3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ 800° Three Fires. Spicy chamomile, bubblegum, lavender, slight yeast, and white grape aroma. Clear pale gold with a moderate creamy head. Chamomile, light bready malt, lavender, grassy flavor - very herbal. Light body, moderate carbonation. I love herbal florals, so I really enjoyed this one. If you’re not a fan of herbal florals, then this will probably seem medicinal to you.

City Tap House, Philadelphia ($6): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is vegetal, spicy, and herbal. Taste is similar. Kind of tastes like medicine, herbs, and vegetables. I think I actually like tis better than I like most biere de gardes, which are often disappointing.
