3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2003 This chamomile beer was delightful! Peach fuzz appearance with a nice head--the aroma of chamomille ever present, twinging rapturously around barley as it pulled me closer. The chamomille barley interaction works exquisitely in flavor as well--this coming from someone who scoffs at chamomille tea. This is a superb example of the herbal beer style. You need not stretch your senses to find the herbal qualites--nor does the chamomille overpower. A pleasant, natural vegetable sweetness on the finish. I would like to see more. Rerated: I have had this brew on two more occasions this past week and it seems to get better all the time. Everyone in my party raved about this brew. A fine, indescribably well flavored, yet subtle and well balanced brew. Superlative craftmanship.
