Deschutes Brewery Just Tapped Series Botanical Ale

Deschutes Brewery Botanical Ale, 7.0% ABV with 15 IBUs is part of the Just Tapped Series and is brewed with live yeast for this herb/spiced beer that I purchased from Total Wine. Botanical Ale pours a yellow almost gold color with a one and a quarter finger white head that dissipates at a medium pace. Botanical Ale’s aroma is herbal with root-like notes wafting into the nose with a spiced lemon note. Taste is kind of similar to the aroma with a little lemon mixed in with a jungle herbal flavor with a hint of light lime and a fruity yeast note the hits the back of the mouth with a herb finish and a lemon-lime spiced aftertaste with a lighter mouthfeel. Deschutes Brewery Botanical Ale is definitely fleshing and has a good yet interesting flavor profile that has an almost fruity flavor without additions of any fruits. I think that is neat. I give Deschutes Brewery Botanical Ale a B-. It is good and yes I think that you could have a six pack of these but then it may become a little too much flavor, and this also would be a beer that I would recommend trying for yourself. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
