2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Pours a clear deep golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet and sugary floral honey and herbal nose. Starts with average fullness and fine carbonation with some sugary sweetness and floral honey flavor before a drier, slightly biscuity finish. Would be better with a more complex sweetness or a little more body for balance.

From the bottle pours a little like hefe. At the end of the pour a couple of heavy yeast glob hit the drink and slowly fall to the bottom of the drink. Smell is a little sweet, perhaps like honey. Weird initial don’t know what to think flavor but then it begins to grow on me. It has some pokingly interesting tart thing going on in the background and this effect sticks around after you swallow the gulp. I think I like this, yes, has a interesting tingle about itself. If the chamomile or honey has added the zing, whatever, so be it and I like it. The co2 is augmented by this almost hidden tart backfeel. Turns an otherwise wheat ale into something special. I also want to say there is very little ale bitterness in this one. Some sizzly acid thing going on fer sure. I like sour beers and this is interestilngly tart. Good overall wolavers beer experience, could drink another of this one.

Hazy orange pour with a whit head. Aroma is floral, almost like tea. Some yeasty notes in there as well. Flavor is fairly robust but a bit on the sweet side. Some more floral notes in the back end. Nice drinking wheat.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is amber-honey with a short head burst that dissolves in no time. This is also on the hazy side. Honey, grains, and thin wheat on the nose. The body is lighter than honey but has that sort of slick, greasy feel of honey. The taste is not as sweet as I imagined but it does finish with a decent little bite. Not bad at all.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
