Reviewed from notes.

Pours a moderate amber color with a thin off-white head and a bit of a collar. The nose is pretty spiced-up, with quite a bit of oak as well as some earthy notes and a bit of herbal tea. Mild malty sweetness in the background. The flavor has a lot of spice as well. Too much, even for a gruit. Moderate oak presence throughout. Light to medium body with a bit of tannin. Pretty decent, but a bit too far out there. I did like the oak touch.
