Bottle opened on 9.6.12.

A - Pours a very light, cloudy orange with lots of bubbles coming up. A big foamy, white head that fades down slowly.

S - Lots of spice, wow! Lavendar, orange zest, lemon, wheat.

T - Same spices, but toned down. More wheat and belgian yeast are present.

D - Lots of carbonation still, lighter body. Nice spices in the finish.

O - Glad to have found and tried this one. Still great.

750ml bottle:

The beer produced a light, semi hazy, yellow body and a huge, thick, dense white head. The head had good retention that settled into a nice rocky head. Loads of carbonation.

A very nice Belgian yeast/grain aroma, hints of alcohol, spices and perhaps a citrus fruit.

A solid Belgian malt taste with a nice sweetness to it.

The beer had a lighter body to it than expected, but it was very smooth and very easy to drink. Overall a really good beer and perhaps one they should think about brewing regularly.

Pours a slightly murky light yellow with a 3 inch foamy white head that settles to a thick craggy cap. Foamy swaths of lace cling to the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, citrus fruit and its zest, and some herbal and flowery aromas. Taste is of slight grain that gets overshadowed by citrus zest, herbal, and flowery flavors. The label specifically mentions lavender and I definitely pick up on that in the flavor. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer but the emphasis seems to be on herbal and floral aromas and flavors.
