2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden color. Smelled like a spice cabinet. Flavors of various herbs, bready. Interesting, but not something I'd drink often.
On draught. Light golden color with excellent head and very clear. The aroma has lavender and other flowery notes. The flavor has some green tea, lavender, honey, grass, and some sweetness. Excellent beer! legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2005
Slightly cloudy yellow; unidentifiable spices in the nose. 1st sip is sorta unexciting. Lot of really interesting tea flavors emerge- lavender, elderberry and jasmine. Tell tale "BE" yeast flavor for sure. HumuloneRed (765) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2005
Pours murky straw golden with a thin head and some lacing. Green tea and spicy nose.
Very herbal flavor. Thick in body and creamy in texure. I’m not big on hebal beers so this one is not for me. PorterPounder (8396) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Had on tap at the brewpub. Pours a light, murky golden with a thin, but sticky and clumpy white head. Aroma brings essence of green tea and some spice. Flavor has that same green tea flavor with some green grape notes and altogther "herbal" and flowery. Drinkable, but not in a beer-like nature. Mouthfeel is somewhat thick and it goes down easy. An interesting experiment, but not one of BE’s better ones. joet (2678) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - MAR 31, 2004
Wow, this is a fantastic medieval gruit. A sparkling golden. Lavender comes across as does other herbals -- fennel? basil? The beer underneath is held aloft by the herbals. It's slightly nutty and those patented Bitter End grain flavors. Very quaffable and fairly low alcohol (5 or so). Delicious and daring. Another far out and right on beer from Bitter End!

One of those beers you just have to question. The bartender did say that it was brewed with green tea. Very floral. AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - MAR 22, 2002
I don't know what to make of it either. Didn't the bartender say something about green tea? I felt like I was drinking a plant. Andrew196 (2051) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2002
Way too herbal and floral tasting. I didnt really know what to make of this beer.
