Local Option Sweet Leif
Local Option Sweet Leif is a Bière de Garde brewed with Chinese Sencha Green Tea. This is a crisp beer with a good bit of carbonation. Great tasting sweet grain and fruity flavors of apples and pears. I’m guessing that kind of minty note that I’m getting is coming from the Sencha tea. It is a pleasant flavor that is working very well with the beer, but if I didn’t know it was tea added I don’t think I would taste it as tea. We are starting to see some Local Option bottles here in Georgia, but since this is a draft only release keep an eye on the draft boards around town for this one!
