4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Park Lane. Aroma is strongly Chai. Surprisingly authentic chai. Barely even a whif of beer. Hops are noticeably missing from aroma. Appearance is amber with a nice white head. Taste is strongly chai with a hint of juniper on the back end and a bit of a burn in the very back of my throat. The spices really come through. Overall a great beer. This is unlike any beer Iíve ever had and I would definitely purchase this again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml Bottle. As soon as you open this one you can tell its from Dogfish based on the distinct and odd aromatics. Pours a light straw color with no head. Aroma is spicy with strong tea notes and a bit of rye and lemon grass in the background. This "beer" has a noticeable sweetness to it that lingers on the palate. The rye character shows up in the flavor along with some subtle spice notes of junipers, ginger, grass and coriander. Surprisingly it is fairly well balanced and the palate isnít syrupy or thin. Ends with a hint of clove, yeast and a touch of caramelized sugar. Not a beer Iíd want everyday, but definitely another unique creation from Dogfish.

Pours a cloudy orange with a thin head. Aroma is spicy like the chai thats in it. Hints of cinnamon, clove and a small trace of nutmeg. Flavor is comprised of all the spices above will still being very refreshing. Palate seemed to be concentrated with black tea. Very Delicious.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orange, with a small off-white head. Aroma is heavy with ginger, spices, coriander, and pepper. Full bodied flavor with fruits, sweet malts, and gets very spicy in the finish, which is very dry and bitter, with a long duration. Overall very nice, balanced, and different.

A very unique beer. I have never had a herbal mint tea beer before.. not bad for a summer drink. 9% ???, hard to believe, seems like 2%.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Pours a bright golden color with lots of particles swirling around. Very pungent and sweet taste. Complex with citrus, berries, tea leaves. Pares great with food, salmon especially, a little too sweet for my tastes on its own. Interesting beer for sure, thereís nothing else quite like it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle tasting at work. Iím a bit surprised this hasnít been placed in the spiced category. A hazy golden pour follows into a small, white head. Nose is a pronounced belgian yeast aroma followed with hints of juniper and chai tea. Palate is light to medium bodied with a creamy texture. In the taste the traditional chai flavors really shine through, expecially in the finish. A slightly sweet, relaxing summer beer best served chilled. Be careful though, it is a beer for a very specific group of drinkers. Lovers of the belgian yeast strains who enjoy chai tea and a light summer beer will really enjoy this... if you donít enjoy those things, you probably wonít like this beer. That said, I really enjoyed this beer!

It has a citrusy, orange look, smells like a banana.Sweet. Apparently this is what chai and juniper berries smell like? I dig it.
