Thanks to bpk59 for sharing.

A - Poured into a standard pint glass a nice crystal clear tea hue with a thin head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of little lemon very light tea notes.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, very light lemons, faint herbal tea notes. Very soft and subtle tea flavours.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, thin, bit watery.

O - Overall this was a decent brew, interesting tea notes. In the right environment this would be solid.

Serving Type: can

I was disappointed with this one. I was expecting "more". More tea, more lemon, more pop overall from the pint. It is subtle, yet after 2 I was not wanting a 3rd. A good concept, maybe they will improve on it ?

15 ounce can into imperial pint glass, canned on 11/12/2014. Pours hazy deep orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange, black tea, wheat, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of lemon/tea spice, bready malt, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange, black tea, wheat, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Minimal herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, black tea, wheat, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of lemon/tea spice, bready malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very good spiced wheat ale. All around good robustness and balance of lemon/tea spice, bready malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
