look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Look: Pours with huge fizzyish, medium sized bubbles white head. Rocky slow retention, breaking down into big bubbles that leave fat, thick layer on the top at the end. Cloudy, copper, wheat dark yellow with fair amount of carbonation and lacing.

Smell: Chamomile! Rancid chamomile. Feels kinda stuffy, like a chamomile tea left too long to brew. Overall herbal feel, with earthy, floral, light lemon, white wine and peppery notes. Some funky yeasty notes hidden in the herbal part.

Taste: More pepper, gingery than in the smell, herbal part a bit smoother. Rich medium sweet malty part combined with strong herbal notes make an unique herbal teal like feeling, which doesn't really fly in my book. Light-med noble hop bitterness with some malt/wheat sweetness at the end. Sweetness goes into the sour zone with few sips.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, medium body, still relatively smooth. Not too much going on tho.

Overall: Chamomile! They dominate over all other and combined with the rich malt backbone make a descent herbal tea. It is interesting, but doesn't appeal to me. Don't associate herbal chamomile tea with something pleasant - rancid remedy for stomach ache.
