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.

Too sweet, dull flavors and watery body. Not very refreshing at all. Not what I’m looking for in a beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 10-8-12-
Poured from can into pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours from the can as a lightly hazed golden orange color with a one finger white head. The head fades very fast to give only a tiny level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of wheat and sour lemon. Mixed with these aromas are some lighter notes of yeast and a malty smell.
Taste – The taste starts out of wheat and malt and is quite lemony. The lemon taste gets even stronger as the taste moves on. As the taste moves on with the lemon increasing in the flavor becomes more and more tart. In the end a rather mouth-puckering lemon and wheat flavor are left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the light side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly above average side. Good for the style as it balances out some of the tart flavors by not allowing them overpower the tongue but yet the feel yields to a more refreshing feel.
Overall – A bit on the tart side for me, but that is to be expected for the style. Not a bad flavor profile and rather refreshing.

12oz bottle from a Wegham’s in Buffalo, NY. A hazy amber pour with a trace of white head; pleasant honey aroma; gentle, sweet, floral taste, well balanced with just a touch of honey; but lacking any finish. A refreshing, and surprisingly enjoyable beer.

Okay, sort of digging this offering. Chamomile and honey lend towards a "tea" like quality to this beverage. This is very smooth. Good summer brew.

Pours a soft golden brew with two fingers of soft white head. Nose is interesting, a round floral character and malty sweetness shows with a touch of isoamyl acetate. Round banana bread character in the flavor that touts a nice round sweetness and an interesting floral and spicy character.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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".
