   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2008
I should’ve stopped my pour sooner, because I ended up with a bunch of sludge at the bottom of the glass and many a partcle flaoating about. No head to speak of, just a few clusters of bubbles. It smelled of overly honeyed green tea with butter and some cabbage in it. That pretty well describes the flavor, alas, as well. Dry finish. The best part. The finish.

Beershine (5201) - 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.

Skyview (5150) - 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.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2008
Cloudy straw color with plenty of fish food swimming about. Smallish white head. Hints of citrus in the land of lagerdom. Some light wheat and pale malt sneak out every once and awhile. Quite smooth on the palate, but a touch lifeless as well. Light pale malt start with just hints of citrus, and lemongrass. I don’t find much unique in this one. Has some kolsch qualities and not much of a tea presence.

thornecb (4291) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 15, 2008
Pours hazy gold into a shaker. Bright white head quickly recedes to skim surface and hug rim. Very large carbonation bubbles. Malt and lager aromas. Sweet malt upfront with a heavily carbonated middle and a sour tea finish.

nick76 (4170) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2009
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.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2008
Courtesy PhillyBeer2112. Pours a cloudy, light, golden-straw color. A small, frothy, off-white head leaves traces of lines and spots behind. The aroma is as strange as they come, with notes of green olives, herbal tea, vinegar, and even hints of tomato. Flavors were quite different, as the vinegar component was replaced with citrus and coriander. There is a lemony zing to this one that adds to its refreshing nature. Lighter bodied and easy drinking, it finishes with a fresh, clean herbal feeling. This is a strange animal, for sure. I’m glad I got to try it.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2008
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.
