This one has been intriguing me for a while now. I love Wasabi, so a brew with a hint of wasabi from the red Rosabi tree, how could I not go for it.

This poured like a golden tan ale with a medium semi-white creamy head. There was nothing to really distinguish from the nose, so I went right in for the sip. The taste was round and soft, semi-big, but no real wasabi flavors. It wasnt until after the beer was down, did I find a trace of wasabi. Nothing hot or spicy, but a nice grainy dryness you sometimes get from wasabi made from powder.

The aftertaste stayed for a while and it was real pleasant. A real nice surprise from the brewery that never stops surprising.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

This was an attractive beer. In a snifter it was a strikingly clear cherry amber color. There was a thick tan head that receded quickly, leaving a bit of lace.

Aroma was very herbal and earthy. Peppery in the nose. A bit of sweet fruit.

Herbal taste (? oregano). There was some late, subtle heat that I assumed was the wasabi. A little fruity, but in the background.

Medium-bodied and spicy.

I liked this beer a lot; I see I'm in the minority on this issue.
