On tap at The Los Abbey/Port tasting room in San Marcos, CA.

Pours a clear light yellow with a white head that settles to a thin cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is pretty interesting with some floral, spice, and minty aromas. Taste is also pretty interesting with floral and spice flavors up front and a minty aftertaste. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some very interesting aromas and flavors.

Writing this review from my notes. Tried the beer last month at Avery in Boulder.

APPEARANCE: Slightly cloudy with a greenish tint in an otherwise pale, yellow beer. No head at all, which translated to almost no lacing.

SMELL: An odd combination of vegetables, mint and honey. I also got a bit of spice and herb, but several other people disagreed with me.

TASTE: OK, this is certainly an unusual beer. The mint and honey from the nose seem to be present, but there is a pickle-like flavor as well. A slight hop character and a faint hint of flowers were also noticeable.

MOUTHFEEL: This was probably the best aspect of the beer. Big bubbles tickled the palate and despite the lack of head, it was a strongly carbonated beer.

OVERALL: A ton of work went into this beer for sure, but ultimately it was too weird and over-the-top for me. I'll try it again if I get the chance, but just because it is so unique.

Reviewed from notes:

appearance: Hazy golden yellow in color with one finger head

smell: cucumber and other Vegetables, tangy,

taste: cucumber, vegetables, as it warms pickle juice

mouthfeel: Mild carbonation medium body

overall: Glad I got to try it. Not sure its for everyone. and I don't think I can drink another it's like a vegetable cocktail and then turns into pickle juice.
