Beautiful light amber color, hazy; medium sized head, although there was a high pressure in the bottle. The aroma is interesting, a bit puckery; there is some malt, light fruitiness, very light herbs and cabbage. Lean body, but round mouthfeel; there is some residual sweetness that makes it pleasant to drink, with light malt flavor and sage; there is also a light fruity touch (peaches). Correct bitterness. Very well balanced and still fresh.

Cloudy amber beer. Soft to semi dry palate. Moderate carbonation. Wheaty malt with some orangey hop that doesnt bite at all. A little herb bitterness underlying. Finishes soft and dry. Not bad.

Bottle. [thanks CCskou]
Pours clear amber with a nice, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is malty, light herbal, has some white peppers and a fine, light sweet caramel base. Medium carbonation, good dry and creamy palate. Flavour is rather sweet and malty, some caramel, light yeast and a fair herbal touch. Good dry and bitter finish. Okay.

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma has notes of fruit, malt, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of phenols, malt, caramel, and straw, leading to a dry phenolic finish.

Slick texture. Soft to average carbonation. Medium sweet, fruit, peach, grain, and slight herb finish.

750 from Star Grocery in Berkeley, CA. Opens with a pop, and it gushes. Pour is hazy, amber ripe stone fruity with a foamy head that quickly leaves. Strong ripe light stone fruit aromas. Near full in body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is ripe light stone fruit with some yeastiness. But the main impact is near ripe peach or apricot. The flavor is lush and fruity. Im not getting sage. But this is one fantasic tasting ale. Even more tasty than the Demon Hunter.
