2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On cask @ Karl Strauss Costa Mesa. Hazy straw colored pour with a white head. Smells like soap. A bit heavy on the lavender for my liking. Hints of banana, lemon, bread, and clove. Flavor is lightly tart and very, very soapy. Tastes like a fancied soap, or what I’d imagine one tastes like. Lavender, banana, orange peel, lemon, bread, and clove. Meh.

On tap at Karl Strauss Carlsbad. Great aroma. At first I thought it was lavender, but now I call it fruity pear and banana from hefe yeast. Pretty nice. Cloudy deep yellow color. Lightly sweet . Easy to drink. Very nice. My wife likes it too.
