On cask at Washington Brewers Cask Festival, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Nose is quite herbal, with earthy notes and pine cone. Flavour is even more herbal, with earthy notes, light spice, and tea-like notes. Strange stuff, but it works pretty well. Not bad.

(Cask) Interesting. I like it although it is I think too bitter and unbalanced. But it’s certainly different! I would like to try other nettle beers, maybe with honey?

Silky-smooth cask beer. Had this at pine box in Seattle. Herb flavors and a stinging bite. Interesting beer.

Firkin @ Bailey’s Taproom... Poured a muddly looking brownish with a nice creamy, frothy white head. Nice lacing and retention. Aroma of spicy pepper-like notes. The nettles certainly came off as peppers like habanero or something. Herbal and earthy. Tea-like notes with sweet malts. Quite interesting. Very good beer.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 On tap cask at Von Trapp’s. Cloudy yellow gold pour. Aroma of hay, astringency like markers, chocolate malt, wheat. Tastes grassy boozy, bitter herbs like radish greens, not that dissimilar to hops. Tingly on the palate! Am I getting stung!?
