Hints of gingerbread and molasses sweetness. A little bit of cocoa powder. But mostly just pine. Weird fucken beer.
