12 ounce can into pint glass; no can dating, but is a recent release. Pours hazy deep golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, lavender, honey, wheat, cracker, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity yeast, pale malt, and honey/spice notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, lavender, honey, wheat, cracker, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Zero hop/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, lavender, honey, wheat, cracker, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness of fruity yeast, pale malt, and honey/spice flavors; with a great malt/spice/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a very good pale wheat ale. All around good robustness and balance of fruity yeast, pale malt, and honey/spice flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Drank straight from the can so I canít comment on color or pour. Taste was mildly sweet with lavender really coming through. All in all was a fairly decent beer, and pretty unique. I had from a can.

Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can. Clear light amber with very small off-white head. Aroma is light lavender, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is lavender, some graininess, and hints of honey. Not interested in having this again.

deyholla (8349) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear amber orange with a tan head that dissipates to the edges slowly. Aroma has a nice honey and lavender combination with a sweet wheat backbone. Flavor starts with wheat and honey and has a strong lavender finish.

Found at Brew Krew, East Tawas, MI. First Lavender beer and have to say I didn't hate it. Interesting flavor but hangs around on the palate a bit longer than I would have liked. Overall, this was a fun summer beer that I would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Patrickctenchi (5002) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Can: Pours cloudy, brown-gold with a small vanilla head. Strong lavender sopa, wheat aroma. Flavour is malty, lavender and grains. Very soft and sweet. Different, but a nice taste and creamy feel.

rumproasts (4189) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2014
can. Golden with one finger head. Iíve had one other lavender beer that I can recall, and it was pretty subtle. Here, the lavender is much more forward with some honey sweetness as well. Itís a light mild beer overall. Iím not sure Iím crazy about drinking lavender, but I do give it points for creativity.

Mittenator (1609) - Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Can thanks to the neighbor (big thanks to UP in-laws). Deep gold with a beige head. Strong, sweet, lavender aromas. A bit spicy and floral upfront with a sweet, cereal and grain finish.
