Bottle @ home. Fairly clear, light orange appearance with an off white head. Floral, lavender, coriander, hoppy, wheat nose. Quite floral, lavender, wheat malty flavor with a bitter floral finish. Pretty interesting spicy wheat ale. I actually really enjoyed it. Itís great to see breweries able to implement lavender and other spices effectively.
