Wintergreen, tartness, sour, not bitter. And the best part of this beer, the wormwood!

Draft at Rustico. Poured a clear golden color with a small off-white head. Aroam was light tart apple, lime. Flavor had light sweetness, lime, with just a touch of wintergreen mint.

Poured a hazy amberish color with aromas of light fruit, followed by some light mint, with some light wood as well. Flavors started with some light fruit followed by some mint and a touch of wood, this is strange, but oddly i like it. Interesting and an odd duck for sure, but it worked for me.

Soft golden apple yellow pour with 2-3 fingers off white head. Honey in the nose big time. Honey in the flavor as well with apple skin and orange. Weird and kind of off putting.

750ml bottle pours toasted orange amber with a finger of head. Nose has some malt sweetness and dried fruit, herbal grass, spice, some bready notes, nose is not unpleasant but a bit strange. Palate is nicer with well balanced acidity, lime and citrus juice, grassy spice, herbs, some light toasted bread grain in the back, with soft touches of malt sweetness. Finish holds more of the palate notes with balanced acidity, light sweetness and grainy spice. Interesting in concept but not really a home run.

On tap at Jerry’s. Straw with some nice red tint. Clearly nicely carbonated. Small head that sticks. Lime on the nose with some citrus. Great taste, the lime really shines. Great. The mouthfeel is noticeably good.

On tap at Perennial, this was a strange one, pours a hazy golden amber with a really thin head, aroma is kind of fruity at first, but then mint comes through too and a bit of funk, the flavor has a wintergreen front end with a sour finish of lime and other fruits, kind of interesting, I get what they were going for, I think this is the result they wanted.

Bottle (thanks to goodbyeohio for sharing)... Poured golden, amber with a white head. The concept came through nicely in the flavor. Taste of key lime and mint with a nice, lively mouthfeel. I could probably drink plenty of this during warm weather. Some of the malty grain flavor came through nicely creating a pie-like crust flavor that worked nicely with the key lime. Finished with hints of yeast spices.
