2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a cloudy yellow with a weak white head. The aroma has an herbal appeal initially. Upon closer discretion, it really does smell like green tea with lemon. Wheat as well. Mild altogether. It reminds me of the Arizona Green Tea actually. The taste has ginger and wheat. It does taste like a blend of tea and beer as advertised, which are two things that I enjoy. However, this combination strikes me as rather foul. The aftertaste is a strong tea and wheat. Medium in body with a slight rough texture to it. Carbonation is lighter. I expected to enjoy this one, but I was very disappointed.

Now available in can. I found it at Rayís liquor in Wauwatosa. Pours a light straw with a large foamy white head. Citrus and grassy aroma. Flavors of lemon, coriander,and a little ginger. Very slightly bitter finish. Light body with a little alcohol warmth. Delicious big beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Milwaukee Ale House. Mildly hazed straw yellow with a white crown. Aroma is floral and herbal with ginger and light cinnamon. Tastes like herbal tea and is overdone on the herbal and spicy notes. Some orange peel and yeast lurks way in the background.

On tap at the brewery. Floral aroma. Smooth to drink especially considering the 9.2 ABV.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Milwaukee Ale House Ė Downtown. Poured clear, brighter golden with a short, creamy white head. The aroma picked up sweet fruity, floral, and herbal notes over a fresh wheaty base.. some grassy notes too.. interesting, but there was a whole lot of tea influence. The flavor found tangy wheat and bready notes at the core, with a whole lot of tea again (mostly bitter floral and herbal).. finished bitter and muddled, with big tea clashing with tangy wheat. Medium-plus bodied with high, creamy carbonation on the palate.. too bitter in too many places.. Iím not big on tea-infused beer, but this one was OK.

Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. Very strong aroma of the wheat. Worth trying.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 This is a very unique beer, in many respects. It looks great with a beautiful golden hue. A great, unique aroma that contains hints of spice and tropical fruit with some herbal influence that comes from the tea it was brewed with. Surprisingly rich and bold in flavor with powerful spices that develop in complexity as it warms. This was a surprising and memorable brew. And it is 9.5%!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I had this on tap at Mariaís. Itís clear with a decent head and nice lace. Itís really fruity in kind of a Hawaiian Punch sort of way but there is a touch of grain in the nose to keep it grounded in the world of beer. I think they kind of overdid the orange peel and/or spices here. Itís rather sweet and though the texture is reasonably light and drinkable itís still not really my thing.
