Tried this one after the Revolutionary Rye and guess what? Just as bad as that one. I guess this was a second attempt at this beer with a new name, but it sure didn't improve.

Will never seek out, purchase, or drink again.

A- not even close to "white".. Hazed amber with a thin white head. No Belgian rockiness, some wispy lace. Rye obviously discoloration the beer.

S- aroma is dominated by sage. Like green walnuts. Some lemon and crackery wheat and a touch of the spiciness.

T- wtf sage overload. It just doesn't work for me. The sage has a medicinal bitterness of its own and leaves a green resinous, bruised walnut husk aftertaste. Some rye spiciness is appreciated but the sage ruins it.

MF- thin body with no structure but ample numbing carbonation.

D- I don't know what the hell is going on with this one. Way too heavy handed with the sage. Maybe if the formula was actually a witbier with just a hint of the herb then MAYBE. This one is all out of whack.
