These trip beers seem pretty randomly released, oh well. I like to try them.
Bottled: unk

Pours a rather dark "blonde" - amber with a solid sheet of whites with central domage. Smells of honey, sweet malts, some herbal and tea like hops along some soft chammomile - as advertised! Flavor is nice and rounded with slight sweetness, graininess, some chammomile and more honey than I had anticipated. Medium on full bodied with moderate carb. Nice beer. I like this one.

Served in 12oz goblet. Poured a lightly hazy honey gold color with 1-1/2 inches of off-white head that had very good retention and lacing.

The aroma started out a bit sweet, then some spice started showing through. There was a nice grain base providing support for the Chamomille and Honey used in this brew. The flavors, while being a lot like the scents, did have a nice floral aspect that I didn't get in the nose. A nice grain taste was present throughout the brew.

The body was full, without being heavy, smooth and had a touch of stickiness on the finish. Drinkability was good, but I probably wouldn't have more than one at a time. Overall, a good brew but a lot is going to depend on one's taste for the various elements used in the brew. Worth trying if you see it.
