3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Liberty: Hazy, stoplight amber with a bone white head that’s quick to fizzle away to a thin ring. Aroma has lots of soft wheat, mild orange, lemon zest, & a very mild spice, although "thyme" would not be my first descriptor. Laid back, easy going... Much more spice with the first sip - now I can definitely pick out the thyme in the taste. Heavy thyme with a strong wheaty undertone, notes of orange & lemon zest fading into a thyme-laden, spicy finish. Easy drinking... You must enjoy thyme to enjoy this beer... Luckily, I like thyme! Refreshing, this is one for the warmer months. Unique & pretty tasty.

A snarler from Liberty Street Brewing and poured into a shaker pint.
This beer all-around is just the very definition of an entry-level/starter’s beer. First off, I’d definitely consider this a wheat beer instead of an herbed/spiced one. The wheat in this is extremely prominent. The beer itself has a nice citrus aroma to it with hints of spice, but it’s not something that will make you drool. For the taste, well. Confusing. At first, I was getting this unusual bitterness... like the beer was stale, or something. As I got down my glass, that weird flavor started going away, and the beer got more enjoyable. Compared to the Summer Shandy I had a few hours earlier... this isn’t much better, unfortunately. That weird initial stale sort of flavor threw me off quite a lot at first, but it did get a little bit better.
This beer’s alright... a safe bet if you don’t know what to get when you’re there, or need to make a quick decision. For the big beer aficianado though, this beer more than likely won’t have you jumping up and down.

Draft at crunchy’s. gold with some haze. Heavy heavy thyme flavor. More faint on the lime. Not a great flavor for beer.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a near clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of thyme with lemon and a touch of citrus. Flavor is thyme heavy up front with citrus and wheat coming out in the finish.

Tried my wife’s pint and thought it was pretty good for a summer wheat. My wife reported that while she likes lemony wheats - this one was a bit overdone. Overall not bad.

Growler to pint (thanks mikem409). Looks decent; a transparent copper with thin white lacing. Smells doughy and wheaty with notes of thyme. Tastes like it smells with a little bite from the lemon and hops. Average on the palate. Not bad.

Interesting beer. Summery ale with very unique spicing. Must be the thyme. The more I drank the more I enjoyed. I recommend to try.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Murky orange-brown body, no head. Herbal nose with thyme and lemon solvent; strong. Flabby, cerealy body with wheat, thyme, and lemon; the palate is lifeless and flat. Headache-inducing.
