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.

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.

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)

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.
