Sampled at the brewpub, RBSG 2005 cider tour aftermath. Hazy dark amber, thick lace and lasting creamy head...mint, juniper and a touch of caramel in the sweet enveloping aroma...beautiful milky-creamy body, soft vanilla, creme de menthe, caramel swirling through the lovely malt, little if any hops. Could be a bit too sweet and sticky..but Im giving it the benefit of the doubt, and hope you will too.

Juniper and rye dominate a sweet minty aroma. Clear, deep copper coloured body with low but lasting white head that laces nicely. Mint figures prominently in the very very sweet, malty flavour. Medium body with fair carbonation. Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub with the RBSG05 Sunday gang.

07.10.05 Tap at brewpub, RBSG tour. Dark amber copper with tall white head, rocky, brainy; sheets of thick lace. Aroma is spicy ginger, corriander, mint, tobacco leaves (pouch). Fantastci, light fresh, tons of herbs. Some fruit, white grapse maybe. So soft, the body, and just maybe lacking in eff. Mint comes through more and more, building with temp. The cooling is a very unusual effect.

Oakes (16949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2005
Like mint and juniper...I think it would make a great sauce for venison. As for beer, lets take a look. Golden-amber colour. Strong peppermint aroma (not mint, thats a different plant). Very herbal character. Quite sweet, minty, punctuated with juniper. The elements are there, and are reasonably well-integrated aside from perhaps needing more hop. I just wasnt compelled. They should add some venison to the keg.

SpringsLicker (3586) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 17, 2005
RBSG on draught at the brewpub This produced a frothy head over an orage/gold body. Floral spice and mint accompany fruit plate and melon in the aroma. Fruity with a mint finish. Very interesting and different beer from a brewers perspective.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Pours a clear bronze with a nicely-lacing white head. Lightly malty, unique minty aroma has some faintly floral hops and juniper. Body is full and malty with an enjoyable, subtle minty flavor and a sticky, semi-bitter finish. A well-brewed beer, but Im not quite sure I like the mint character. I think the mint would work better with a chocolatey, sweet or imperial stout.

Superbe couleur orange, dapparence semi opaque et parsem dune bonne quantit de mousse blanche concasse adhrant pleinement la paroi du verre. Armes de menthes fraches ainsi que de quelques autres composantes herbals restant en arrire-plan. La menthe reste bien dose et, confre quelques accents de gomme la menthe. En bouche, le seigle ne gote pas beaucoup mais contribue grandement au corps. Les flaveurs type menthol restent toujours prsente et sont plutt dsaltrantes et sont construites sur une bonne base de malt la qualit de doux caramel. Corps dpaisseur moyenne, fine carbonatation, alcool restant toujours bien dissimul. Un bel quilibre! En ft, la brasserie, le 25 Juin 2005.

Orange-amber hue, thin foamy head, big accent of mint flowers, with a fruity side of juniper, blueberry, and herbs aromas follow through on a medium-bodied palate with a juniper, blueberry, peppermint candy, minty leaves, also kind of botanical leafy accent, crystal malt in a bitterness finish.
