3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taster at Jackie-Os. Mostly hazy pale yellow color. Thin off-white head. Big zesty lemon verbena nose, I like that. Plenty zest. Bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Kind of tart, zesty moderate sweet taste, moderate spice. Some ginger, honey. Love the zest, but the honey bite in the finish is a bit much for me

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample from the brewpub side. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a small white head. Notes of bready malts, florals, lemon, chamomile, rosemary, pepper, and ginger (which is how I interpreted the lemon verbena and yarrow, I guess). Light-medium bodied, with a dry, herbal mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Really nice, tasty, and unique. Perfect for summer. Glad to try this new one and hope to see it again.
