COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a very unique and special beer as it was brewed with herbs rather than hops. The Ambrosia pours a hazy light amber color. The nose is citrusy, fruity, minty potpourri, and the flavor is quite similar. The sweetness of the beer is balanced with the floral and citrus tones and a strong citrusy tartness is detectable in the finish. A long lingering aftertaste sticks with you and begs you to take another drink. A slight hint of yeastiness in this unfiltered beer is also present. Legally, I had to add hops. I put in a handful of Perles

Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit soft and earthy with a bit of rosemary, thyme and some soft floral sweetness as well. A touch of nice fruitiness as well and lots of lean malt. Very dry and crackery with a nice linger floral/spicy character. Really tasty brew.

On tap: light amber pour and fairly clear, nose of citrus and herbal, tastes the same, word is the herbs used in this brew are hyssop and lemon balm. A decent gruit.
