3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy gold with a large head that slowly dissipates. Aroma is nice and spicy with a little hay. Taste is good, get hints of the sage up front and honey on the end. Palate has lively carbonation and a thin body. Overall, a very tasty beer, and just enough spice to keep it interesting without overdoing it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong herbal aromas of sage and lavender rise off a beautiful crystal clear golden yellow body with a soapy white head. The herbs and honey all hit at the same time and strike a great balance between sweet and earthy. If there are hops in here, they’re buried under the herbs. There’s also a bready malt taste near the end and some floral notes around the sides. Finishes sweet with a lasting taste of honey and herbs. This really does evoke a feeling of spring (even if you taste it in the middle of summer like I’m doing!). Really delicious herb beer!
