ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Draught at the brewery on 2/7/14
Very pale, nearly lime-juice colored beer with some golden tints and a small but well-retained white head. Hazy, but not cloudy.
Very little aroma, per style, some vanilla, creamed wheat, light peppery hops and just a touch of tartness from the fermented honey. No flaws though...
In the mouth you are immediately greeted by a very lightly tart wheat character and a healthy dose of fairly tight carbonation that quickly gives way to very authentic honey sweetness. It’s ALMOST too sweet, but not quite. The blandness from the wheat gives it something to sink in to and the light tartness, touch of peppery/spicy hoppiness and moderate carbonation help keep it balanced. Pretty nice flavor balance they are able to achieve without it being fully fermented out. Do they add honey to secondary? Don’t know. The chamomile, furthermore, is a bit of an afterthought and very elegantly not overdone. Maybe a touch too soft/syrupy of a texture, but otherwise really nice take on the "style".

Bottled 02/10/13. A hazy tan coloured beer with a white head. A zesty citricity in the mouth with wheaty notes. A bit dull in the nose as wheat ales can be.. There’s a real coconut note in the mouth which I like. Quite sweet zestiness. Interesting and pretty tasty.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The label has a short description and a USDA organic seal. Appearance: It has a hazy amber or light honey colored body with a light creamy head. The head fades quickly but leaves a thin ring of foam around the edge of the glass that hangs on till the end. This makes some spotty lacing on the way down the glass. Smell: There are lots of floral chamomile notes with hints of wheat, sour dough bread, oat/light grain, and honey. Taste/Palate: It starts with a light wheat base with light grain notes, mild honey sweetness and plenty of floral (almost tea like) chamomile. It finishes semi-sweet with light wheat tartness for balance and no real noticeable hop bitterness at all. The palate is soft and easy to drink. Notes: I see this being a very good hot weather beer/ middle of the day beer with a light lunch. Overall, I really like it.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 29, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a creamy one finger white head. Smells of sweet, fresh honey and flowers with nice bready malt notes. Tastes of honey, wheat and chamomile, with faint hop bitters that are in nice balance with the malt. Light to medium bodied, dry in the middle, with a crisp finish.

kramer (5095) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded fairly quickly. The nose is rather light, just a little bit of watery honey and some minimal wheat. The flavor is fairly light as well, some moderate floral spiciness, sweet honey, and a thin wheat malt base. Light bodied and fizzy with a thin short finish. Not a whole lot to like about this one, and the chamomile gets a little tiring by midway thru the bottle.

Pours a slightly hazy, honey color with a minimal head. Aroma of honey, flowers and spice - and that is pretty much what you get in the taste. Some sweetness from the honey, but not overly sweet. Good wheat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
