Description

Wood Sage is not a good cooking herb. Wood Sage both smells and tastes similar to hops (amongst many other oils it contains one of the ingredients of hops, namely humulene epoxide) and is thus sometimes used to give beer a bitter taste as well as to clarify the beer (make the yeast sink). Thus used, it endows the beer with a rich hue. Wood Sage is commonly used in alcoholic beverages such as Vermouth and tonics, for it has an extremely bitter taste.

Bees, wasps, beetles and butterflies all feed from Wood sage; one beetle is even specific to it.
