Tastes overwhelmingly like Celestial Seasonings’ "Sleepytime Tea," which is surprisingly light and delicious.

Flavor: lots of spices, again with the apple spice and pumpkin flavors. nice pumpkin spice aftertaste.
Palate: very smooth, slightly bubbly like a sparkling wine or cider
Overall: probably one of my favorite rogue beers. could smell and taste all day!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer looks like a cider - golden red, little head, and pretty murky. Definite chamomile tea flavor, but also very cinnamony, and some bitter fruity apple flavors. Shared this bottle with the guys at the Dallas tasting.

On tap at Rogue Brewers on the Bay. 4 oz sample. Aroma and taste are extreme floral. Pours pale yellow with nice lacing. Tasty if you like fresh flowers filling your senses.

Bottle. Crystal-blonde appearance. "Christmasy" is the best way to describe this stuff. Of the attendees of the great Dallas tasting of summer 2003, we came up with all of the following words to describe it: ginger, cinnamon, cookies, gingerbread, apple pie. I agree with all of it, and it made a nice sweet mix.

Sampled this one on draught at the brewpub in Issaquah, WA where this beer is actually brewed. Pours to a hazy, orange color, with a tight, white head, that fades, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is very interesting, with really good aromas of chamomile tea, fresh baked bread, and light, flowery hop aroma. The palate is firm, with good pale and some light sweet malt flavor. This beer finishes with more good malt character up front, then ends with a very unique, and tasty chamomile tea flavor that lingers. I really enjoyed the tea character in this beer, and you clearly get it in the nose and finish of this beer.

Very herbal aroma, plus a strong apple bake (when you core apples and bake them in aluminum foil with some spices like cinnamon chucked in the center). Attractive. Moderate hazy amber color, no head. Big time chamomile tea flavor and there is the sense that someone waved a mint leaf over the bottle before it was capped. Good life in body, smooth but with carbonation coming out on the palate. I returned to the remnants in the bottle at the end of the evening and it was still a fascinating and fun beer.

This is the Closer! Anyone who has had Sleepytime Tea can apprieciate this masterpiece. Aroma of oatmeal cookies and sleepytime. When we stayed at the Bed and Beer, Newport. Chris always offered us a quart to go. Nice finisher...goodnight.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2004 Chamomellow: Sweet chamomile and apple crisp aroma, with a sweet fruity and spiced chamomile flavor, really delicious. Very mellow with orange and peach flavors, and a light crisp finish. Better than the first time I had it.

Bottled, courtesy of eyedrinkale, thanks for the sharing and caring! Light golden, massive head, very hazy-looking. Gigantic herbal-honey aroma, sweet, sticky and intoxicating....big sweet tea and honey flavors, some hints of cinnamon, late dryness and aromatic hops to create a distinctive finish to a very distinctive beer, though the body could be fuller. Very nice overall though.
