Hazy blond, thin head. The aroma has a lot of lavender and some wheat, and yeastiness too. Spicy and with lots of lavender on the palate. Good balance and fresh-tasting.

Bottle at Mondiale 2011. This beer was brought out on the last day and got lost in the shuffle, noone ordering it. Decent looking unfiltered blonde beer,nice retention of head and some lace floral novelty. Easy mouthfeel,some yeast, unique tastes tasty, not bad one.

A spectacular white tower is constantly renewed by the volcanic carbonation that inhabits the cloudy gold. Perfumey, flowery, sunny lavender brings you straight to the field, feeling slightly rustic, but used with more generosity than I’d like, but when a beer is called lavender belgian wheat, you can’t expect parcimony. I’m not a huge fan of lavender that I can’t but associate with soap, but the beer is well-brewed indeed if perhaps a bit more effervescent than seems necessary, the beer exploding into a biting foam as soon as it touches the tongue. Otherwise, the wheat feels very fresh and surprisingly feeling, making the beer bready and nourishing all the while being floral and highly aromatic. I can imagine this pairing nicely with food.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Draft at mondial. Milky pale yellow. Stable head. The lavender is subtle and becomes blended nicely with the yeast esters and lactic sweetness. Palate is light, lively, and milky. The malt is nutty and firm but light. Refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2011
Bottle: Poured a yellow color ale with white haze and a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of lavender and coriander with refreshing wheat malt and light orange peel notes. Taste is also a refreshing and complex mix of lavender and coriander with notes of orange peel with some super solid wheat malt. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very well brewed with great drinkability and some very nice complexity.

rodenbach99 (3127) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2011
Bouteille de 500ml. Bière jaune dorée avec une mousse blanche. Les arômes sont bien agréables avec des notes florales, de la lavande (bien sur) citron, épices et de blé (discret). La bouche a une bel équilibre entre les fleurs et les agrumes. Le corps est mince mais très rafraichissant. Un produit d’été par excellence et une belle découverte qu’est la lavande. Malheureusement à 5,99$ le prix est prohibitif.
