Pours a golden yellow with a white foam head. Has an aroma of sweet belgian yeast and lavender, along with a little bit of funk. Flavor is sweet, with lots of spices, particularly lavender. Has a full body, syrupy feel. Excellent all around.

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.

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.

A murky dark amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, light candy sugar with light oxidation, treacle, light cherry and cinnamon notes, OK. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt with light candy sugar, cherries, lactic acid, alcohol warmth, nice, if a bit tired.
