3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Strong aroma of sage, lemon zest and citrus. Copper appearance with strong foam. Intense herb overtones including sage, saffron and lemon grass. Undertones of orange peel, chai tea and biscuit. Overall, very pleasing and very fresh. Reminds me of a homebrew I made

Pours hazy amber with a finger of frothy head. Taste and aroma are mostly juniper and tea with some spice undercurrents. Some of Dogfish Head’s experiments seem unbalanced or gimmicky but this one works really well, IMO.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy but bright orange pour. Two to three inches white dense head. Buttery banana bread yeast and cloves in the nose, pretty enticing. Thick mouthfeel with average carbonation. Finish is a little sticky. Flavor is great. Juniper is bitter and effervescent, tea is only slightly noticeable. That flavor is mixed with pert yeastiness and cloves. Fairly rich offering so perhaps 12oz is a better idea of format. Finish is a bit of astringent flavor and heat, making ABV detectable. Not too shabby but difficult to drink a lot of.

Very herbal, like a Christmas beer. Too many exotic spices for my tastes. And now I'm forced to meet minimum word requirement.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle. Nice brass color, with a big, off-white head. Very nice aroma of vanilla, syrup, licorice, sawdust, and light smoke. Very sweet flavor up front, with a faint bitterness and some spiciness. Medium body, syrupy, and very chalky and dusty, Overall, this is a very curious and different beer, but tasty.

17.06.2013, tap @ Blind Tiger Ale House NY:
Small shortlasting head. Aroma is lots of clove, doug, ginger, pepper, grass, caramel, camomile. Taste is sweet and spiced, yeast, camomile, sugar, hay, cloves, pepper, ginger, grass, herbs, caramel. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough, but definitely a interesting beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy burnt orange with bubbly off white head. Aroma of chai tea, heavy clove, orange peel. Taste-chai tea clove bitterness, grapes saison finish. Floral middle. Not very diverse palate, somewhat difficult to drink due to the sour grape. I love chai, so i appreciate this beer, but don’t prefer it because of the sweet sour grape.

Hazy gold with thin rimming white head; aroma of Belgian yeast, soft subtle fruit and grain; Flava is mild but full mainly of grainy malty and yeasty notes; feels medium and finishes softly sweet but crisp and quenching and notes of grain

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden with a thin ring of white head. Nose is earthy sweet with some toffee and a bit of cardamom, cinnamon, and juniper. Flavor brings a lot of the juniper notes and tea flavors to the front, with a finish of cinnamon, earthy toffee, cinnamon, and clove, all on a slightly spicy blonde malt backbone.
