Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a cloudy yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma of tea and apple, faint honey, perhaps a little strawberry or grape. Flavor is light, faint fruit, some farmhouse. Light body with high carbonation. I liked this one, not bad.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Draft @ redlight redlight. Pours a hazy gold with a nice white head, leaves a little lacing on the glass. Light grassy, slight citrus and lemony aroma, with a some earthy hops. In flavor, a soft lemon and mild earthy must sit a top toasted malts and a light spice. Tea comes through most in the subtle tannic dry finish. Lush carbonation. Overall, decent saison, restrained and subtle.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Hazy golden yellow with off-white small head. Fresh, spritzy, slightly citrus hop. Soft mouthfeel. Flavors are slightly sweet, with herbal and orange overtones. Pilsner-like at times. Not pulling a lot of tea from it but it’s a nice brew and I don’t drink tea.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle: Pours a golden yellow color with a light white head. The nose is grassy with some light wood and toasty pale malts, some mild yeast esters and a touch of green hops. The flavor is slightly astringent reminiscent of tea along with pear and some hop bitterness. Grassy, fruity and floral towards the end. Fairly timid yet it’s interesting for the whole glass.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2008
Thick opaqueness. Light blonde. Complex aroma of strawlike malts, tea. Soft malt, tea, slightly floral. Slightly tannic at the back, but thats quite minimal, maybe the least of any tea beer Ive had. Balanced, refreshing, very drinkable.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Bottle: Pours cloudy golden with a thick frothy white head. Aroma is sweet and herbal with a touch of doughy pale malt, honey and sweet/natural green tea. Very interesting aroma. Fluffy light body.Mild flavor but with distinct character. Honeyish with light dough notes and evident green tea character. Surprisingly reminiscent of green tea with honey. An herbal touch, along with residual spiciness and mild hop dryness into the finish. Fairly mild, but its very interesting and individualistic. It works in its subtly.

Bottle @ Mondial 2008. Nose is a decent malt, with some fine hops too, cloudy amber, small white head. Taste is malt, some noble hops , a trace of woodiness. Light bodied, sweet, pleasant mouth feel. Very good.
