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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.4 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.

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.

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.
