COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian-style ale which had lavender added during the boil and conditioning, which gives the beer a hint of lavender in the aroma and also a unique dry finish. It may have calming after-effects but we’re still going to have a TWO PINT LIMIT

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.

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.
