COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Caitlin DeClercq created her Honey Bee’s Lavender Wheat with dried lavender petals, giving it a fragrant but soft aroma. A citrus tartness and slight sweetness from the honey and vanilla balance out the finish in this California resident’s brew, perfect to sip while kicking back and relaxing.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was mildly floral and herbal with a light honey sweetness. The flavor is mild to moderate honey sweetness, vanilla, lavender herbal and a touch floral. Nothing too big here.

onceblind (3966) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Honey-gold in color with a small but lacefull white head. Has an aroma of flowers and some herbalness with a wheaty sweetness. Light flavor with some floral tones, a little herbal hoppiness, and a pleasant honey tones. Bitter only in a flower-pedal kind of way. Unique and refreshing with the right amount of sweetness. Not shabby!

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - OCT 16, 2011
10/16/11. 12oz bottle. Clear dark golden color with a small, fluffy off-white head that cuts but lasts and laces a little. Floral, grapey aroma that reminds me of an old lady’s perfume mixed with a touch of honey. Sweet floral and honey flavor with lingering earthy bitterness. Definitely the worst of the pack, as it always is with Long Shot.

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2011
Bottle, shared with my wife over fah. Clear medium gold, thick uniform white head that retains well. Sweet honey cereal aroma. Nice honeyed malts with subtle perfumey lavender accents and a mild bitterness in the finish to balance things out. I’ve said before that I am generally not a fan of honey in beer, but this was very well done and tasty.
