Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Nose/taste of green tea, tropical fruit, caramel malt, resinous hops and pine. Solid tea and malt body. Finishes with tropical fruit and a little warming alcohol. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 18, 2011
A: The pour is a light orange color with a big white head.
S: The nose on this is just flat out unpleasant. There is a strong aroma of onions, vegetables, body odor, and feet. There is some tea, but it’s not very strong. A bit of grapefruit peel and some fake lemon.
T: There is a lot of bready malt flavor to the beer with a decent amount of hops. The hop flavors aren’t all that enjoyable, though. I pick up some lemons, onions, a mild pine, and just a bit of bitterness.
M: The body is medium with a medium to high carbonation.
O: I wanted to like this as it is for a good cause, but it just missed the mark. Dedollewaitor (16159) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2011

In simple terms, a pale lagery aroma. Retronasals remind me of alcohol. Body is bitter. There’s a nice tingle of hops. but the whole things says nothing to me.
Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas during the three day Stone Event, 16-18 september 2011. Slightly hazy yellow color, vast creamy white head. Smell fresh, indeed green tea, hops and bitter. Taste green tea as well (very nicely done!), bitter and hops. You don’t taste the 9,2%ABV. Good carbo, full body.

Bottle from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours hazy amber gold with a creamy/foamy near white head. Aroma is spicy herb over light caramel. Med+ body. Flavor is actually suggestive of tea, and not that black fermented stuff, but it is more spicy and floral/citrus. With a slight pause a herbal tea sort of flavor kicks in. There’s a lot going on - it’s like a revolving flavor palate. In the end I think it’s identifiably tea as the major flavor component. How strange this is.

Bottle poured a cloudy golden amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of green tea, lemon, bread and light straw. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of green tea, biscuit, lemon and light straw with a crisp dry modereatly bitter finish. Scopey (14736) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle thanks to Leighton at his pre-xmas extravaganza. It pours cloudy orange, with a thick off-white head. The nose is tangy orange fruit, pine and a faint hint of green tea. The taste is pine, resin, powdered matcha tea, tangy orange fruit (particularly mango), spice, resin and alcohol warmth, with a bitter-citric finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. An interesting and tasty brew. djd07 (14521) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle thanks to bleeng. Pours a copper gold with a small off white head that lasts awhile leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is wheat grass and floral hops. Medium mouthfeel with a bitter hop upfront with grass and light hop. A little funky with the alcohol present and a little too bitter.
