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.

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.

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.

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.

Draft at Redlight. Cloudy hazy gold pour with a thin white head. Black tea, slightly cardboard aroma. Malty sweet, spices, citrus, black tea taste. I am kind of mssing what’s suppose to be going on here.

pours a cloudy yellow color. tea flavors don’t really show up until the end and by the point it isn’t strong enough. very syrupy and sweet. could use some extra carbonation or tartness.

Trys to pour a white head but it doesn’t so there is no lace. Hazy light amber/orange color, looks like yeast is settling in glass. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Orange, grassy nose. Flavor is tea, grass and sour orange. Weird beer. Expensive at $8.79 for a 375ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

Bottle. Zero taste. Expensive. Not worth the price. Tastyes like flat budweiser infused with leaves. Cool bottle though

Bottle in bologna. I guess you have to try everything once? Some tea here, perhaps, but not in any way a balanced beer. A sort of weiss would be the closest realtive, there is some citrus here. If they crack the code, they could make light green tea weissens and imperial tea breafast stouts. Or cream tea ales.....

Pour is lightly hazed golden with thin white head and some white chunks...smell is very very grassy and herbal and really smells like wort...taste is sweet and light with a hint of tea flavoring and dryness in the finish...
