RATINGS: 46   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.08/5   EST. CALORIES: 180   ABV: 6%
A hopless brew with a light, yet slightly sweet, spicy body. Brewed with black tea and a hint of tangerine zest and rye, the aromatic flavor will please beer and wine lovers alike. Definitely something you must try.

6pk cans; Big aroma, orange, lemon peel, black tea; no head, undercarbed; Note to self: Hop bitter and tannic bitter are not the same...not sure what I expected from a beer without hops, but eek this was hard to finish; and again very under carbonated.

[24/12/15] Bottle from Clackamas Town Center: Hazy orange body with medium head. Nose is malty, sweet. Taste is okay, some spices, but quite nondescript. Quite thin in the texture.

Rating #1624 - #CBC2015 Beer 8 - Welcome Reception - I remember this vividly as this was the only booth at the show that looked like it was ready to be infield at Nascar - so far most of my beer servings had been from weird bearded dudes from Portland - this booth had can stacks that were 10-15 deep, and the hottest women Ive ever seen at a beer show behind it. She was bouncing up and down telling me about this zero hop brew. At first impression, Im giving this brewery almost zero cred, and expecting very little - but the black tea flavours actually work really well here, light peachy, tangerine sweetness. Weird.

Even honey brown color. Aroma is sweet malt, orange peel and soap. Taste is like a light apple juice with a faint vomity edge and almost no carbonation. $1.50 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can from 7/1/2015. Think a friend brought it over and I lost it in the back of the fridge. Anyway, bottoms up! Hazy orange pour with no head. Really no carb. Aroma has some citrus, but is also kinda cheesy. Very flat mouthfeel. More light citrus in the flavor, but man this needs carbonation.

maekchu (3816) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 20, 2015
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Spice and candied fruit nose, also some butterscotch and dark tea. Deep amber color, thin filmy head. Sweet fruit initial, some mild citrus, and the sweetness returns. It all slithers away slowy. Sweet, but all very light. Unusual,w ith the tea notes. Not totally unpleasant.

1 Aug 2015, bottle. orange, hazy, no head. It looked more like juice than beer when poured. nose is straw malt, tea, and orange peel. Med/thin body and mildly fizzy. tastes like orange peel tea. It is sweet with some nice spices, but it is more tea than beer. meh.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5056) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 7, 2015
Can from CBB, looks like the same bad batch as KL. An orange copper pour with no head beyond the first microsecond after pouring. Tangerine and buttery caramel popcorn doesnt make for an inviting aroma. The taste is sour candied caramel with a tangerine sweetness, some yoghurt and a slick oily mouthfeel. I am guessing this suffered MASSIVELY in transit. Better from the can but no real tea element to it at all. FAIL. My first from Gilgamesh was a waste of money... also my first drain pour from the US in awhile, cloyingly sweet...
