daknole (10035) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Cloudy, deep gold pour, white head. Loved this beer. The sage plays so well with the beer. The light tartness, the sage, light oak, very light fruity notes. I would drink this with a lot of different foods. Really really a beer I enjoyed. Tap at The Source, GABF week.

TheAlum (6119) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Draft on tap at The Source (Denver, CO). Pours a nice dulled golden yellow hue, firm haziness in the body with frothy offwhite head atop. A nice layer dies to a thicker ring that laces well throughout. Aromas are tart, a bit of spicy sage with earth, lactic elements, gentle funk and cobwebs. Mellow bread, straw and spice. Initial is lighter overall in body with a firm bitter slant, spicy sage with lemon, oak and some citric elements. Bitter rind, bitter hops are floral, soem bread, gentle straw. Middle is is dry, bitter, some cereal bit furmly bitter as we come out. Funky brett, touch of yogurt with earth, more sage, green earth and gentle herbal feel. Dry, funky brett, bitter earth as we finish. A bit of sourness up front makes way for a more bitter and funky backedn. Earthy spicy sage. Solid.

SudsMcDuff (6451) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2014
on TaP at the Source, in Denver, last beer before we skedaddled .. . deep amber .. medium foam details .. . brett, mild spice, and herbs .. . refreshing and uplifting, the sage works well .. . . A brothel, but for petting high quality cats. Maybe even more than one at a time.

Draft at the Source, Crooked Stave, with Andrew. Pours a hazy bright golden body with thin white lacing. Aroma is herbal - leafy sage, oak and light tart character. Mouthfeel is super weird - lots of sage, grass, oak, and herbal/vegetable character. Nice, but a bit too much sage.
