McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 136 of 140: A pint of Wildflower Wheat which I enjoyed at the Fireside Bar, one of five venues for eating and drinking on the McMenamins Old St. Francis School property in downtown Bend, Oregon. According to the brewer:
“This American Wheat ale has all the basics for a great tasting wheat beer. Clean crisp body and a mellow hop flavor with a touch of malt chewiness. To put a unique twist on this beer we added wild chamomile flowers to enhance the flowery aromatics and herbal flavor. This enhances the overall mellow sensation that a wheat beer can be about. A wonderful combination to a sipping wheat beer!” Measurements: 5.0% ABV • 23 IBUMy notes from that day read: “This was pretty good, with a nice floral flavor, as the description said. It was definitely my first chamomile beer! I would get it again.” May 2017.
