3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lemon and bergamot are notable in the rather inviting nose. Clear golden body topped by a thin white head that recedes to ring. Flavour is a pleasant blend of wheat beer with tea like tannins, bergamot and lemon. Not overtly sweet. Medium body with fair carbonation. Enjoyable but I’m not sure I could drink more than one. Half-pint glass. Just above fridge temperature. Can purchased at Liberty on Commercial.
From can, poured a fairly average amount of foamy head and goes away not long after and leaves a thin layer. Has a pretty cloudy, hazy amber appearance. Aromas of breads, toast, mild citrus, moslty lemon and a bit of spices. Flavours are comprised of a sweet and bitter lemon tang base along with the light tea flavour, most likely orange pekoe. Also some notes of resin type hops and spices with hints of breads, grains and nuts. Medium bodied with a slick creamy mouthfeel. Somewhat bitter and also has that tangy aftertaste. Pretty good light, easy drinking beer. Perfect in the summer. caitlin_m (14) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2017
Appearance- Pours a foggy honey colour with a finger width of foamy white dense head.
Smell- Citrus/lemon, hint of orange pekoe tea aroma, wheat.
Taste- Predominately wheat flavours with a touch of the orange pekoe playing a supporting role. Subtle hint of lemon and mild sweetness.
Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied with light carbonation. Very smooth.
Overall- A great refreshing beer for summer. Stoned99 (1547) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2016
Sample from can as part of autumn big clean up. Aroma: huge tea aroma mixed with lemon and flowers. App: cloudy orange, small white head leaving good lacing. Taste and palate: light body, soft carbonation, light sweetness, lemony, subtle bitter finish. Overall: a sample will be enough. I guess this beer is meant for those that don’t like beer and enjoy tea a lot. It’s not that bad but it’s really not my cup of tea. Ferris (15265) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2016
Draft - Lemon and iced tea. Clear gold with a rich white head. Some peppery teal leaf notes and malts with some old lemon. Not good. jrvstepien (4) - BRAZIL - SEP 6, 2016 does not count

Brun farge med lavt hvitt skum. Lukter av citrus og litt mettalisk. Smaker av sitron og ikke så veldig høyt karbonert. Derfor noe tam. Noe biitter avslutning. Vighals (3978) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2016
Lett tåkete brun med fingerhøyt hvitt skum. Lukter eple, sitron og trevirke. Lett. Mer sitron i smak enn i lukt. Lett sødme, mot honning og maltekstrakt. Lett, kortbitterhet avslutning. Cinctus (201) - - MAR 12, 2016
Absolutely terrible. Like run off beer from your local neighbourhood dive with a hint of Brisk added as if that would cover up the shameful piss peddled by Mill St. sulawang (1161) - - MAR 5, 2016
Visual: (seasonal sampler 6-pack). Pours cloudy marmalade orange with a small 1mm head, fast and slow bubbles here and there.
Nose: faint earl grey, barley malt (lvl-3)-pungency
Attack: crisp, background subdued sourness
Mid-palate: (lvl-4-sweetness), black tea, bergamot oil, lemon, wheat malt, tangy
Finish: soft wheat malt roughness, partially thin, cane sugar barley malt sweetness.
Summary: Tea and beer, a perfect match for me! This is my first tea infused beer and I’m quite liking the style. Although this particular tea beer doesn’t have extraordinary depth or length, the transitions are smooth and it has decent complexity.
