Poured into my new teku, woo hoo. Have been waiting to open it, thought it would be a nice christening beer. The second I opened it, it fizzed out the top. Poured pretty clear golden with a huge white foamy head. Smell is a lot of wheat, some lavender, some spices i can't figure out.Taste is mild, wheat, bready, oats are defiantly present, lavender, some mild clementine. Texture is a bit thicker than anticipated but enjoyable. Overall this beer is unique but you really have to drink it slow to try to pick out all the flavors. I really can't put my finger on most of the flavors but I know I really liked it, very complex but light.

Side note: after the review I saw the label, where it says bready and lavender, now I feel dumb. Or I guess it's good that I recognized the flavors

I have been sitting on this bottle for god knows how long. Picked up locally ages ago. Enjoyed from a reserve society rocks glass. Beer opened with a pop and after the initial pour, became a slow gusher. Look is transparent yellow with a big fizzy top. Smell is lavendar and clove with some soft spicing. belgian yeast. taste is rather zesty and spicy. White peppet on belgian yeast with orange peel and clove. Fairly refreshing on this 90 degree plus day. That being said, it is a bit unique for a wit with the added spicing, but nothing too crazy.
