Pours straw gold, mild cloudiness, moderate white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma has a large amount of herbs to it, obviously in large part to the herb additions, though it melds nicely together with a light farmhouse funk and citric hop character. The sage, thyme, and rosemary all have a good presence but it all comes together fairly indistinctly. The flavor starts off with a large amount of geranium notes with grapefruit acidity and mild farmhouse funk and thyme, light sage. Sharp herbal bitterness in the middle and end, dry finish with mild farmhouse. Not sure if the herbs are bringing the bitterness up here or what, but it is a bit astringent on the finish, overly dry and really reduces the refreshment/drinkability factor. Light to medium bodied with forceful carbonation. The smell probably pleases me most here, I want to like it more than I do, the finish really brings down the drinkability for me.
