Pours a light cloudy yellow with a very short lived white head. Aroma is herbal with obvious notes of mate traditional herbal drink in Brazil’s south) and honey. Taste is also herbal with notes of mate and light notes of hops leading to a lightly sweet and refreshing finish. Pretty good and quite unique.

Bottled. I really different experience. Nice orange color that starts with a nice white head but goes quicly and let a thin lace. Aroma is like that should be, ERVA-MATE, traditional drink at Rio grande do Sul and Paraguay (Served cold). Flavor is a little bit dry, and the erva-mate could be felt again. But not too intense like his aroma. Mouthfeel is dry and keep a smooth erva-mate finish. Nice different beer.

Cerveja diferenciada - feita com erva-mate. Coloração amarelo claro, um pouco turva. Espuma branco-neve, boa formação, mas some rápido. Cheiro de bagaço de cana-de-acúcar, leve e suave, não é desagradável. Sabor forte de madeira - defumado. Frisante. Lembra tereré

Bottle, february 08. Thanks Sergio! Shinny golden color with a small white head. Strange bittersweet flavor, spicy and deep with a profound mate aftertaste. Complex and interesting. A nice mate aroma with some sweet notes. Captivating. Medium palate, tasty with a lasting finish. An interesting, complex and surprising golden ale.

Bottled 330ml. This is a very singular beer, brewed with mate tea (herb). The mate tea is an herb used to make a typical and popular drink in Rio Grande do Sul that is a state in the very south of Brazil. This drink is called chimarrao and is also common in Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay. The beer has a hazy green color with a small white head. Aroma is very herbal, strong notes of mate tea. Taste is spicy, malty and sweety, notes of mate tea. Nice bitterness, typical from mate Alcoholic end. A really good brazilian beer. A huge contribution from Dado Bier to the brazilian beer culture.
