4.2/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

The beer pours a pink-brown with orange highlights. The beer pours with a nice big head of medium sized, pebble-like, creamy yellow bubbles. The head leaves a lacing of small splotches along the side of my glass. In body, the beer is hazy and dark, sort of like a tea, which makes sense since tea was added to this beer… On the nose, the beer smells of sweet honey with a grassy, herbal flourish to the nose. Orange peel bitters and a touch of mint also come into the nose, buoyed by faint, caramelly malt with a touch of Belgian esters. On the tongue, the beer tastes sweet with bitter, tannic touch on the sides and a slight tart pucker from the citrus. In flavor, the beer begins bitter with hops, but then opens into creamy honey with accents of citrus that build into bitter orange peel in the finish. Tannic green tea slides across the middle palate and the finish is sweet with honey, citrus, and a light minty herbal flavor. Candied caramel malt sits below everything else as a nice base to the beer. There is a light booziness to the beer, which blends well with the other flavors. Aftertaste is light and herbal. In the mouth, the beer feels on the heavy side of medium in body, with a prickly carbonation that works to scrub away the heavier sweetness in the beer, while not harming the tongue at all. The mouth is left with a light scrim of stickiness, dry and begging for more drink. Overall, this is a terrifically complex beer that marries its ingredients nicely. A true summer delight.
