vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Pours hazy golden / yellow with a small white head. The aroma has ltos of sage, earthiness, dry caramel, lemongrass, lemon peel and a hint of brett - all is blended together very well. It has a medium crisp body with mild carbonation. The flavor starts with dry earthy with sage and brett giving it ha fall leaf aspect. Its very dry, rustic and refreshing. There some tartness, but its in the background and not overwhelming. The finish shows more lemongrass and mild hoppiness of the herbal nature. Excellent beer.

bubbleflubber (2037) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2015
On draught at the brewery, this pours golden into the glass with a soapy head that leaves suds lacing. The nose is dominant of earthy sage. Flavors of sweet malt, lots of grains and finish with a huge spicy sage note. Super easy to drink and complex on the palate, the mouthfeel is semi-active that provides an easy quaff. Delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
