Good beer. Nice taste it was like blended herbs rather than being able to taste the herbs individually. Good sourness and nice carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle from Sonoma Cellars in Delavan, WI, sampled at cellar temp from a Unibroue glass. Big pop when the cap is lifted and foam fills the glass, receding ever-so-slowly and leaving thick chunks on the sides above a cloudy light gold body...herbal-spicy aroma is sweeter than I’d expect (well, maybe not from this brewery) and at first it’s sort of a morass of herbs, but eventually I can certainly pick out the sage and rosemary, and I think a sort of raisiny character as well...thankfully not quite as sweet on the tongue as the nose promised, with spices fairly well integrated into the pale malty body; little bitterness...body is just a bit on the thin/watery side, carbonation tingly and just enough. This is a bit too sweet for what (I think) it’s supposed to be, but it’s drinkable enough and better I think as it warms. I’d be interested to try the Victory and Stone versions, guess I’ll be on the lookout now.

Bottle poured side by side with the other producers pour light gold with thin white head. Nose crystal malt, sage and thyme. Taste sweeter up front, less herbal than when fresh (4 year old) . Some sage and rosemary. Still a nice beer. Survived the best of the 3.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Daily Growler Powell. Hazy bright golden color with a medium thick fluffy white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, yeast and spice. Medium body with flavors of herbal yeast, citrus, malt and hops. The finish is floral yeast and fruit. Above average overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer and Wine. Aroma is restrained fruity esters, Belgian yeast, mild bubblegum, mild citrus. Appearance is hazy yellow with attractive sparkle, finger-width fizzy white head with poor retention and no lacing. Taste is as aroma with a spicy pepperiness as well. Palate is medium bodied with thin texture and lively, stinging carbonation that overwhelms the taste experience (best to let it sit a bit); dry, crisp lightly bitter finish. Overall, this is OK but with the mega-cast of characters brewing this you’d expect an All Star.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ar- hops and herbs dominate the nose, bright lemon and orange mix well with rosemary sage and a wispy floral component
Ap- clear and golden with a big white head that lingers at the edges of the glass
Fl- malt sweetness up front gives way to citrus notes, well balanced hop bitterness and a dry peppery finish. Hints of the herbs show up through Rosemary
Mf- soft and coating, hint of alcohol, lacking a bit in carbonation,
Ov- very nice beer. Wonderful nose, nice flavor, would love a bit more of the herbs and much more carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at PreFunk. Pours out a nice clear golden with soft creamy head, lazy carbonation. Slightly oily, creamy mouth feel, yeasty, grassy aroma and taste. Mild spice on the back on the finish leaves some tang lingering.
