Non mi ha convinto. Per me il timo non si sposa bene con il concetto di birra. Di mio sono contrario a tutte queste estremizzazioni della birra, comprese le aromatizzazioni eccessive.

Pours dark golden with ample head, off-white. Not quite the mouthfeel you might expect in a wheat. Aroma definitely of thyme, and this also comes through in the taste. A really very clean beer, ending pleasantly with a mild bitterness.

On tap at Holy Grale in Louisville, KY. Beer pours a translucent golden-amber with a half finger of velvety bright white head. Nose conjures hay, spruce, thyme, earth, and bread. Flavor punches up front with spice and wheat before hitting a bitter thyme note. Finishes dry and nutty with a touch of dough. Medium-bodied with a slick and smooth mouthfeel.

On tap at Holy Grale in Louisville. Mouthfeel is slick and smooth. Taste is nutty with a thyme finish. The thyme aroma is not as strong as the finish. Overall great and interesting and would be fantastic with food. A well crafted beer.

On tap at City Beer. Pours dark orange with a white head. It has a pleasant aroma of fresh herbs, toasty malts, and a touch of earthy, piney hops. The flavor is herbal and spicy, with some fruity sweetness and a citrusy finish. this reminded me of the other dogfish head collaboration saison du buff, only the spice blend in this one is a little less in your face. I liked it . Different and tasty.

Draft, City Beer Store. I was happy to try this beer, but itís not something Iíd order again. In my opinion, itís only real value was as an experiment in transmitting a fresh herb flavor into a beer, and, in that capacity, it was a success. On the other hand, the beer is unremarkable to mediocre in every other capacity. Aroma is a huge wave of fresh thyme. It smells like pulling off branches from a bush and rolling them between your hands. Itís a lovely smell, but it doesnít really make a beer. The appearance was a murky brownish amber with no head. The mouthfeel was fairly watery. Low carbonation for no real reason. Taste was sweet and bland. I just picked up some vague caramel. The beer was entirely too small for the big thyme note. I just picked up very little other flavor, and other patrons felt similarly. Itís an interesting effort and accomplishes something that I havenít come across before, but itís just not compelling as a beer.

On tap at The Trappist poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting off white head. Aromas of carmel, thyme, earthiness, citrus and pine. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, toffee, light thyme, light citrus and light pine with a crisp dry moderatly bitter finish.
