Bottle ay home ... HUGE thanks to Spacecoyote for this baby...Bottle opened with a bang... but it didnt gush ... NICE opaque yellow orange ... with big bubbly white head ...yeasty fruity hop nose ... bit carbonated up front but behind that is a rich complex body ... lots of fresh clean lemon ... peach and apricot .... light hint of maybe jasmine ... floral... little bready ... a great summer refreshing beer (and its a nice day in scotland ... Supped with Dinner in the Garden )... other than a bit heavy on carbonation ... nice

Tap at OTH. Interesting concept that the one of using 50% tea leaves with 50% hops. Italian beer landscape is quickly becoming very interesting and tasty. Pours hazy amber/orange with white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy, plenty of herbal freshness and some faint sweet notes. Taste, hoppy, there is a definite light leafy presence. Though weak in alcohol, the mouthfeel is very smooth with a light sour finish of peach*apricot with a bitter mix of citrus fruits.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Sampled during Stub & Herbs March Tasting in Minneapolis, MN and shared by deliriumfest. Pours a hazy golden brew with particle chunks and a thin white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of citrus and perfume hops, brown autumn leaves, and some white bread dough. Taste is medium bodied, floral and light bread malt flavor with a touch of lemon zest. Finish is a tad watery, crisp with some great tea aftertaste.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Poured at Belmont Station. Light hazy yellow with a thin white head. Very doughy malt nose like fresh bread dough, soft herbal hop character. Palate was very light, airy high carbonation, very dry finish. faint tart note. I didnt really get any of the green tea flavor from it, to light bodied to get the green tea sweetness.

The aroma is sour and funky like a wild fermentation. There is also herbs and flowers in there as well but not much tea. The appearance is almost flat looking cloudy gold. The flavor is like the aroma but the tea taste comes through. The palate is thin from low carbonation. Overall its interesting.

(750ml bottle) Pours a hazy pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, florals, toasted grain, and earthiness. Flavor of lemon, pepper, floral, and grass.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2008
From Belmont Station in Portland, OR...Poured a light mustard orange murky hue with a soft whitish bubbly thin head. Nose of mildly dull citrus notes and a watery fruits. Low carbonation levels no pop when uncapping and thin on the tongue. Finished a little disappointingly drab. Somehow it remained on the back of the tongue a quasi cloying manner. Eh.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2008
pours a hazy light golden-yellow color with a huge foamy white head. Very earthy aroma of floral hops and green tea leaves. Carbonated up front with a crisp golden fruit and prominent green tea flavor. Creamy with an excellently quafable finish of green tea, golden fruits, alcohol and hops. Very unique and quite good.
