4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 Complex aroma gushing with lavender (stuck with me, and took me several days to identify) interplays with sparkly, warming sweet ginger and apricot flavors, also with slight peppery note like grains of paradise or from the yeast. Carbonating is moderately high and there’s a mineral softness (like a hint of mud or tin, but with finesse) that brings it all to a lush finish. Ready for next sip.

Sweet sweet malt smell...lots of good diverse aromas...taste is the same with mostly a grape flavor that hangs on for a while...almost no hops...pretty smooth and sweet...decent complexity..taste not as sweet or flavorful with additional sips...palate acclimation hurts it a bit...becomes more like light bubblegum and less complex...but a darn good beer

like 7 up sodapop in the beginning and the end. the middle portion of this brew is warm and full with a bit of warm alcohol. the herbs are noticeable yet refined enough this is a nice beer. it morphs which is interesting it could get a 4 without any qualm from me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Treated as a saison because that’s what I thought it is, this was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a hazy golden yellow color with a light carbonation rising at a nice pace. Finger’s worth of white foamy head quickly dissipated. Light lacing slides right on into the beer.
The smell takes on sweet bready to floral (lavender) with a sweet earthy/grassiness rubbing shoulders with some sweet crisp herbal leafiness.
The flavor takes the previously mentioned flavors and wraps together a fantastic herbal/floral/bready combined sweetness. Definitely brings on that lazy sweet "evening" quality of an aftertaste and subtly sliding on into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation rides fairly low in this one, still, a subtle stickiness, but not cloying.
Overall, good saison, I could come back to.

This is a bright beer. Nice color. Sweet body, pretty crisp. The alcohol is completely masked. A little spice, pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazed dark golden color with a taller beige head. Dried herds and flowers in the aroma, along with a good dose of yeast and dough. Hints of allspice and cloves, with a lavender backdrop. Slowly the malt comes forward. Light sweet marshmallow flavors if rather quickly interrupted by a the herbal undertones. Lots of lavender on the tongue. I somehow fell I have just given a message and am now licking my hands. A bit too overbearing in the flavors. 2/11

A deep orange hazy unable to see through it. Very active lasting head. A herbal tartness lays over aromatic Woody hops in the smell. So smooth the soft herbs coat your tongue all taking their turn to make a quick appearance but then blend back into the whole. Soft and velvet on the palate.
