3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Cloudy straw, huge rocky white head, clumpy lacing, lively carbonation.   Big spicy nose, Sage most likely as thats what it states on the bottle.   Its quite herbal in fact.   Soft earth, very herbal, slightly dry with a brush like aftertaste.   This one is quite strong, lingers for quite a while, with a soft earthy plant like astringency.   Very minor floral aspects as well.   Body is moderate to full, mouthfeel is soft and spritzy.   Very interesting, in the nose, and at the start, but the back end could use a bit of taming.   Otherwise its quite nice and refreshing for a change.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The pour is a cloudy yellow with a white head. The aroma has the distinctive note of sage along with some floral and herbal qualities. The flavor is of sage, some other herbs and a slight touch of pepper. Finish is weak and somewhat watery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Swingtop bottle at the winking lizard - Pours cloudy blonde with an enormous white head that takes a long time to settle back. Almost seems overcarbonated to me. Aromas of sage, grains, yeast, and some floral notes. Flavor is sage, honey, yeast, grains, lemon, very earthy. Light body with plenty of carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I really like this beer, going through two of them in successive nights. Pronounced herbal aromas, really earthy. Leafy green vegetable bitterness alongside a little mint and bread dough. Nice conditioning in the clear pour, through the sediment as real lemony dimensions at the end. A flavorful beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma was spicy and peppery with a moderate herbal note. Sweet candy came to mind with a lightly citrus and grassy presence in the background. The aroma was fruity and complex. The golden beer was slightly hazy with a moussy tall white head which laced the chalice from top to bottom. The flavor was lightly spicy with pepper and cinnamon and an herbal quality. The spices were complex and well achieved. The flavor was lightly sweet at first on the palate but was tamed immediately by a spicy and grassy bittering which finished with a slight flourish of citrus. The body was medium with a sizable carbonation which led to a creamy texture on the palate. The peppery spice lasted well into the aftertaste and beyond. An immediately interesting and complex beer, well done! 11.15 fl ounce flip top bottle.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet and savory so I’m expecting a nice balance and interesting flavor profile. I’m overwhelmed by the full and frothy mouthfeel. It leads me astray but I eventually find my way back to the flavor of the beer. I enjoyed this more with every sip. The sage really stands out and is an interesting component to the brew. Not one that I took to right away, but I’d definitely come back for more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (Thanks Bov!). Honeyish golden colour with huge white foamy/bubbly head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with some honey and spices in it. Totally lovely aroma. Also some fresh forest in the aroma. Flavour is herbs, some spices and juniper-wood. Mediumbitterness along with the other flavours. The herbs stay long in the aftertaste. A very refreshing and nice brew!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Swing-top 33 cl bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando. Aroma is sweet and fruity with a potent spicy note that I rather enjoy. The body is a dull yellow/gold and holds a three fingers thick bubbly white head that is very lasting. Bitter and herbal at first with some dry sweetness and lots of floral spice and bitterness. Very crisp mouthfeel....nice drinking feel to it. Very nice brew.

Bottle. Poured hazy orange with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate spice and yeasty aroma. Light to medium body with a slick texture. Medium spicy sweet flavor with a medium spice finish of moderated duration. Refreshing beer.
