750ml bottle into teku glass. Bottled 7/16/13. Thanks Kevin!

A: Pours a burnt amber orange color with a couple fingers of fizzy tan head that faded into a fuzzy collar.
S: Lots of spice on the nose. I get scents of peppery yeast, apple juice, green tea, orange, honey, and golden fruits. Smells intriguing.
T: Honey, orange blossom, and peppery spices dominate alongside hints of green tea that is flavorful and still easy to pick out. Wheat base is crisp and grainy. The finish has a fruity quality to it that reminds me of an apple juice blend. The aftertaste is sweet, spicy, and lingering.
M: Medium-full body, tingly and and fuzzy carbonation, fuzzy and mildly drying mouthfeel.
O: Complex and interesting flavor. Green tea, orange, honey and wheat worked well together. Very delicious. Thanks again Kevin!

Poured from the tap at the brewery on September 8th, 2012.

This beer was amber in colour with a hint of orange and an off-white head that settled quickly. The smell was very sweet and floral with a nice earthiness to it and hints of orange peel. The taste was pretty in-line with the smell... A slight sweet and citrus flavour initially, finishing with a jasmine tea earthiness. Very refreshing.

Would I buy it again? Absolutely.

Batch #6, Bottled 7/10/12;

Poured with a beautiful head: long lasting and nice lacing, but very cloudy/muddy looking. No shaking or stirring, just really muddy.

Smells nice; a bit sour as expected with a wheat beer, bit of floral from citrus and honey and a note of the tea but not much hops, also a touch of bubble gum.

Mostly sour and astringent tastes, not much malt, as you would expect but it lacks the spiciness I was hoping for. Tastes like over brewed tea and citrus pith.

The body and carbo are right on the money.

Drinkable: OK, doesn’t taste as though it is 8.4%, but really not what I was hoping for.

Over all, very disappointed, I was hoping for a spicy and zesty Belgian wheat beer. The flavors seem kind of muddy: distracting from each other rather than complimenting each other.

I remembered the name from an Edible Boston article, I love the local aspect and I love wheat and wit beers. Honey tea wheat ale seemed right up my alley and I was hoping for a special occasion beer. This is not it for me. It could be a poor batch and I will certainly try other beers of theirs but I will not recommend this beer to friends.
