Bottle @ redlight. Big herbal aroma with hints of dark calamata olives, slightly vegetal with hints of canned artichoke hearts, thyme and lemon verbena. Cloudy yellow color. Mildly tart. Clean herbal finish. Mild spiciness. Smooth and zesty, very refreshing, a great warm weather beer. Quite nice and 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.

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.

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.

drpimento (2237) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Not bad, not bad. Poured with a small, cream colored head that quickly faded and no lace. Color is a very slightly hazy amber with some particulates. Aroma is malt, hop, tea, yeast. Flavor is like aroma plus some surprising tartness up front. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and tartness fades to sweet before a bit of tart bittersweetmess at the very end. Long finish. Nice drinking beer. Could have some more of this.

Rastacouere (6131) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2008
Opaque, but very, very pale yellow. Tiny white head. Very well extracted tea flavour immediately escapes the bottle once it’s opened. Fresh, herbal., leafy… even more pronounced in mouth. Zesty, lemony, fresh acidity. Sweetness kept under control. Excellent small-bubbled carbonation constantly regenerates the tastebuds. Marvellous acidity all throughout. Refreshing wheat profile. Very light, but still excellent beer.

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 it’s very interesting and individualistic. It works in it’s subtly.

Oakes (12633) - 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 that’s quite minimal, maybe the least of any tea beer I’ve had. Balanced, refreshing, very drinkable.
