Enjoy By: 10/17/14

Pours a nice cloudy pale yellow color, with some nice carbonation, nice one-finger fizzy white head, which also leaves some small islands and sticky lacing. The nose is slightly malty, with some flower notes, and sweetness, nice little yeast note. The taste is malty, yeasty, flowery, slightly sweet. Medium body, with a slight bitter finish. Overall a pretty tasty brew. Again nice to see another new brew in Utah.

12oz picked up at Whole Foods.. Pours a slightly hazy golden brew... Thin white head with no lacing or cap. Strong honey essence works well with the earthy lavender... Odd, but still interesting. The herbaceous lavender never comes off like the flowers, instead like you are rubbing your hands on the leaves.. The honey is fermented out but retains a good presence with residual maltiness.. Okay... I dig the overall beer no doubt, but I doubt I will buy it unless I am brewing a lavender beer. No real qualms, but it is definitely a niche beer.

Squatters Bumper Crop Honey Ale has a thin-to-medium, quickly-dissipating, white head, minimal lacing left on the glass, and a mostly clear, amber (honey) appearance. The aroma is of various herbs and wildflowers, with background malt, and the flavor is of those elements, riding alongside honey and sweetness. Hop bitterness is quite low. Mouthfeel is medium, and Squatters Bumper Crop Honey Ale finishes crisp and drinkable.

Bottle says "Ale brewed with Honey and Lavender."

Chill hazed amber color with a medium sized white colored head.

Smells sweet and of pollen and flowers. Lavender is quite a strong scent here. No real hop but the flower scent is strong and reminds me of a good Saison.

Starts out sweet and malty with a flower after taste. Mild bitterness and a faint trace of acid this is very much a flower beer and would go great with light flavored foods like broiled fish.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall better than expected, very solid flower beer.

Fruit lavender and honey are noticeable right away. Enjoyed this one a good summertime lawn mowing beer or a good brew to suck down before you go meet that chubby girl you meet online.

Not a big fan, but I could see why others would enjoy. Light easy sippin beer just lacks flavor

I think they finally have these releases down. Honey and lavender are both prominent enough but well balanced, crisp biscuity malt finish. Great beer.

Bottle picked up from total wine. Best before 9/18/2014 (poured on July 3rd). Poured out into a bubba Gump Weiss glass. Light blonde in color with a very thin head that quickly dissipates and mildly lingers around the edge. Smell slightly reminds me of perm chemicals but quickly I notice the hint of lavender. The smell is the only negative though and actually brought back some childhood memories of being dragged to the salon with my mother. The taste is slightly sweet with hints of lavender and honey. Mouthfeel is good not harsh and plenty of bubbles. Overall a good beer til the last sip. Wheat beer with a mild yeast used to not overpower the honey and lavender that is this beers uniqueness. Never had a squatter before but I would definitely drink again (and be open to try their other beers)

Poured a wheat color with a 1F head in a mug.

The aroma is quite good: honey and lemon. After it warms up, the lavender scent begins to be noticeable. There is a wintergreen-mint aroma which transitions through to the finish.

Mouth feel: moderately carbonated.

Taste: honey and citrus. After I looked up lavender taste on the net, I realized that the aroma and taste were strongly lavender- a wintergreen- mint taste.

The finish is quite piquant. The lavender spiciness carries through. With warming the flavors are stronger.-- more citrus and wintergreen.

Overall, a very different and enjoyable beer.

this is an awesome seasonal, and the best beer of its kind since wildflower wheat from marble brewing left the state a year or two ago. this is just lovely, blonde hazy beer with notes of fresh honey and lavender flowers. its delicate and not overdone with the special ingredients. at its base is an unfiltered wheat beer with plenty of bubbles and not too thin in body. extremely refreshing, and with the hints of fresh raw honey without all the sugar, and the blooming lavender, i think its a summer beer that will have mass appeal. i also like the new labeling from squatters, looks more classy and eye catching at the same time, more mature and refined, i think they needed such a rebranding for colorado, and i bet this sells well. light on the palate, zesty from the white wheat, and accentuated really nicely. aside from some of the special large format releases, i think this is the best beer ive tasted from these guys. it is versatile with food, insanely sessionable, and just interesting enough to hold the attention of the connoisseur type. very well done summer seasonal.

Honey taste really came through, lavender was subtle. Good carbonation provided outstanding mouth feel. Easy to drink beer that really invokes summertime.

Beautiful amber color, no foamy head, nice white lacing.

Enjoyed old-time tractor photo on bottle's label.

Aroma is spices/mild flowers and malts. The flavor is spices, malts, light citrus/fruit and a mix of slight spiciness and sourness in the finish.

The honey and lavender are subtle, but work very well. A fresh drinkable brew.
