3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Belmont Station, Portland. Pours a medium brown, lively mouthfeel. Gin and tea really well-balanced, really nice, lots of subtlety, just a hint of tartness. Finish is long and slightly oaky, barrels show up well.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ The Beeramongers... This at least year old vintage ken pour deep, opaque brown with a moderate forming, l light tan head. Nose had lemon peel and spruce. I think with the extended aging the tea seamed to fade because I didn’t get much. Instead I was treated with a solid yet balanced tartness that embraced lemon peel, wood, and gin. Quite lovely and refreshing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the Green Dragon. Pours an opaque dark brown with no head, lace, or bubbles. Big sweet candied lemon and sprucey/juniper nose. Creamy, sticky flat body. Candied lemon and cloying sweet juniper on the mid palate with a sticky finish. Awesome experimental idea that came out a little heavy-handed.
