Tastes like a mistake. Strong and immediate odor of spoiled fruit, rotten honey, and sadness. Honestly, this was so out of whack, I felt ripped off when I had my first sip. I bought four bottles of it, ended up pouring one down the drain and giving three away.

Tried aging this one. Pours hazy, orange-brown in color with one inch head. Taste is caramel malt, tea, big honey and moderate sour mix. Nice combination of sweet and sour with light body and medium high carbonation. I will look for this if they brew it again.

This beer was seriously not good. I love most nightshift beers, but there was something really off putting about this beer.

Wow, lives up to the name. Tastes like a sour green tea. Dried out by the honey.

Interesting brew. Has a tangy sweet tea flavor to it. Certainly not for everyone, but I liked it. Thanks to @johnyb for this one.
