First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA

"brewed with honey, hibiscus and chamomile"

Medium amber pour with a thin white head that completely disappeared after a minute or two, leaving no lacing behind. Aroma of sweet malts, floral, herbal. Taste was about spot on for the description given, but still a bit weak and generic overall; honeysuckle, caramel malts, citrus oil, chamomile, a bit of rosemary-like herbal spice. Flavor fades fast leaving a bland, golden-ale aftertaste. Light-medium body, low carbonation, easily drinkable as far as mouthfeel goes, but not really something I'd go for again.

A- Golden/amber body with a bubbly, thin white head. Darker than most blonde ales, but not bad looking.

S- Honey, herbal tea, toasted malt, some spices.

T- Very light on traditional beer flavors, with more tea-like flavors coming through. Chamomile tea with honey are the predominant flavors that come through.

M- Definitely drinkable, light-medium bodied and medium carbonation.

O- Essentially an easy drinker with tea-like flavors. Not my favorite, but may be appealing to others.

12 oz bottle. Aug 2013 notched on the bottle.

A: hazy, lots of sediment. orange body. vivacious carb racing to the surface. head is meh. retention is non-existent.

S: smells strongly Belgian. chamomile and honey. smell sort of like tea.

T: sweet. slight toffee. initial sip makes me think that there is something wrong here... I don't say this that often with brews that utilize honey, but you can actually taste the honey. it surprisingly didn't ferment out completely. tastes like a heavily honey'ed cup of tea. until the finish when it dries out entirely. finish is like water.

M: average carb on a light body.

D: pass. too much going on here on a body not enough to support all of these ingredients. not sure what the goal is here, but they need to do some re-working.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- A clear golden amber color with a small white head.

S- Kind of light, chamomile, some honey, caramel malts, floral.

T- Getting the hibiscus, chamomile and honey and they are work together very well, nice malt backbone, really floral/herbal.

M- Light to medium body, lots of carbonation.

O- A tasty spring session beer and being under $10 a 6-pack it is worth trying. If I saw this on-tap at a bar I would, but with six-packs I feel that I will pick up a six when the weather is warm and probably open one or two when grilling or relaxing out side.

On tap at Hudson St. Stackhouse.

The beer pours a golden amber color with farily decent head retention and light lacing. The beer smells pretty nice, as I get something of cherry orange aroma, coupled with some brown sugar and honey. The honey and brown sugar seemed to dominate in this lightly sweet beer, with a hint of bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is fairly light, and what flavor there is, drops off pretty quickly on the finish.

Mehhh... it is what it is I guess, but I'll go with a good German pilsner if I want something sessionable/low in alcohol. This would probably make a fairly decent transition beer for someone looking to upgrade from their usual macro swill, but otherwise... pretty sure I don't need to order this one again.
