A light bronze appearance, off white head about a half inch. Smells like flowers and a store in the mall.

Tastes like spice rack and bed bath and beyond. I still haven't found a gruit I like. Dem gruit, but dem no can gruit.

This is a really solid gruit, and a beer worth seeking out.

Thanks again Brandon for sharing this long time want of mine.

The beer pours clearly with a thin white halo of white head. The nose presents huge herbal notes of Ginger, flowers, pencil eraser, and mint/white sage. It's held up really well. The taste is right on par with ample herbal flavors and a sweet, well carbonated finish. The mouthfeel is sweet and herbal, drinkable, with well rounded flavors. I must reiterate, this is definitely unexpected and impressive for being 2 years old. It's a very delicious beer that I would definitely try again.
