pours a cloudy yellow color. tea flavors don’t really show up until the end and by the point it isn’t strong enough. very syrupy and sweet. could use some extra carbonation or tartness. redlight (2325) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Floral, artichokes, olives, tea in the aroma. Pours cloudy blonde with a white head. Funky, tea, floral, slightly hoppy, with a slight tartness, green tea aftertaste. Very unique. Stew41 (2117) - Phuket, THAILAND - MAY 11, 2008
This tea based beer is a first for me. Light lemon /orange in colour; not disimilar to a German wheat beer. Soft of nose of mild sweet malts but not much else. Palate shows a little more; slightly honeyed malts giving way to a clear cold tea flavour with mild bitterness. The weiss flavours also hang around. Quite bland on one hand but points for being different. (EuR 8 from Bier & Fud, Rome). Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2008
From Belmont Station in Portland, OR...Poured a light mustard orange murky hue with a soft whitish bubbly thin head. Nose of mildly dull citrus notes and a watery fruits. Low carbonation levels no pop when uncapping and thin on the tongue. Finished a little disappointingly drab. Somehow it remained on the back of the tongue a quasi cloying manner. Eh.

Courtesy PhillyBeer2112. Pours an interesting looking dark yellow color with bits of whitish head. Aroma of green olive/caper brine, which I didn’t dig at all. Got less appealing as I drank on. Light carbonation, moderately thick body for the ABV. Mild taste - slightly sweet, a tad funky, a bit of citrus. The finish yields some hints of what is in the aroma - a little saltiness and vinegar. An odd and not entirely pleasant brew.

2008 Bottle - Pours an opaque tan, little head, bitter aroma with slight tea, taste is utterly bland, slightly sours and with the slightest nuance of tea flavour. When I went back for the bottom third, all the yeast mud went into my glass, which was okay because apparently that is where the flavour hides. Even so, after paying $8, I felt like I was bent over.... DragonStout (1418) - Groveport, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2008
Bottle shared with Phillybeer at Redlight, thanx guys.Pours a cloudy yellow color with a nice thin lacing that stuck around for the whole ride.The nose is of citrus, olives and some funk.Flavor was thin, citrus, herbs and olives with a slight hint of artichoke.Definately worth revisiting.The finish was light and refreshing.I would say this is one of the more stranger beers I have had.Solid.

Aroma -the aroma is light and it’s probably supposed to be. It is sort of the only thing going on at all. It has a little floral, honey, barnyard yeast about it.
Appearance - the body color is a orange-yellowish color, the liquid very cloudy with bits of sediment present. There was no real head to speak of, and the little bit there is a super tiny halo (white)
Taste - the taste is slightly sour, very light at that. There is a slight tang to it.
Palate - the body is light, the texture thin, the carbonation is average in the mouth, and the finish short sort of tanginess.
This beer was a real let down. Nothing going on here, wish I could report more, just wasn’t there. JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Very unpronounced with a slight tea flavor that sparks a one dimensional bitter note heavily layered under some malt, water, citrus, and wheat. The finish isn’t bad with some nice carbonation and dryness. cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Draft @ redlight redlight. Pours a hazy gold with a nice white head, leaves a little lacing on the glass. Light grassy, slight citrus and lemony aroma, with a some earthy hops. In flavor, a soft lemon and mild earthy must sit a top toasted malts and a light spice. Tea comes through most in the subtle tannic dry finish. Lush carbonation. Overall, decent saison, restrained and subtle.
