jgb9348 (5527) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Hazy golden coloured body with a thin pure white head. Aroma of pungent spices, light fruit and a good fresh light malt note - strong throughout. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong fresh apricot and fruity flavours show well, just over top of the nice fresh malt and smooth finish of spices and herbs throughout. Aftertaste shows the fruits battling out with the spices, but eihter way - they both add to the flavour in a great way and finish it out dry, but slightly sweet - nice and flavourful, especially for the style. Overall, a very nice beer full of flavour with some light hops, but this is all about the fruit and especially the spices, including the chamomile flowers. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Sicilianoís in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 11-September-2015 for US$2,19 sampled at home in Washington on 14-June-2016.

12oz bottle in Berlin. Ruby reddish color with very little head. Lavender and wild fruit aroma. Taste is flowery, slight fruitiness. Different, but decent.

Bottle. Wow, this one is all over the map. Itís like drinking the fruit and produce section of the local grocery store in a bottle. Still, not too bad.

rondphoto (3749) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 10, 2016
bottle @ Jungle Jims / Cincinnati OH --- Amber brown color with bits of sediment, rocky white head, blobs and strings of lace. Taste is solid semi-sweet malt that adds peach cobbler on a medium fizzed swallow, following it with mild hops and a little ginger. A different brew, one is quite enough, but it is what it is trying to be.

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Lightly hazed dark golden color with a taller, somewhat fluffy, light beige head. Some particle adrift and gaining number with each addition. The couple small pea sized orbs bobbing about on the bottom are slightly distracting/disturbing. Light yeast and flowers mix with pale grains and flour. Lightly sweet and slightly acidic. Definite chamomile and I get a bit of ginger. Lots of larger chunks in the final pour. Quite opaque/dirty. Light fruit, linger. A peach pie seems to come to mind.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2016 I say fuck off for any brewery that uses the name Jesus, maybe you mean hey-zues, no? If you want to push religion, just name a beer muhammad why donít you? Too scared fraidy cat? Bottle, weird slow foaming out of the top when the lid is pop, not a gusher, just a crawling foaming snake coming out. Aroma is alarmingly sweet. Taste is almost all vegie like, spices and other BS. Apricot is practically none existent. In my humble opinion this probably should be classified as a Spice/Herb/Vegetable, just like old fezziwig. Not impressed and BTW what is all this BS about using the name jesus on the labels of beers lately? Why not mohammad?

mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Pours a ruddy copper color, light tan head with a small amount of lace. Aroma is light on the apricot, some floral, by not specifically chamomile, sweet bread. Taste is still sweet bread, like a Hawaiian roll, chamomile is very present in the taste, not getting any apricot, pleasant bitterness on the tail end. Good brew.

shrubber85 (10247) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle. Chamomile, apricot, and toffee malt aroma. Hazy amber with large light tan head. Sweet chamomile, light apricot, toffee malt, and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Nice body. A very pleasant beer - strong chamomile.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big apricot, peach, slight spice notes into some floral, grassy notes, touch of sweet fruits with a hint of grain. Taste was a mix of bread, biscuit, some slight peach, lots of apricot juice into some slight spice, floral, herbal notes, finishing sweet.

matty (340) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark Amber color with a brief off-white head that settles to a film. Was getting a plastic smell at first but after a few minutes the floral herb aroma came through with some of the apricot in the background. Medium body, the taste is a bit tart but not overwhelming. The label says itís a pale ale but Iím not getting much hops and it seems a bit too dark to me. Overall itís not bad.
