Apricot and honey aroma with a touch of lemon.. Pours a mild hazy amber which you can see the sediment floating around. Has a fruity zing to it. Mild sourness. Drinkable and refreshing. rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2011
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. BREWMUSKCLES (2671) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2011
ABSOLUTELY CHARMING and perfect for the fall. For that matter it would be damn good in the Summer and Spring. The Celebration ale from May to October. Nutmeg,Cinnamon, sweet Wildflower Honey and vanilla, still beery and with a beery aroma AND BURP. Pale yellow and golden. Chamomile...you mix up all these flavors and you come out with nearly perfection. $1.49 in the give away bottle section Queen Anne Liquors Teaneck N.J.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a wheat beer glass.Darkmagus82 (2302) - - AUG 8, 2014
Appearance: Dark gold/light orange shade. Very hazy with no carbonation visible. Forms a large, white, foamy head which quickly and completely dissipates.
Smell: Very sweet, almost bakery-like aroma of honey, flowers and apple pie.
Taste: The label indicates this beer is brewed with honey and chamomile. I’ve never had chamomile before, but I was assume it’s what accounts for the unique flavor of this beer. Usually, I’m not a fan of honey, but combined with the chamomile and the natural banana-bread flavor of the wheat, it makes for a great combination. The flavor and aroma go hand-in-hand in creating for a sweet, pie-like palate - similar to the syrup and crust of an apple pie rather than the apples themselves. Slight cinnamon notes provide the palate with some zip, but the honey sweetness dominates. There’s a slight citrus taste in the finish, but next to no bitterness to speak of. A very delectable palate all around. With a little more energy this would be amazing.
Mouthfeel: Soft, tepid, slightly wet, very clean aftertaste.
Drinkability: While not a refreshing beer per se, WWW is certainly a drinkable one - and how! The sweet palate doesn’t overwhelm and the relatively flat, thinner body makes for a very comfortable mouthfeel and super smooth finish. I think the sweetness might get overwhelming after 2 servings though (like having 2 pieces of homemade apple pie).
Overall, Wolaver’s Wildflower Wheat is a diamond in the rough of summer seasonals. I’m really glad I stumbled across this one.

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.
