UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 Bottle courtesy of Prufrock.
Light tan pour. White head. Lovely aroma. Gin forward, herbs, spearmint. Lemon. Tart clean flavor. White grape and pine. Gin again. I love this. Reminds me of something that ale apothecary would do. Once beastie tells me they’re there, I can taste the peach skins. Delightful.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. Clear, nearly orange pour with offwhite head. Aroma is fantastic. Specially herbal indeed - gin, medicinal, throat lozenge, pear/tropical fruit juice. Reminds me a lot of ale apothecary stuff. Taste is nice as well. Tart, herbal, light cereal in the finish (along with a hint of pickle juice?). Slick texture, medium body, short crisp finish. Overall: this is great. Flavorful, complex, unique, easy to drink but also invites savoring. Want moar.

Bottle thanks to Nick. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with small off white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is lemon, oak, funk, gin. Thin mouthfeel with tart lemon, light funk, gin with light dry finish. Very nice.

Damn, this beer kicked ass. Pours a hazy dull pale golden color with a finger of white fizzy foam. Tons of juniper, spruce, wet wood, ginger ale, rosemary, pinot noir, some round stonefruit hints in the background. Absolutely delicious !

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Hazy golden pour with a small, creamy, white head that dissipates faster than you can say “quick.” The aroma is restrained, but offers a nice marriage of oak and light funk – not real herbal. Medium-bodied with Key West carbonation. The flavor is medium-sour and bready. Not all that herbal here either. Finishes tart, yeasty, and then bone-dry. Many thanks to landhoney for sharing this one with the entire South Florida Brew Crew!

Super botanical nose. Tons of gin herbal notes juniper? Peach, funky yeast notes a little tart a little winey. Pours hazy golden orange white ring of foam. Tart peachy gin wine barrel there's a lot going on here. Lingering tang and fruit. Nice carbonation. A little funky lingering yeast. Cool beer.
