Mostly clear golden with a foamy white head. Bright herbal nose with notes of dandelion and summer flora. Clean and crisp semisweet flavor that features dandelion and a fresh summer citrus zest, but mostly still summer herbs, lavender and a touch of honey. And fennel.

12 oz. bottle from Santa shared with the group. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet honey notes, toasted malts, floral, and herbal character with the lavender being noticeable but not over the top, a splash of light fruity notes. Decent enough for what it is.
