I really enjoyed this beer, in part because I am partial to yerba mate on its own, but also because of the interesting play it has with the malts and the hops. I’ve been thinking about brewing a beer with tea, and this beer proves that tea can be very worthwhile addition to a beer. It has a sweet and bitter flavor of an IPA with the distinct flavor of the yerba mate.

Lots of musty basement notes. Grainy and wet with stange medicnal character. Hard to pinpoint what was wrong with this but it did nothing to impress.

Aroma - standard piney angle, but very low keyed...floral without much character. Not horrible.

Appearance - crystal clear body, golden orange...nearly lifeless pour

Taste - very herbal, not sure what Yerba Mate tastes like, but there’s nothing out of the ordinary here. Light caramel, snappy hop bite, light apple juice too.

Palate - thin, seemed a bit undercarbonated...watery

Overall - Picked up a bomber of this and their Golden ale. $4 a pop, not really worth it.

Bottle shared at a hotel tasting at RBWG 2010. Pours a hazy golden with a thinning head. Aroma is herbal, minty, spicy tea, flowery, grass, and some earthy horse funk,. Flavor is herbs, old stale cheesy hops, mineral, old leather, spice, tea, grass, and very astringent and bitter finish. meh.

Pours opaque and amber with a frothy crown. Fresh citrus fruit and floral hop aroma, herbal notes, cereal malt. Taste is clean, spicy-bitter, tea and pampelmousse. Crisp mineral finish and medium viscosity with late warming alcohol. I think this herbal IPA is refreshing, uncomplicated and underrated.

Bottle. Pours a golden body with a white head. Citrus, light floral and earth tones. Soft earth with a light honey presence, a viney citrus tone with a lightly apple cider finish. Okay.

Always wanted to try this, but never wanted to pick up a whole 6pk as Yerba Mate is supposed to work on getting the heart beating. Pours only a slight hand. Bit of foam on top of an orange sea. Clear orangy body with only a few bubbles. Hoppy aroma. Mouthfeel is odd. As I take a sip its like gas is being released inside my mouth. Not just the first time, but the second time too. Some rubbery flavors amongst the hoppyness. Eh. Basically confirmed my assumption I should only buy a single bottle.
