From Gruit day

Appearance: moderate carbonation, minimal head, clear, gold in color

Smell: sage, and a bunch of herbs, chamomile.

Taste: sage, rosemary, heather, lavendar, and chamomile

Mouthfeel: sweet and herbal, light body, medium carbonation

Overall: My favorite of the gruits from gruit day and probably one of my favorite examples in the style. This beer is very herbal but still retains a sense of being a beer. Complex, delicious, and one to get again.
