This is a fun beer. Poured from the can into a nonic pint. Bright golden color, crystal clear. The green tea is a really subtle accent, and it actually complements the natural flavor of the wit nicely. It's a very sweet beer, with a slightly thicker mouthfeel than I expect in this style, but I liked it.
Would not guess this was a 9%, alcohol is hidden nicely. FWIW, my wife actually liked the taste she had of it, most beers get the yuck face.

My second tea infused beer and I do enjoy it. Though the reason I bought it was because Godzilla is on the can, and I love Godzilla.

The first time I had it I didn't really like the taste, it was when i had it the second time that it felt smoother and not soo bitter.

One of my favorites. It's definitely weird and not everyone will like it. Tastes like nice strong spiced tea and you would never expect this to be %9abv. Great bang for your buck!

Had on tap at the Pig & Fiddle
L: Pours hazy gold with a thin white foam cap. Not much lace.
S: Big green tea aroma with tropical fruit and honey
T: Big juicy fruit, spice and light sugar flavors dominate the tongue with definite gooseberry especially on the finish.
F: Medium light body and medium low carbonation.
O: The beer comes across tasting like it has about half the alcohol it actually has and overall I found it better than I expected.
