look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

750 ml bottle with no freshness date. Poured into a wine glass

Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange color with 1+ finger of an off-white head that dissipates to a thin coating and medium collar. Body is lightly hazy with light visible carbonation and some fine sediment.

Smell: Huge aroma of spices and herbs. Oregano, maybe some basil, mint and some peppery yeast. Weird.

Taste: Follows the aroma almost exactly. Lots of oregano as well as a strong general herb/spice character. Theres a mild funkiness and a light malt character in there as well, but they're overwhelmed by the herbs/spices.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and soft mouthfeel with medium carbonation. 8% ABV is hidden well.

Overall: Weird. Very weird. Very strong herb and spice character, which is tasty, but given how overpowering it is, it makes it difficult to drink more than a few ounces (and a bit tough to rate as well).

Pours a beautiful golden clear color. Smells earthy, herbal, slight booze, band aid. The dominant tastes are sage and oregano. High carbonation, dry finish. The sage and oregano linger for a while as does the plastic band aid taste. I know that sounds disgusting, but it works. I would not suggest drinking the whole bottle alone. The taste is best in small doses.
