Very interesting. The beer pours a hazy yellow with a light head. The smell was easily my favorite part of the beer. It feels like you are directly smelling parsley and thyme. Very big notes from the earthy herbs. The taste was a little lack-luster though with big herb tastes in the beginning but I felt the ending wasn't as good and the sour taste at the end, while enjoyable, didn't leave a great lingering taste. This was a nice beer to try and appreciate the inventive style of Dogfish, but I don't know if I need more than one.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 6, 2014.

The pour is pale yellow with a white fizzy head and busy carbonation. Good clarity.

It smells like I am standing by my herb garden during peak season. Rosemary and sage are the biggest herbal notes I pick up with the parsley and thyme a bit more reserved. Also some toasted malts but they are blown away by the herbs.

Light body.

The taste is full of herbal notes with a tart, almost sour bite at the finish.
