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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small white head that dissipates quickly with little lacing. Aroma is wheat, coriander, orange peel. Flavor is light sweet, minimally bitter. I honestly would not place either sage or rye without the label, but there is a bit of a spiciness in the far finish. Light body, low carbonation. Better than I thought it was going to be.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Publix Supermarket, Kissimmee, Florida. This is a pale straw coloured beer with orange and sage flavours, earthy and spicy notes with a smooth, creamy vanilla finish. Very good but I doubt I could drink more than one of these in a session.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured cloudy medium golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up coriander and salt over soft bready notes. The flavor found bready notes and a touch of honey topped by coriander, salt, and tangy wheat.. finished salty with a kiss of earthy rye and more lime. Lighter-bodied with low-ish carbonation.. a rouch too salty for me, but otherwise very tasty.

Bottle. Slightly hazy dirty yellow pour with a smaller white head. Sage dominates the aroma and taste, and that’s fine with me. Fun beer!

Bottle. Light golden with small white head. Aroma of coriander and sage. Light body with citrus notes, coriander and spices. A little too herbal for my tastes.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow pour, standard white head. This was pretty rough around the edges. Dirty spice, watery malts, spent grain, not much hop flavor. Meh.
