Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This BeerAdvocate.com/Dogfish Head collaboration is a Kombucha tea inspired brew flavored with organic lemon peel, organic Assam and Sencha teas then fermented by a cocktail of symbiotic organisms cross-pollinating each other. The result is a light bodied yet flavorful drink with a tart flavor somewhat similar to Belgian Lambic beers but also displaying hints of earthy tea.

Thanks for sharing, Bobby.

A: The pour is a relatively clear golden color with a small white head.

S: There is a light funkiness to the nose that is accompanied by lots of lemon zest, tea, and a little bit of tartness. Lightly musty and earthy, perhaps a touch of mushrooms and dirt.

T: The flavor is sort of bland and a bit watery. Lightly sour/tart with some tea and earth flavors. There is a little bit of lemon and lemon zest. Just a hint of green apple peel to it.

M: Light bodied with medium carbonation.

O: Sort of like a watered down version of the TEA/Veritas 008 from Lost Abbey.

Serving type: growler

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Murky orange-ish golden pour. Steady carbonation.

S - Citrus, lemon, and an herbal tea-like quality. Graininess and sweet pils.

T - Malt sweetness foremost, followed quickly with citrus and lemon rind. Tea-like quality is faint; not as strong as in nose. A bit of tartness balances the light malt sweetness. Very delicate flavors. Not unpleasant.

M - Light.

O - One of the better DFH brews I've had in a while. Very little "wild" here, but this is a really pleasant low gravity brew. Would definitely try it again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours 1 finger of white head. Left some splattered lace.

Color is a hazed bright golden orange.

Aroma: Light sour, green apples, and yeast. Some lemon citrus. Very light flavored.

Taste: Lemon citrus, yeast, faint sourness. There isn't really much here, but it is very clean.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and refreshing. Lighter bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends really clean.

Overall, a really easy drinking wild ale. Not much here, but it is very easy to drink a lot of this. This would be a great summer beer.

Growler. Poured into a tulip glass a slightly cloudy hazed light orange yellow color with a slight white head that collars around the glass. LIght lemon zest with just an ever so small amount of herbal aroma. The taste is nice and light, as is the mouthfeel. Starts with a light on the palate lemon sourness that stays around the entire time of your drink. A touch bit of blandness though. Overall, a light and refreshing beer. The tea flavor is rather lost on me though as the lemon pretty much dominates it.

4.22/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: hazy yellowish color with a 1" head.

Smell: light sourness, some earthiness, a bit of citrus and a very light tea aroma shows up late.

Taste: light grainy malt base with tart green apples, a hint of lemon zest, green tea, and a mild bitterness is wrapped in a mildly sour and earthy flavor.

Mouthfeel: lighter in body. Lightly crisp throughout with some dryness arriving late.

Overall: this is one of the few wild ales I have enjoyed that is much lower in alcohol and the flavors are well balanced. Easy to consume this beer. Lucky enough to have this at DFH in Rehoboth.

Serving type: on-tap
