3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Alesmith... Poured bright, golden-yellow with a white forming head. Nose had perfume-like floral lavender notes. I love lavender so the aroma was quite nice. However it wasn’t interpreted as nicely in the flavor. Mixed with yeast and hops came out sort of soapy and astringent. Too bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. Yellow, slight orange tinge, and some haze. White frothy head. Grainy malt, floral, coriander, light hay, lavender, and kind of perfumy. Nice and dry, pretty good if you don’t mind a flowery beer.
