3.25/5 rDev -15.1%
Poured from a bottle into a Samuel Adams Boston Lager pint glass. Bought as a single for $2.29
A - Clear straw color. Not much head or lacing with this beer
S - Tangy, citrus smell. Maybe a hint of spices and mint
T - Tastes herbal/spicey. Bitter aftertaste
M - On the high end with carbonation, but felt pretty light on the tongue. Went down smoothly
Overall, I thought this was a decent beer. I'm a big fan of Dog Fish Head Brewery and saw this as a single so I picked it up. I wouldn't purchase it again (as I can see they don't make it anymore), but I'm glad I picked up this single.

3.8/5 rDev -0.8%
Light orange or dark yellow in color. Lovely smell To it with some yeast and banana coming through. Malty and gritty condensation making for a scratchy and well carbonated mouth feel. Taste is very citrusy. Reminds me of allagash's saisons but also has the coriander and some zest like Hennepin. Overall tasty beer and cool Concept from three unique breweries on both coasts. Which I could compare to the stone version. Had at bier baron tavern DuPont Washington, D.C.

3.7/5 rDev -3.4%
Twelve once bottle no date but I assume it is pretty old.
The pour was a light straw color with a bit of haze. About a finger of head that backed down to a modest ring, good amount of lacing. Head persisted to the very end.
Aroma was vaguely fruity, some mixture of herbal notes but nothing distinctive. Almost like an herbal cough drop - not unpleasantly medicinal, just reminiscent of that smell. Maybe clove, rosemary, licorice. A little bready malt/sweet smell.
Taste was a smooth mixture of herbs (rosemary, fennel), bitter lemon citrus, hints of apple and pear. Slight acidic bite, some sweetness. Definite anise aftertaste. Heavy bitter component in the middle that fades. Some lively peppery notes. Nothing jumps out as an overwhelming taste component. Thought it had a lot going on but calmly so.
Mouthfeel was pretty lively. Well carbonated, spicy tingle on the finish. Cooling sensation like mint or menthol, maybe from whatever brings the anisette-type flavor? Dry and crisp.
I was surprised that this was so very drinkable. I have had the bottle at least a year. Very blended flavors. Alcohol well hidden, sneaks up. Pleasant drinking, nice beer.
