2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.33 l bottle, thanks Johannes! Hazy orange amber color. Strong perfumed aroma of lavendel with notes of cinnamon, clove and christmas cookies. Bitter and perfumed taste with lavendel and woody spices. Lavendel creates a strong association to perfumed detergents. Weird tingling woody mouthfeel. A really perverse taste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber body, stable head. Odd hop aroma, perhaps wet hopped? Tropical but not super fresh. The malt base is nice, but the hop doesn’t work, instead is sweaty and grainy. Ending only mild bitter and not dry enough. Not up to the brewery standards. (33cl bottle at Brewberry)

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle gifted to me after dropping too much $$ at Brewberry. Thanks! Date on this is about a year ago, so not expecting much hop character. Pours very hazy dark golden colored with a big creamy white head on top. Aroma is up front lavender flowers, sweet bready malts, lemon peel. A bit of a floor cleaner smell. Flavor is lemon and lavender, pine, bready malt, lemony finish. Medium bodied with low us carbonation . Yea, this just tastes like Lemon Pinesol. But who can complain too much about a free beer?

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Brewberry, pours a cloudy dark orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of lavender, not so much in the hops department. Flavour brings out fresh lavender atop a light body. Again, not really any hops detectable here. This is a lavender bomb. Not too intrusive, but it is rather one-dimensional. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Une bouteille acheté datant d’octobre 2013 achetée au Brewberry même. Nez hyper florale et légèrement pouvré avec des houblons fantomatiques qui tentent de percer. L’effervescence est pratiquement absente, on croirait un cask. Des malts bien enrobés et de la lavande, intéressant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (330 ml) @ Brewberry (Paris). Slightly hazy deep golden with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is mainly of lavender along some spices (cinnamon), malt. Taste is very similar to the aroma... also dominated by lavender along a nice malt backbone and some spices. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Lavender (kind of soapy, but not in a bad way) finish. Balance isn’t bad despite the lavender presence. Quite drinkable. Interesting!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy deep gold with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has lots of lavender with underlying grass and sweet grains. Flavor starts with light grapefruit which lasts throughout and is joined by a good amount of lavender with a touch of cinnamon.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(33 cl bottle from BrewBerry; Bottled on October 8th 2013) Pours a semiclear amber with ample, white head. Decent retention and lace. Aroma is soapy lavender. Oily texture, medium carbonation, medium body and a sweet, perfumey finish. Flavour has notes of citrus and a lot of lavender. I guess I’m not a huge fan of adjuncts in beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small sample @ De Molen: Draught: Served in a taster:
Medium sized white foamy head on top of a cloudy yellow colored beer.
Aroma reveals the spice character and once you know it’s lavender, you know it’s lavender. Some hops, citrus, some flowers and a light malty backbone. Crisp and pretty special aroma.
The flavour is quite the same. A nice spice, yes lavender, flavour but also some hops, some citrus and apricot, nice bitterness, bit floral, some malts and a touch of herbs.
Aftertaste is nice bitter, light lavender, light hoppy and some light fruity/flower tones.
Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller bodied and a creamy texture.
Interesting beer! Very tastefull and pretty balanced with a good crispyness. Too small of a sample to make a good rating out of it... Nevertheles tasty beer!
