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!

Batch 4, bottled 5/30/12, ABV 7.1%

A: A really opaque orange pour. Big fluffy light tan head. Fades slowly, leaving nice lacework behind.

S: Decent amount of green tea. Very wheaty with some nice honey too. Refreshing.

T: Green tea up front, which fades into a nice wheaty malt with a hint of honey. Wheat fades and the green tea remains; quite strong and bitter. Finish is pure green tea and it lingers for a long time in the aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied, decent carbonation.

O: A unique brew. It's a good combination of the green tea, wheat and honey at first. However the second half of the taste is pure green tea. It's like drinking cold, carbonated green tea once the initial flavor fades. Which I suppose would be fine if you love green tea, but I'd like a little more beer in my beer. Better balance would make this tasty and refreshing I think.
