Today, the ice disrupted my trip to work, so I gave the Wife a ride to her work, waited for her (she was only a couple of hours), and then stopped at the homebrew shop. I am getting low on my first homebrew, which was awesome. So I decided to use a similar recipe, but switch up the hops.
The hop that I went with was the Amarillo; I am hoping for a more aggressive hop bitterness. A post will be following my brew night.
First taste is exactly what is expected. The sage has a dominant hold on the taste. Maybe a little lemon, and a slight teaser of hop bitterness. The wheat malt backbone is prevelent, but is overrun by the sage. Even though the sage dominates the taste, it is not dominating in an annoying way. It would make a very nice compliment to a herbal meal (I am thinking Peruvian chicken).
The carbonation is well balanced with the malt. The 6.8 percent alcohol does not push though, and it is barely there- if you want to look for it.
Overall, this was a very nice beer.
