3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting. I had no idea what this was when I drank it at Rodini’s in Michigan City since the waitress said it was only called "Gypsy". I was able to find the Evil Czech tap handle and now it all comes together.
Golden with a sweet and spicy taste. Aroma is also a bit spicy. Great bite in this beer as well, which makes the sweetness work. Unique. I’d drink it again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Cloudy golden body with a frothy white head. Aroma of raw grain, chamomile, pepper, spice, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Spicy and floral with a lingering bitterness. At the same time, the strong chamomile flavor leaves an astringent plastic taste in the finish. And because of the strength of the floral notes, the other flavors are muddled.

An average wheat beer is a bit different than your average sessionable draft. For one thing it is a little on the heavy side. For another the addition of chamomile adds an extra layer of depth. Combined the result is worth ordering at least a five ounce pour.
Aroma / Appearance - The golden cloudy body is accented by a stark white head. Yeast, lemons, wheat, and fresh spruce are helped by a sprinkle of fresh chamomile leaves.
Flavor / Palate - The impression of weedy salad greens throws off the typical flavor profile of a wheat beer. Tea leaves and dandelions soothe the throat before fading with a mild bitterness. This was listed at 5% on the board; perhaps the ABV has been tweaked in the last few months.

Tap at brewery. Sweet floral chamomile aroma. Golden yellow with a white head, creamy lacing. Strong floral chamomile flavor. Light body, low carbonation. This beer was all about the chamomile, and I love chamomile, so I loved everything about this beer.
