On tap at The Only, part of Beau's FeBREWary gruit series, a lavender gruit.

Close your eyes, take a sip… and you'd swear you're drinking lavender ginger ale. The nose reveals the stronger lavender notes and between the sweetness, a hint of ginger, and the spritzy carbonation - you have lavender ginger ale. No head but ample spritzy carb, sweet in a 'tripping the light fantastic' sort of way, light herbal notes that almost border on peppery, simple but refreshing.

While it barely tastes like 'beer' and is perhaps a little too simple and light for the 'seasoned' beer drinkers of this site… it's a refreshing, delightful ale. A nice twist.

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately fast and leaves next to no lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of lavender, ginger and some pepper. Very floral/herbal.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some lavender, ginger, herbal notes (slightly grassy), light pepper and some floral notes.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Had this on tap at The Corner in the Glebe. Apparently it was International Gruit Day. From notes.

A - Hazy orange pour with two fingers of white head on top. Very mild carbonation. No lace, no retention.

S - All sorts of interesting herbal spices. Sage? Not sure how to describe it aside from that. Floral. Pretty interesting.

T - Honey, sweet malt, lot's of herbs and spices. Floral, sweet spice. Pleasant stuff.

M - Mild carbonation, medium body, sweet spice in the finish.

O/D - This really surprised me. My expectations for Beau's have dropped significantly in the last little while, but this was the best I've had from them in a long time. Lot's of floral and spicey stuff going on without being too aggressive. I liked it.
