-clear, deep brown bottle pour (750 ml) with very fine carbonation, but no lacing. Aroma is uniquely floral and herbal. The malt and farmhouse yeast flavors are topped and crowned by lavender, and other floral and herbal notes. The finish is a tad musty. This is a uniquely flavored brew. (apologies for the redundancy). I am almost always surprised by The Commons' brews...and again.

Have you ever eaten a stick of chap stick? If so, you would identify with this beer. If you have not, you should either drink this beer or literally bite plain chapstick to get the flavor.

Tasted 8 January 2016. I can't resist Commons beers, even though I've had mixed experiences.

Pours a dark brown, clear despite the darkness. Half a finger of medium yellow-tan head, okay retention and lacing.

Smell is an odd amalgam. A little woody, a little roasty, a bit spicy. Mildly sweet. Pretty nice, actually.

Taste is rather blah. It's like a slightly toned-down version of the smell. Strongly woody, malty and bready sweet, somewhat like a marzen or doppelbock. Not bad.

Feel is really good. Medium-bodied, carbonation that's chewy and mouth-filling, lots of big bubbles churning it up.

A decent beer, and rather unique. It could use some clarity, some more specific direction. I'm enjoying it, though I can't grab onto anything that makes me really like it.

This pours a purple tinged cola color with tight foaming lace
This has a wonderfully floral aroma. The notes of chamomile, hibiscus and lavender come through in a nuanced balanced way. It's pleasing and delicate with a floral flavor that comes across followed by a punch of lavender. Absolutely loved this.
