hazy yellowish gold, bubbles floating on top for a head, a trace of lace. nose: Chamomile!! too much so. flavor is CHAMOMILE! earthy and apple-y. medium bodied, odd finish. pretty dominating in the chamomile department. on tap at brew pub.

On tap at the brewpub: This poured a hazy golden body with a decent head that provided ample lacework. The aroma was chamomile. Period. But it was okay. Nice creamy real ale mouthfeel. I could detect some wheaty maltiness beneath it all, but I was mainly overpowered by the strong spicing. Not a bad idea, but the chamomile was a bit heavy handed for me.

Huge chamomile aroma wafting from the cloudy golden pour...cask conditioned of course...CAMRA would be proud. Wheat base beer seems to get lost under the weight of the huge floral load imposed upon it. Think a large cup of tea poured into your pint glass. Cool idea, and I really should have my wife try this one to get her response, but just too much herbal/floral perfume for my palate.

Poured in an Imperial Pint at the Mug Club Frankenstein tapping on cask (Flossmoor, IL). Special release. Pours a well hazed orangey gold, bubbly white head that dies to a film. Aromas are indeed chamomile, a little sweetness and potpurri feel comes through, aromatic is the key with some flaked wheat making an appearance. Initial is good consistency, flaked wheat malt is subtle, taking on chamomile and cinnamon qualities off the bat. Aroma becomes the flavor, coats the whole palate. Freshly made applesauce, cinnamon, and chamomile seem to be the dominant flavors, a bit of wheaty cereal finish turns just faintly tart. Crisp, fruity, potent essence bordering on some sort of cloying, not sweetness, but essence. Cereal and apple jacks begin to be what I taste. This isn’t bad,and as far as I’m concerned, is not a gimmick. I liked this frankly because it was different but the chamomile is very powerful.
