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.

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.

Awktoberfest (300) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - APR 27, 2013
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

berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - APR 18, 2013
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.

chinchill (1887) - South Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2013
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.

notalush (4859) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2013
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.

scooterbub (830) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 14, 2013
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.
