Nicely balanced light body with refreshing finish. Herbs are present in the nose and mouth but pleasant and not overpowering. Great with a juicy burger.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a yellow color and a slightly hazy consistency. There was a two inch, foamy, long-lasting head. Great lacing.

S: An underwhelming aroma of malt and a distinct herbal quality.

T: Tasted of the aforementioned herbal quality, malt, light hops, and a grassy quality. A pretty thin flavor without much character. The herbal quality that's prevalent in gruits is not as pronounced as it should be.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a slick finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is not an overly interesting beer. It never takes off and ultimately comes off as flat.

22 ounce bottle - $7.99 at Lucky's Beverage World in Woodstock, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a near clear, deep yellow-hued body with a very tall, very frothed, whitish head. Heavy lace.

Smell: A light scaffolding of pale malts, with a very, very low sweetish accent. Thinned out touch of apricot, apple, and earthy, savory herbs.

Taste: Light pale malts, a bit doughy, and some rustic tons of wheat, oats. Low, light fruitiness hint a bit at lemon. Herbal melange giving perfumy, altogether savory accents of veggies and spice and softly minty weeds, as well as spruce-like spruce tips. Lingering wormwood spiciness persists into the aftertaste beyond the dry, lightly malty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A fine, twangy, decent gruit, if that's your cup of tea.
