3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted at Lost Abbey on tap. Clear golden in color with a thin white head. Stick your nose in this beer and you feel like you are at the beach on a windy day. Pronounced beach wood aromas flow. Smells more like Atlantic wood to me. Light bodied brew but flavors were quite complex that melded well together. Flavors were of honey, mint, earthiness, and grass. The finish is not sweet and some what dry. Very tasty unique beer.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours very slightly hazy straw yellow with white head on tap at Avery. Very interesting aroma with some herbal notes of mint, dill, rosemary, sage, some ginger, touch of other vegetal and very slight honey notes. Weird, and the taste isn’t much better, with a weird herbal minty quality, some slight ginger, some biscuit notes, maybe a touch of honey, but really dominated by a very odd herbal and ginger combination.

Tap @ Avery. Clear golden yellow appearance with a white head. Ginger, herbal, minty aroma. Pretty herbal, ginger, minty, light honey, light malty flavor. Easy drinking but nothing too exciting. Meh.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
At lost abbey. Pale gold pour. Aroma is cucumber salad which is insane. Taste is crisp and clean and heavily cucumber with slight vinegar to it. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the Lost Abbey tasting room. Clear pale yellow pour with a small white head, very pissy looking. Grain, carrot, beet, vegetable garden, definite mint bouncing around in the background, and earthy. Unique for sure, but a taster glass of it is enough for me.
