Editor's note: Prior to 2007 this was akin to a cross between a single and a saison. From 2007 onwards it has been a gruit. The 2007 version included aged hops in the recipe; the 2008 omits hops entirely. Both of these are seasoned with sweet gale, yarrow, and Labrador tea to bitter, and then finished with jasmine, lavender, orange blossom, and chamomile.

Tap at the brewpub - clear golden, fizzy pour out of the tap - huge lavender and lemon grass aroma - semi-tart, with earthy, hay/grass qualities and a strong grain/wheat flavor - lavender and other wildflowers are potent in the mix, but work quite well and balance against one another so as not to become overpowering - very nice.

This belgian has notes of floral and light sdpiced fruits. The peppery yeast notes show well with a balanced bitter finish that drinks smooth.
