Is infused with Bancha, an organic steamed green tea grown in China. This ale has a pleasant green tea flavour and aroma that is both refreshing and rejuvenating.

Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear pear juice color with all tea leaves on the aroma. When I saw a green tea beer, I expected maybe a hint of gree tea, but you might as well be drinking tea here. Very clean and refreshing beer. Bonus points for being so unique. Nice light beer here.

Pale, straw. Lots of matcha aroma and flavour, with a very mild, fresh pale malt character. Fun.

Draught at WA Brewers Festival, 2014. Totally unexpected and interesting. Seems exactly like green tea. Pours a hazy golden color that’s slightly unlike beer. Nose and taste are both heavily laden with green tea, and nothing else. Odd, but interesting. Not bad if you like green tea.

A great beer. Not what I expected. Pours a very light grey yellow. Smells of green tea. But taste is very fruity, peaches and raspberries. Very smooth, malty finish, like a tea. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nose of straight up green tea with mild sweetness underneath. Pale gold hazy w a thin head. Flavor of green tea lightly sweetened soft malt backbone with more green tea in the finish. Like a sweetened carbonated Japanese green tea. Really refreshing and super drinkable. Maybe they are dialing this in or I just like green tea more than everyone else. Not bad.

AmEricanbrew (6331) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Tap@Brouwers 25Jul2012. Hazy golden color with wispy white head. Big earthy green tea, herbal, marshmallow aromas. Light body with average co2. Brewed green tea, earthy herbal flavors with light pale maltage--not enough malt to quash the astringence of the Bancha tea--decent tho

after4ever (6688) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Draft at the Empire. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a loose, sudsy, fish-eye-bubble white head. Big acetic green tea nose--that nutty, musty, corked-like quality that green tea gets when it’s over-steeped. Light body with big-bubble carb. Green tea all over the mid palate, kinda musty. Very acetic finish. Weird.

amg800 (237) - Ada, Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Sampled at the brewery. Pours cloudy golden, very little head. Strong green tea aroma. Dry tea flavor. Thin and light. This beer is way out of balance, the green tea was too intense. I didn’t finish the sampler.

Golden in color, clear with a thin tan head. Light tea like aroma in the nose with light hops. Nice easy drinking ale. Not much in the flavor it is very very light.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2010 Hazy banana wheat color with a nice silken white head--akin to a wit in appearance. As advertised and undeniable tart green tea nose. The body is more green tea than beer, with a bit too much dankness and tannins. Still, an interesting experiment that has promise. Recipe needs tweaking--to underbodied--would be better with a stronger wheat backbone or using a less pungent tea variety.
