COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with wormwood, goji berries, and schisandra. Deftly, this spring brewed venture lands on its feet. Springboard combines oats, ancient Chinese herbs and Mt. Hood hops to maintain a balanced equilibrium for such an exhilarating ale. This cloudy blonde has a spirited threshold, and a creamy body, followed by a refreshingly dry finish.

Sorta hard to compare Springboard to much of anything given the odd variety of this and that in the brew. It does have a bright, balanced taste with a smooth finish. A nice part of the variety summer 12-pack.

Flavor wise this is an okay beer. It's pretty mild, neither the Goji Berries nor the Schisandra add much complexity (though that might not be fair of me to say, since I have no idea what either taste like, look like, or if they even exist). And it finishes crazy dry. After two or three you're definitely getting cotton mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium white head that leaves decent lacing. Smells of berries, citrus, grass, and mild hops. Tastes of all the same things. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation. Overall this is a pretty good beer. The use of odd ingredients pays off. Too bad they discontinued it. Glad they brought it back for their spring mix pack this year.

Beerenberger (1601) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear gold with a 2-finger head that dissipates quickly and no lacing. Aroma is grapes and bread. Taste is semi tart with grapes, bread, and yeast. Very refreshing beer.
