1st Vaasa CS/ES beer session (thanks MMM!). Slightly hazy honeyish golden colour with not too much head. Aroma is fruity, a bit wooden and also quite malty. Flavour is slightly fruity, some malts, mild grassyness as well. Some slight dryness. I had waited for something more dry with a tealeaf beer, but this works surprisingly refreshing.
Bottle ay home ... HUGE thanks to Spacecoyote for this baby...Bottle opened with a bang... but it didnt gush ... NICE opaque yellow orange ... with big bubbly white head ...yeasty fruity hop nose ... bit carbonated up front but behind that is a rich complex body ... lots of fresh clean lemon ... peach and apricot .... light hint of maybe jasmine ... floral... little bready ... a great summer refreshing beer (and its a nice day in scotland ... Supped with Dinner in the Garden )... other than a bit heavy on carbonation ... nice Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2008
Thick opaqueness. Light blonde. Complex aroma of strawlike malts, tea. Soft malt, tea, slightly floral. Slightly tannic at the back, but that’s quite minimal, maybe the least of any tea beer I’ve had. Balanced, refreshing, very drinkable. jtclockwork (16443) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours apricot. Nose of peel, flowers, tea and yeast. Taste of faint orange peel, tea, lemongrass and yeast. Lightish body. bhensonb (15088) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Bottle from John’s Marketplace in Portland, OR. Pours hazy peach with some coarse white bubbles. Something of an apricot/peach aroma. Medium body with mild, very mild, carbonation. Flavor is smooth mild malt, lightly fruity with a decent bittering. Could be tea. Could be a grassy hop. Very subdued, but rather tasty. Interesting.

A hazed golden ale with a thick frothy light mocha head. In aroma, nice herbaceous malt with light honey and green tea, little lemon touches. In mouth, a nice smooth beer with grainy and honey malt and smooth tea character, decent. 2.99$ at Total Wine Summerlin, 1 month after buying. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2009
(750ml bottle) Pours a hazy pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, florals, toasted grain, and earthiness. Flavor of lemon, pepper, floral, and grass. hopscotch (11048) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2008
Bottle... Cloudy straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent, fat-bubbled retention. The aroma offers notes of coriander, white pepper and lemon. I dislike coriander so much that I would have preferred the olive/vinegar/caper aroma sensed by those who sampled and rated this brew before me. Alas, none of that in my bottle. Light to medium-bodied with a very creamy mouthfeel and ticklish carbonation. The flavor is dominated by coriander spiciness with moderate pale grain sweetness and light pungency. Crisp, spicy, lightly acidic finish. Interesting, but spendy, and not really my cup of Tè. DocLock (10651) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle from State Line. Pours turbid gold with 1-finger white head. Nose is bready pale malt, orange zest, lime, yeasty spice, and sourdough pretzels fresh out of the oven. Tastes dry, floral, spicy, orange zesty, with a solid amount of hops and some mild finishing tannins. Very unique.

Tap at OTH.
Interesting concept that the one of using 50% tea leaves with 50% hops. Italian beer landscape is quickly becoming very interesting and tasty.
Pours hazy amber/orange with white head.
Aroma is lightly hoppy, plenty of herbal freshness and some faint sweet notes.
Taste, hoppy, there is a definite light leafy presence. Though weak in alcohol, the mouthfeel is very smooth with a light sour finish of peach*apricot with a bitter mix of citrus fruits.
