Like a sophisticated older lady with grey hair. It IS grey in color. Very subtle smell/taste/texture. Don't drink with spicy thai food as I once made the mistake. It does take the heat off, but you do not get to enjoy the beer. Very subtle but pleasant, maybe with crackers and cheese, or vegetables, or just by itself.

Very strange beer, but if you like tea and broth (soup) you will love the uniqueness of this one. Slightly smokey even. Light like a rice beer. Definitely not the traditional wheaty heavy satisfying feeling after drinking. Great with vegetarian potsticker dumplings. Not with a burger and fries. That being said, it is still strangely satisfying, in the same way that regular beer is, and I keep coming back for more.

I liked this despite the lukewarm reviews. Nice Wit beer on a hot afternoon in Nantucket. Although everything tastes better here as everyone is wearing red shorts and collared shirts ......the only thing not obnoxious on this island is the beer
