- 3.7 / 5.03 ReviewsToo soon for a final verdict....I put it in the secondary fermentor yesterday. Prior to the tea's addition, it smelled like a not-heavily-hopped ale. After the matcha, it smelled like tea. Right now, the appearance is not like any other batch I've done. Stay tuned.June 30, 2017Purchased
8 months agoNot what I was expectingAll in all this was a fun beer to brew, however it did not turn out as it is pictured.
First off, I'm no master brewer by any means, but my final product came out a lot different than what is shown and described here.
The final product turned out, not a golden color, but a cloudy caramel color. The aroma was a strong smokey scent and the taste was just as smokey. The green tea was not very pronounced and made the beer taste more like dirt than tea.
All in all I can't say I was overjoyed with this beer. It's drinkable the way it came out, but I probably wont buy this again. At least the money went to a good cause.May 1, 2017
