3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at CK. Sounds like a Sam Caligione beer. Pours low haze golden. A bit murky/dirty. Weak head formation. Nose is powerful spice medley with heavy potpourri, sea salt, lavender, rose pedals, flower pollen....even some dill and even dill pickle. Taste is powerful perfume, flower, pollen, lilac, lavender. Spicy rosemary and rose water. Big white pepper and sage. I like it, but I love these types of mega herb garden beers. Unique, dry, fun, enjoyable. But if you hate lavender perfume or dill pickle, stay away.

On tap at Lost Abbey. Listed as simply Repoterroir Session Lager. Pours with a crystal clear yellow hued body with a lasting white head. Aromas are hoppy, floral, lightly spicy, starchy, crackery malt, clean yeast wise, and a bit of spicy wood/cedar like notes. Flavors are malty, bready, floral, light peppery (pepper corn) character, flowers, cantaloupe like fruit notes. Lively bubbles, dry, light chamomile tea herbal thing going on. Medium bodied. Tasty for such a strange group of ingredients.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at GABF. This was an odd beer. Pours a nice looking gold with a fluffy head, fine bubbles. Nose is peculiar. Odd mix of floral, licorice & mint with a malty backbone. On tasting, it’s more of this mishmash. Earthy and dry, but the spices really clash with one another. Not my bag.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Lost Abbey. Golden-yellow in color with a one-finger white head. The aroma has cucumber, carrot, and greens. This is weird. Cucumber and carrot. The flavor is a lot like a garden salad. Cucumber dominates along with carrot and herbs. Some salad greens, maybe romaine lettuce. Not much else. Medium-bodied with average carbonation. Oddly refreshing actually. Unique at least.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A: The beer pours a pale yellow color with a tall white head.
S: A really funky/strange aroma. Strong notes of apple along with a very herbal, almost sage, aroma. Lots of mint, a bit of yeast, and a weird spicy and woody note.
T: Just weird. Again, lots of apples. But this time, they’re followed by metal. Very woody, which shouldn’t be surprising, I guess. Some candied sage and mint. Overall heavily herbal with lots of perfume type flavors.
M: Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation.
O: This was just bad. No desire to ever have this, or anything like it, again.

Draft at Lost Abbey with Andrew, Brendan and the big boy daddy dad Bachelor, Dallas. Pours a light hazy lime body. Aroma is cucumber and lemongrass. Mouthfeel is thin and soft with notes of cucumber, pickles, grass, lemon and lime. Incredibly unique brew. Wow, nothing like it.
