(Served in a stemmed strange)
A- The reddish-brown body has a slightly dense hazy and a lumpy bubbly beige head.
S- A patchouli hint turns to medicinal sage as it opens up.
T- The sage and rosemary flavors are strong with a band-aid hint and some herbal medicinal flavor lingers with a slight salty quality and some peppercorn spice.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz and no alcohol heat.
O- This beer reminds me of a ricola cough drop without the menthol. There is no malt flavor or hops to help cut all the sage and rosemary.

Tried this beer at the Midwest Brew Fest in Plainfield. It poured a clear orangish amber with white head that laced nicely. The smell was mostly potpurri (sp?) with hints of citrus. The taste brings in more of the same, with a big grassy flair. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, a decent beer that hit the mark....but I couln't drink more than a sample of it.

Draft pint at the Village Tap.
Slightly hazed, reddish copper orange, micro-sized trails of carbonation, that released in a swarm when swirled. Ever present foam that maintains a decent head and leaves concentric rings of lace on the opposite side of the glass.
Aroma seems a bit muted, slightly bready with a peppery yeast tang. Flavor is moderately bitter, big on the pepper and sage i'm guessing, not getting much rosemary sweet/savory qualities. It's earthy and bitter without any apparent hops, which is novel on it's own, but still not very distinct. Body is nice and fairly creamy, medium heft with ample carbonation. Very dry finish, grassy earthy and bitter. Overall not bad, something i'd drink again if I wanted a dry bitter APA.

A - A very weird shade of brown with tons of mini floaties throughout. Head was short lived just a 1/4 inch that fades to a mildly sticky lace ring.
S - Well it is quite grassy and I can smell some peppercorn along with some flowers? It's an interesting smell I didn't expect for a beer kind of smells like potpourri.
T - Very herbal and spices with an almost oaky finish. I really can't taste the hops over the flood of sage and peppercorns but it is mild enough and balanced to drink. Second sip it taste more like tea leaves and berries. This beer is all over the place!
M - Kind of watery, not very hoppy but overall light to medium on the palate.
Overall a very balanced herbal beer but with a name like "5 grass hoppy ale" I really expected more hops. Still it is quite good.

Bubble gum peppery almost like a cherry sour nose. Be a fun recipe with some fresh wet hops imparting some of those resins. Deep amber color with some spice in the flavor. Pepper and Berry-ish. Sage? Sure. The pepper to me is more part of it. Junipers is on the back and this might be a real good cool evening summer beer. Bit thick on the after taste. Not bitter. But, lingering. Good beer for grilled meat. Served at 55f.

Pour is light brown, orange hue. Light, almost white head. Nice lacing develops.
Nose is rather sharp - sage jumps right out. Reading on the label there was sage surprised me, the nose confirms it's presence. Decent entry gives way to a grassy flavor that quickly becomes dominated by the spices. Yes it is floral, but the sage takes over way too much. I'm struggling with this beer - I remember a pizza beer from several years ago contract brewed at Sprecher. I found that more appealing because I like oregano and basil. Sage in a lighter beer - just too much. Somewhere, a german brewer is rolling over in his grave.
I got a hint of the juniper - would prefer more of that and tone down the sage.
