COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mountain meadow is a great introduction to spring with its light golden color and notes of honey and herbs. Made with sage, chamomile, tarragon, and honey, the wonderful fusion of these ingredients give this blond ale a smooth, crisp, and refreshing flavor and a sweet floral aroma.

RedSox2004 (1137) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 4, 2014
Clear yellow gold with a one-finger frothy white head that leaves nice lace. Aromas of lemon and other light citrus with some honey, spices and bready malts. Flavors are similar, starting with some lemon zest, orange peel, and other citrus, then honey sweetness, green tea, herbs and a bready malt sweetness. Light to medium body, heavy carbonation, smooth mouthfeel and a finish of spices and herbs.

Franks (27) - Long Beach, California, USA - OCT 12, 2012
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.

A - Pours a clear golden-yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of lemon zest and other citrus smells with some coriander, sage, chamomile, honey, and other spices with some sweet bready malts. T - Starts off with some lemon zest, orange peel, and other citrus flavors, with some honey, chamomile, and sage. Through the middle, the herbs get a bit stronger with some sweet bready malts coming through alongside. The finish is a mix of honey, sane, chamomile, and other other herbs, with some lemon zest and a touch of sweet bready malts. M - Medium-minus bodied with heavy carbonation. Smooth with a spicy and herby finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice spiced beer with a good balance of spices that are nicely balanced and not overpowering.

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!
