Thanks again Brandon for sharing this long time want of mine.

The beer pours clearly with a thin white halo of white head. The nose presents huge herbal notes of Ginger, flowers, pencil eraser, and mint/white sage. It's held up really well. The taste is right on par with ample herbal flavors and a sweet, well carbonated finish. The mouthfeel is sweet and herbal, drinkable, with well rounded flavors. I must reiterate, this is definitely unexpected and impressive for being 2 years old. It's a very delicious beer that I would definitely try again.

Bottle: Poured a bright golden color ale with a medium size foamy white head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma is a very weird mix between some overly sweet notes with loads of flowers notes (kind alike hibiscus) with some oak and liquorish notes. The aroma was definitely too strong at first and I almost though I would have to drain pour this one. Taste is an interesting mix between some sweet malt notes with light candy like flavours and notes of flowers (not as strong as hibiscus but in the same realm) with light oak and liquor notes. Body is about average with an oily texture with medium carbonation and light warming alcohol notes. Well brewed with good level of complexity, a tad less sweetness would have been welcome and this one would be a good candidate for letting bread a bit before drinking.
