I picked up a couple bottles of this during a recent trip to NYC (God, I love Chicago!).

Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a rather weak head that settles to a moderate blanket almost immediately. The etching in the bottom of my Duvel glass may be helping the head out some here.

I noticed more than a couple black flecks hanging out in my beer throughout the bottle. As I fish them out, more appear. hmmm. Other solid particulate provide nucleation sites for carbonation bubbles.

The smell is not strong and consists of a light graham cracker aroma, honey, and some floweriness. Pleasant and subtle.

The taste is what grabs me here. Big and oily honey tones tempered with solid doses of bitter hops. Ends with an almost anesthetic fennel flavor. I love it.

Mouthfeels is thick, creamy, and wondeful. Highly drinkable!

this ones really strong on the aroma. the aromas are really like a garden of many different flowers, some sage. its really really floral, a bit herbal. the taste is a bit less intense thank fully, but its still hard to swallow. not sure about this one, for me anyway

"...ale with a variety of flowers, including L. augustifolia, A. nobilis, C. officinallis and a generous amount of H. lupulus." After some googling that equals lavendar, yarrow, dandelion and hops.

Gold with a lumpy blanket of white foam on top. Clear to cloudy depending on first or last pour.

Smells like green bananas and must. Tastes very spicy with a burnt agave nectar sweetness which is really, really nasty.

This was a drainpour.
