3.04/5  rDev -10.1%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

(purchased cold; no freshness dates on bottle - poured, with some vigor, into a tulip pint)

A: hazy liquid, glow of amber in the center, while the outer edges are more a murky yellow-gold... hardly any foam, definitely no retention

S: doughy yeast and day-old bread with some floral flourishes... perhaps some signs of age?

T: startling dryness, butter cookie aftertaste... the grapefruit builds and lingers on the palate after the first couple sips; sits atop what tastes like oatmeal/cereal with a spritz of citrus in it... real deficit of dazzle in the aftertaste... you'd think you might get a hint of apple from the chamomile, but instead it comes across like an browning, oxidized slice of it that been sitting out for an hour

F: roughly the right amount of weight to the body, which is not a lot... disappointing lack of zip to the carbonation, leaves it feeling flat

O: I've had this on tap at the brewery, and it's not much more exciting than this... I'm not opposed to trying this again, via draft or a brewery-fresh bottle, but time and time again, this is a pass for me - something's missing: in the process, the ingredients, don't know...
