draft at West End Tavern. hazed wheat body. soft floral fruit and lavender nose, the perfume character is thankfully low and when colder, the lavender seems to compliment the fruitiness of the hops. medium-light body turns massively watery late. honey is non-existant and the lavender goes from "tolerable" to "annoyingly expressive" as the beer warms and opens up.

Draft. Honey and lavender? That explains the sweetness. Pretty sweet candy sugary sweet, citrus candy, fruit, sharp biting bitterness, and lightly herbal. I am not a fan of this.

Light golden slightly cloudy with a small frothy head. Light hints of honey and not much hop bitterness. Overall a good beer just needs a little strengthening.

Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Light honey and lavender on the nose. Tastes of caramel honey and lavender with a bitter vegetal finish.
