The appearance was slightly burnt orange color with a decent transparency about it. Carbonation runs upward in the center (due to the tulip, I get it). Rimmed lacing clings to the sides and then eventually slides into the beer. The smell starts off more dried florally sweet, light grape must, bready yeast. More of the "lavender" shows up as it warms. The taste follows through in the previously mentioned aromas - sweet and bready. Florally sweet in the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation runs light, fairly decent stickiness, but not cloying. Overall, saison or vegetable/spice/herbal beer? I think saison, all of the normal qualities of one seem to come out and I’d have this again.

Biere de Provence pours a hazy copper
Color with no head. Lots of fresh natural lavender aroma. Taste is creamy, big spice hints of lavender. Good body and feel. Overall big flavors but mellow lavender makes it drinkable.

First had at The Lower Depths Tap Room, Boston, on draft into short tumbler. Spices--it's brewed with lavender, bay leaf, marjoram and chervil--overpower the farmhouse quality of this beer, which at 8.30 ABV drinks more like a Winter Warmer.

Pours a clear deep gold with tiny particulates throughout & effervesce streaming up from the bottom. The pour produces barely a finger of fine & tightly bubbled, foamy, off-white, short-lived head that leaves only a few motes of lace. Aroma is an earthy blend of wild musty yeast, floral, herbal, conifer, citrus & spice. Though it doesn't say ginger was used there is something very ginger like in the nose. Taste is pale malt, musty yeast, floral, earthy herbal, marjoram/citrus, lavender/pine, bay spice, faint caramel & a sherbet-like hint. Aftertaste is a spice/bitter herbal mix. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, dry with a fine prickliness it is slick, a little creamy but also oily, with a chalky aftertaste.
