redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Floral, artichokes, olives, tea in the aroma. Pours cloudy blonde with a white head. Funky, tea, floral, slightly hoppy, with a slight tartness, green tea aftertaste. Very unique.

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.

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.

Stew41 (1808) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2008
This tea based beer is a first for me. Light lemon /orange in colour; not disimilar to a German wheat beer. Soft of nose of mild sweet malts but not much else. Palate shows a little more; slightly honeyed malts giving way to a clear cold tea flavour with mild bitterness. The weiss flavours also hang around. Quite bland on one hand but points for being different. (EuR 8 from Bier & Fud, Rome).

Courtesy PhillyBeer2112. Pours an interesting looking dark yellow color with bits of whitish head. Aroma of green olive/caper brine, which I didn’t dig at all. Got less appealing as I drank on. Light carbonation, moderately thick body for the ABV. Mild taste - slightly sweet, a tad funky, a bit of citrus. The finish yields some hints of what is in the aroma - a little saltiness and vinegar. An odd and not entirely pleasant brew.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 4, 2008
2008 Bottle - Pours an opaque tan, little head, bitter aroma with slight tea, taste is utterly bland, slightly sours and with the slightest nuance of tea flavour. When I went back for the bottom third, all the yeast mud went into my glass, which was okay because apparently that is where the flavour hides. Even so, after paying $8, I felt like I was bent over....

Bottle shared with Phillybeer at Redlight, thanx guys.Pours a cloudy yellow color with a nice thin lacing that stuck around for the whole ride.The nose is of citrus, olives and some funk.Flavor was thin, citrus, herbs and olives with a slight hint of artichoke.Definately worth revisiting.The finish was light and refreshing.I would say this is one of the more stranger beers I have had.Solid.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Very unpronounced with a slight tea flavor that sparks a one dimensional bitter note heavily layered under some malt, water, citrus, and wheat. The finish isn’t bad with some nice carbonation and dryness.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Aroma -the aroma is light and it’s probably supposed to be. It is sort of the only thing going on at all. It has a little floral, honey, barnyard yeast about it. Appearance - the body color is a orange-yellowish color, the liquid very cloudy with bits of sediment present. There was no real head to speak of, and the little bit there is a super tiny halo (white) Taste - the taste is slightly sour, very light at that. There is a slight tang to it. Palate - the body is light, the texture thin, the carbonation is average in the mouth, and the finish short sort of tanginess. This beer was a real let down. Nothing going on here, wish I could report more, just wasn’t there.

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.
