COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
starting with a base of German wheat & pale malts this crisp slightly hazy foundation was then accented with a blend of Sterling & Citra hops providing a intricate blend of herbal grass & tangerine citrus flavors and aroma. to pull this all together and to complete the ’cleansing’ aspect of my vision i gently finished the ale off with a touch of white sage, lending a mild earthy spice character to the blend. of course let’s not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

Had this on cask. Poured hazy orange with no head. Smelled of hops, mainly citrus and it had some herbal notes. Tasted surprisingly bitter and the herbal component shined through. This would probably impressed me more cold.

Cybercat (3333) - Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Comes out of the bottle a slightly hazy, pretty solar yellow with a nice thick white head. Malty aroma has a decided overtone of sage - oh yes, you can smell that, and it makes this beer all the more appealing! OK, on to tasting - yummy! Malty, fruity, earthy, with that sage overtone that makes it distinctive. Notes of banana and pear enhance the sweetness without making it too sweet. I do not like beer that is over-sweet! Body is about average, but it is fairly fizzy and leaves a nice malty finish with an overtone of that sage. Get it whilst thou canst!

skortila (4516) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2011
@ ACBF 2011. The aroma is spicy en veggie. Hazy, yellow coloured beer with a white head. The taste is light bitter, bit sweet, has some citric sourness, malts, spice. Interesting.

EinStein (52) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Poured from a 750 ml into a tulip. Pours a nice golden color with a big pillowy head. Aroma is primarily grassy and floral with hints of orange and some other citrus, decent smelling. The floral hops come to the front in the taste, supported by grassy and orangey notes. This one is relatively light and crisp and pretty refreshing. A little overcarbonated, which detracts from the floral and citrus in the taste. Overall, a drinkable and refreshing beer, but not outstanding.

KyotoLefty (6465) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 1, 2011
Bomber. Ginger and spice nose, warm wheat. Very spicy, interesting, sage, too much herbs. Orange and cloudy with lace. Big, sweet, fruity and herbal flavor with sage, herbal bitterness, also a tart edge and a bit of banana. Nice fruit. Finish is a bit dull. Interesting.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 28, 2011
750ml bottle from ksurkin. Pours a hazy orange with a thick, foamy, long lasting, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, oranges, herbal tea and honey. Flavor of sweet honey malt, tart Belgian yeast and a zesty citrus bitterness. Light body with lively carbonation and a frothy mouth feel. This is a nice, easy drinking beer, the spices are a bit strong for my palate but it is still enjoyable.

phaleslu (6517) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2011
750 ml bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a hazy, deep golden color with a big, fizzy eggshell white head that settles quickly into a lasting thin cap. A little foam came out of the cap upon opening, but not a gusher. Aroma of basement funk, sage, spice, floral hops, hay, white bread, tropical fruits, and candi sugar. Flavor of sage, spices, pepper, pale malts, tropical fruits, wheat, crackers, and straw. Medium-bodied, with a spicy, bubbly mouthfeel and high carbonation. Not an easy drinker- a little harsh on the palate- and I generally like a wit that I can savor a little longer. But otherwise a really nice wit.

Kristall-König (2244) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2011
Geruch süßlich, kräuterig und gewürzig nach Salbei, etwas hefig. Süßlich-gewürzter Start. Mitte herber, erinnert an Cassis mit Salbeieinflüssen. Herb-trocken und leicht säuerlich abschließend. Gut - ziemlich abgefahren.

It doesn’t get much more earthy than this. This brewer has balls and imagination. I can think of so many places, situations and pairings where this beer would be magnificent. It’s really a crime to drink this beer alone and not paired with anything. The sage is brilliant. Gourmet. I would like a little richer body. Truly artistic.
