Primarily a fruity aroma. A hazy light yellow with a white head. The taste of fruit with a hint of citrus. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, not a favorite.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle pours a hazy golden color with decent lasting white head. Aroma is not strong but has some unusual flavors. I wouldn’t know what goji berries and schisandra taste like out of this beer, but there is a ginger-like flavor along with some mild hop bitterness. Body is light to medium with a creamy mouthfeel and only slight carbonation. Interesting, refreshing, and easy to drink, but I won’t seek this one out again.

Can't say I like it ... Can't exactly say what they were going for... Just can't visualize it so well.. It's almost refreshing but weird ... Almost enjoyable first taste then gets strange... Tart... Maybe a hot day fast drinker but can't really get into this... Yet

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12-oz. bottle dated best by 14 July 2013 served in a snifter.
Poured a golden-straw color. Hazy with a small and semi-durable white head that leaves a moderate amount of lacing on the sides.
Contains schisandra, an unfamiliar herb/berry used in Chinese medicine which I had to look up and goji berries.
Aroma: Quite fruity, complex, pleasing and refreshing. The fruitiiness is unusual, but one of the stronger notes reminded me of raspberry jam. Bready. Hops too, but these are more obvious upon tasting.
Taste: Lightly sweet, bitter and tart. Components are similar to the nose, again with high complexity.
M: medium-light body. Medium, very soft carbonation. Slightly dry and crisp finish..
O: a unique and interesting fruit/herb beer well worth trying.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light gold - moderate haze - fairly thick lace - odd but interesting aroma of lemongrass, cedar, tart fruit, light honey - creamy texture, low carbonation - medium dry flavor - an odd, earthy bitterness, possibly from the wormwood - moderate vegetal notes - soapy flavors - chalky finish, with some herbal tea notes - a sloppy potpourri of flavors here.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy sunshine yellow with a one inch white head that lasts. Taste is of wheat, grass, pine, hops, spice, pepper. Similar aroma. Has a decent, creamy body. The finish is a bit dry. An interesting beer, that is easy to drink, refreshing and quite enjoyable.
