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.

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.

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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very woody and herby in scent. Slightly foggy yellow color which is my favorite beer color for some weird reason. Starts off slightly malty then the rosemary and thyme come through beautifully with a Nice smooth spicy finish. Medium body with wonderful crisp carbonation that tingles throughout the whole profile. Love all 3 breweries great collaboration to push the boundaries of where beers can go. Nice work.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a clear, golden hue, with a presentable layer of white, bubbly head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was a touch of yeast that was quickly displaced by pronounced grass & greenery, herbs, resin, & spice. Piney rosemary, thyme, and lemongrass were keys, with only a hint of sage showing some herbal earthiness. Rather light bodied, with only moderate carbonation, the taste contributed some earthy & lingering bitterness. Basically, the whole essence of the style was blown out of the water by the Simon & Garfunkel theme, and would have appreciated a little more body and livelier effervescence as my initial review of the Stone rendition revealed. Must have been overwhelmed by the grouping of heavy hitters back then.
