3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy, even murky appearance, dull yellow hue, very nice cap of milky white foam.
Unusual aroma, very odd mixture of yeast, cream, and citrus scents, quite a funky affair, not sure how to place this queer duck, ...lemon cream pie, thatís pretty close...
Howís it taste, though? Very light on the tongue, fairly smooth, minor hop play, with citrus and cream still at large in the flavor. The "herbal" part of the name Iím trying to figure out...
Thin body, short finish, but it goes down with ease...I can pass a few of these past the lips, but after a while it would get annoying, I think.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was an interesting tasting brew. A silky mouthfeel with a hint of spice and herbs, yet still typical in a cream ale fashion of prevalent malted flavors with a touch of hops in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I was honestly expecting suck, but it didnít. Very light yellow, little head. Nose is indeed quite herbal. Flavor is, not surprisingly, herbal and creamy, bur doesnít overdo things. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Ginger ale-like aroma with a lemony, strawberry bent. Looks like ginger ale, too. Thin, zippy ginger ale flavor with lime rind bitterness. Very refreshing. I happen to be pretty thirsty right now so I know thatís affecting my rating, but Iíll look at it as if I got lucky in picking out a beer to rate tonight.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color is a pale yellow dilution with a thin white head that faded fast, leaves no lace. Smell is citrusy light and fresh with a wheat backing, but very soft. Taste is lightly crisp and smoothing with a subtle fruit of citrus, apples and wheat stand out mostly. Oats and malt barely detectable in the back. Lightly textured in smooth light medium bodyness, somewhat creamy as well but a bit uneven. Lighter fare, could be enjoyable for those who don't want too much taste.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours light cloudy gold with plenty of chunks. Fairly aggressive pour only yields one finger head that disappears quickly. I wasnít expecting the chunks,but here we go... Odd nose. Quite herbal: chamomile, lavender, black tea, cinnamon. Creamy on the palate. Flavor starts herbal and creamy leading to a mild hop bite and the quickly fades. Iíll give a provisional rating of 13 but it could go up or down on further ratings. Liked the nose but the rest...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale amber body. Minimal white dusty head, fades to nothing.
Honey sweet allspice-like aroma.
Sweet coughdrop-like spice. Again, more allspice. I know this is "herbal", but Iím picking up more of that sweet spiciness. A bit of dry/brown grassy hops. Some light tingly astringency in the hops in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Found this bottled at the Cashwise in Duluth, Minnesota. Hazy dark yellow pour with a thick, bubbly white head, not too much nose to speak of but the beer is laced with a berry sweetness, sassafrass and ginger. Interesting!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
flowery, medicine aroma. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow, thin head. Yeasty herbal flavour. Doesnít give you anything to bring you back for more.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.
