12oz bottle poured into a pint glass, fresh, bottled last month.

A- Poured a dark golden-amber color with a slim white head that faded fast. No lacing. Lots of carbonation, small bubbles. As blonde ales go, this one's rather dark in color.

S- To begin with, there's a slight lager enzyme (aka skunkiness) aroma that last but a moment, clearing quickly. Once the beer breathes- light floral and spice and a dose of honey. Some light malts. Pleasant.

T- Honey and some spiciness, a touch of malt. Some tea flavor on the back end.

M- Very smooth and drinkable, well carbonated for some tickle. A bit bolder than I would have thought.

O-Not a bad light-side brew, but it could be more of a 'beer' as I've come to know them.

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.
