3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Fullsteam. Pours a amber-gold with a small white head. Nose of rye, easygoing hops, some interesting yeast (maybe Triangle’s contribution?), some light ginger and basil/rosemary notes. Taste shows a bit more of the latter. I like the herbal notes. An interesting and refreshing collaboration.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is quite spicy from the rosemary, as it really dominates both the taste and smell. Taste is a little sweet, and reminds me a little bit of Christmas, actually. Not a huge fan of it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours soft pale golden amber with a tight sandstone tan head. Nose is lightly sweet (in a good way) and herbal with a touch of citrus and rosemary. Rosemary comes through at the front of the mouth with a very light perceptual sweetness. Light acidity on the finish and a touch of earthy bread. Light medium body with a round palate and dry finish.
