COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Innocent yet beguiling, this hazy golden brew appears to be a classic wittier with its bright notes of orange citrus & coriander, but there’s a bit more mischief up its sleeve. Behind its sweet exterior lies an intriguing blend of white sage and rye for an earthly, spicy, and thoroughly refreshing brew.

~Strong lemony aroma with perfumey spice and plenty of sage. Refreshing aroma. ~Pours a murky/cloudy orange color with lasting creamy white head. ~Lemony flavor with bready maltiness. Sage and spice throughout. ~Medium light bodied, medium high CO2, spicy lemony finish hat lingers. ~I quite like this beer. Very interesting. I never had anything with sage in it before. Refreshing and enjoyable.

Yellow pour, standard white head. This was pretty rough around the edges. Dirty spice, watery malts, spent grain, not much hop flavor. Meh.

Draft. White pepper, ginger, and rye malt aroma. Pale yellow with moderate head. Sweet spicy ginger. lemon, and light rye malt flavor. Nice - would have liked if the rye came out more.

Draft. Fruity ginger, white grape, and wheat malt aroma. Hazy yellow with a small white head. Spicy wheat malt and fruity ginger flavor. Light body, soft carbonation. I know they brewed this with white sage, but it tastes like ginger to me.

This beer was all about the sage. Sage dominated the aroma and the taste. Wasn’t horrible, but I wouldn’t run back and have a second one either.

ChainGangGuy (4400) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Part of the Samuel Adams Beers of Summer Variety 12-pack - $13.99 at Publix in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, light golden body with a smallish, white head.

Smell: Subtly sweet-scented aroma with faintly toasted bready malts. Sweetish citrus peel, lightly spicy hops, minor earthiness from the coriander, and, of course, the singular sage.

Taste: Lightly bready pale maltiness with a little honeyed sweetness sliding into the juicy orange peel character. Mild, spicy hop character, low bitterness given some aid from the carbonation and additional spicing. Coriander mingled in amongst the welcome white sage flavor. The sage lingers into the aftertaste beyond the crispish, drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Enjoyed more than I had anticipated. What can I say, I like a little sage from time to time.

Though I like witbier and I enjoy rye... this one just wasn’t what I was expecting. Good but could have used more rye in the mix.

Metalchopz (2371) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2013
Purchased in the States, part of their 2013 Beers of Summer variety pack. Pours a hazy golden colour with a frothy white head, good retention and thick foamy lace. Great fresh herbal aromas with sage, mint and hints of lemon. Disappears quickly though, leaving some citrus malt. Medium-light bodied with not much finish (attack). The herbal notes are milder in the taste. Again, citrus malt with the spices in the background. The sage barely makes an appearance in the finish, with the grain lingering mildly. I wish the flavours were a little punchier, but still, I like this experimental brew.

Concealer (827) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Pours a golden color with thin white head. Smells of lemon syrup, coriander, grain, and sage. Flavor is mostly sweet syrupy lemon at first with some orange peel and coriander. Subtle bitter notes in the middle.
