Pours a red copper with a nice off white head and great lacing. Aroma is heavy juniper and sage, somewhat off putting at first but mellows a bit and some citrus notes come through. Taste has more subtle juniper and sage along with citrus and pine. Interesting.

Pours a very deep amber/orange with nice off-white head. Sweet malt, floral hops, grapefruit, caramel, herb, and a definite flavor of sage. Complex and full bodied. This stuff is sweet, bitter, and spicy. I am very glad to have tried it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Interesting beer with a lot going on. First impression is that it’s very tea-like, with yerba mate qualities. Juniper and sage are definitely there as well. Toasty malts. Piney hops. Balanced sweetness and bitterness. Drying, tannin-like finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours dark clear amber with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly with good lacing. Aroma has strong notes of pine and citrus hops as well as toasted malt / caramel. Flavor is well balanced; initial blast of citrus hops, followed by strong roasted malt character, finishing extremely bitter into the aftertaste. Alcohol is well masked in this complex beer.
