3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had 13 beer flight on a beautiful custom wood flight. Beers overall were solid and the service was great. Nothing extraordinary overall with flight, but most palatable and easy to drink. A few unique beers with honey and lavender. Individual beers as follows:
Worth your weight in gold: Lager taste, slight malty feel, plenty of flavor for a yellow clear beer. Nice lager.
Slippery rock Dew: Thick in the mouth, honey flavor readily present, fresh and refreshing
Station 33:Crisp, caramel malts, simple but enjoyable
Mcleods Eva: Smooth, sweet at the end. Light and watery for a malty beer. Less overwhelming, good or bad, then many in the same style
Squirel Nut Brown: Good rendition for the style
Amber waves of grain: Can really taste the caramel malts. Drinkable.
Simcoe Pale Ale: Smells like a christmas treee. Would be nice with a big dinner to cleanse the pallate between bites.
Paleo IPA: average IPA
Frias Porter: Good flavor bute falls a little short. Root beer flavor at the end
Stonehouse stout: On nitro. Guiness feel in the mouth but a bit more boring.
Fruit bowl: neat idea, apricot flavor this go around, great summer beer
Lavender Abbey: Strong aroma and flavor. Lavender hits you in the face. Polarizing experience.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Looks like a cloudy hefe. Does have a mild beldgy yeast aroma, can’t smell any lavender in there. Weird yeasty effect on the palate initially. YEs, that beldgy yeast thing I think is a little overdone. Not quite as refined as the real belgian abbeys but a good try. Some mild sizzle. Finish is a little less than expected.
