2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap: slightly hazy orange with minimal white head. Aroma is dusty, woody, and a peppery herbal tea. Flavor is leafy herbal tea bitter with gritty wood notes, a little pepper, malt, and a sweet/tart finish. Overall, not my favorite type of beer with odd mix but this is ok. Goes down with food well, otherwise a bit hard in flavor.

Hazy orange pour with an off white head. Aroma is spicey and herbal. Taste is like a tea with some bready malts. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours with a very minimal (very very lightly) hazed golden to light orange hue with a large bone hued head that slowly recedes, but still has pretty decent retention. Aromas are very herbal and spicy. I guess I misread the label...I was thinking Chai, not Chi. Interesting. Chinese 5 Spice, clove, sezuchan (sp?) peppercorn, pine, tea, earthy, pepper. Quite spicy and floral. Medium bready malt character. Light butterscotch notes. Some floral and possibly slightly oxidized hop character. Flavor is medium sweet, floral and herbal. Bready, biscuity, crystal malt, ice tea, green tea. Complex herbal character that I cant quite place. Definitely something clove like, lightly peppery. Not too much else. Hope this doesn’t mess too much with my plans for sleep in an hour or so. Interesting. Light peppery heat at the back of the throat. Pretty tasty, but nothing special. Medium bubbles, nice malt backbone. Light tannins on the mouth. Lightly lingering sweet and floral notes. Decent.

Smells herby but I don’t know exactly what because my nose is a bit stuffy. Looks great. Red-orange fade from top to bottom. This is pretty bubbly and light on the tongue with a bit of sun-heated tea flavor to it. I actually like it quite a bit as a change of pace beer.

An interesting brew. A danky burnt apricot color with a head that recedes leaving a silky sheet and a puddle of cream floating. Smells of malted biscuits and dried herbs. Medium full nectar with good carbonation. Dry and very herbal with a moderate malt profile. A bit of acidity on the finish for bittering. Thumbs up for creativity.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz pint at the brewpub pours a hazy orange with zero head. Nose is like a box of crayons, waxy plastic, faux citrus, herbs, perfume, orange candies. Flavor has more punch, sweet orange soda, thyme, lavendar. Tastes like herbal tea that someone mixed with orange seltzer. Medium bodied, oily finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly muddy brownish glow with a ruby tint and a thin, but noticeable tan head. Aroma of tea, caramel, alcohol, pit fruits and some very minor sweetness. Medium-bodied; Strong, very potent flavour of malt, tea, nuts, earth and a little spice and herbal characteristics. Aftertaste is not very pleasant packing more of a spice and tea note than anything of signifcant value and the finish isn’t spectacular. Overall, an okay beer with a decent idea turns into a beer definitely worth passing up - especially if it’s full price. I sampled this pint on draught at Pete’s Brass Rail in Danville, California on 19-March-2011.
