Pours a pale straw hue with a fast fading wispy one finger head and no lacing really, smell is bready malts, soft lavender and rosewater, feel is light bodied, moderately carbonated and very refreshing light carbonated water with tastes of rosewater, lavender, a touch of barnhouse funk and finished with a light tart tangy dryness, overall a nice try but no cigar cheers.

Pours gold with a fading white head.
Nose shows subtle doughy wheat, lemon, elderflower. Pretty basic.
Similar flavours but more fruit oriented. Lemon, elderberry and a slight acidity later on.
Very light body but it works ok.
Ok but not all that expressive...

Clear straw colour with a small white head. Poor head retention.

Slightly wheaty, lactic aroma. Not too powerful.

Slightly tart and lactic. Lacking a bit of punch. Good wheat flavour. I don't mind it but I'd love a bit more punch.

Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

A solid beer but nothing exceptional. I wish they'd just take that extra step and make it more exciting but it does okay.
