Growler from Beer Universe, Saugerties, NY.
Hazy champagne with bone white head.
Banana Belgian nose.
Tart yellow apple, coriander bite, preserved lemon peel and grassy hops finish.
Crisp, light, slight chew.
Good, bright, easy if not complicated wit. Spicing is well judged and the yeast doesn't overwhelm, though I don't get ginger or lavender (or the ABV, which some report as 6.3%) Way summery.
How have I missed this brewery before now?

a wit with lavender, interesting. the pour is a pale cloudy yellow color, real washed out looking and a little thick from all the sediment. good inch and a half of white foam on top that lasts. smells like perfume and springtime, probably overdone one the lavender, but pleasing to my senses nevertheless. I smell coriander too, which works. the flavor is dominated by the flowers, and it feels a little funny as a result. the wheat malt is also a little strong in this, it drinks heavy for an intended light beer. herbal notes in the finish, and a lasting blast of lavender on the tongue. not as well balanced as it could be, but it also tastes pretty good. I think a lot of empire beers could use a lesson in balance and subtlety, but this still works as it is. soften the edges here and its a winner.

A: A hazy golden yellow in color, a nice finger of off white head at the top that left some nice lacing around the glass.
S: Lots of tropical fruit on the nose for this beer, some slight hints of a spice I could not put my finger on.
T: The taste follows the nose on this brew, some nice notes of spice as well, but lots of tropical fruit throughout.
M: Light to medium bodied and a good amount of carbonation.
O: Not a bad beer at all, had this one on a craft beer cruise around Manhattan, this was a very refreshing beer.
