Notes/Commercial Description:
Blue Magic Lavender Wheat Ale is a uniquely different & refreshing brew. Did we mention it’s magical too? It’s brewed with local honey from Honey Pot Priory & fresh local lavender from Light Of Day Organics. This is a straight forward wheat with dried lavender. This brew has a floral nose and a wheat finish.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Not very bright. Small white head.

Smell - Lavender is really nice. Super floral. I love the aroma of lavender. Very grainy wheat.

Taste - Initial slight citrus. Then lavender. Much more of the wheat ale comes out though. Grainy. Light spice and lavender in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light. Grainy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Lavender is delicious in every way and this beer showcases it really well.

22 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/28/2013. Pours moderately hazy golden straw color with a 2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of lavender, lemon, pear, apple, wheat, bread, honey, floral, grass, ginger, light cinnamon, light clove, and herbal earthiness. Very nice and interesting aromas with good lavender, malt and light hop balance; with good strength. Taste of lavender, lemon, pear, apple, wheat, bread, honey, floral, grass, ginger, light cinnamon, clove, pepper, and herbal earthiness. Light floral/pepper bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, wheat, bread, honey, floral, light cinnamon, light clove, and pepper on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of lavender, malt, and light hop flavors; with nice robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming present on the finish. Overall this is a very nice spiced wheat ale! All around good balance and robustness of flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
