3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a light golden color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of coriander and sage is quite dominant with light sweet wheat malt notes also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by sage with quite a bit of coriander, light orange peel and light wheat malt with some light residual sugar notes. Body is light with good carbonation. Quite enjoyed the spice mix but a fuller malt profile would have also been beneficial.

Appearance: Pours a clear gold.
Aroma: Aroma of lots of sage, faint coriander.
Taste: Wheat, orange, lots of sage, faint rye.

Summary: The sage in this beer is a bit overpowering. The mouth feel is nice, and I get the intent to be different.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Ok this beer has more than a hint of sage. I think thats the soapy taste people are getting from this. BUT if you pair it right with say a roast chicken and corn on the cob it could be a good brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 12oz. An unclear, golden body with a dense, two-finger off-white head. Some lacings. The aroma is rather soapy, in a ginger-like way. Wheat, coriander and citrus peel, orange. Ok, reading the commercial description, I see there’s white sage in it too, that most definitely makes sense. Medium body, lightly sweetish, with a nice carbonation level. Spices. citrus and wheat in the flavor, some bitterness kicking in towards the end. A quite decent beer, but I can’t say I really appreciate the experimentation, it is too spiced I think. 130819
