A-Pours a pale, cloudy yellow color with plenty of fluffy, white foam.

S-The Earl Grey definitely shows up in the nose. Herbal, soft, tea notes. The beer's base flavor is mostly phenolic Saison yeast.

T-More Earl Grey tea which is pretty neat. Lemony notes are also pretty perceivable. The cloves and spice Saison aspect of the beer doesn't really jive with the tea in my opinion; I'd prefer a little less yeast character here.

M-Lighter bodied. Alcohol hidden well. Tea flavor is clean. Softer carbonation.

O-A cool idea. I'm pleased to see that the tea flavor was very easy to pick up. Relic has some pretty neat beer ideas.
