Draught. Had this one at the Penn Brew Fest on June 4, 05. Pours a light golden color with a smallish head and very little lacing. Nose is certainly flowery and I didn’t get as much honey aroma in it as homebrewerguy, but there was a little sweetness there. Immediate wheat flavor mixed with something that was interesting, but not necessarily good. I liked the beer, but there was some sort of strange flavor in there for me. Maybe it was the chamomile. As always, DFH is having fun with beer. Not bad stuff.

I had this beer on tap at the Penn Brewery Fest on June 4. This is a wonderful specialty wheat beer with the honey flavor dominant at first taste but gives way to a flowery flavor. A mild hop bitterness rounds out this beer.

On tap at the "Pennsylvania Microbrewers Fest 2005" at Penn Brewery in Pittsburgh on June 4, 2005. In a 7 oz. flute/ shaker glass provided, this beer is very cloudy, and light yellow in color. Aroma includes wheat, honey, citrus, and flowery bouquet. Flavor is lightly sweet with wildflower honey, perfectly finished with light hop bitterness. Very easily drinkable - a great summertime refreshment. I would love to see this come out in bottles.
