A beer that never should’ve been retired, one of the most solid parts of the Bruery stable, the lavender really catapulted this to an excellent and unique witbier. I greatly preferred this to Saison Rue and the such.

750 ml bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours a slightly cloudy gold with a voluminous white head that hangs around a bit. Lavender blue, dilly, dilly. Hints of lavender in the aroma and flavor. Also scents/flavors of orange peel, lemon zest, coriander spice and Belgian yeast. Sweet with a hint of tartness. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Interesting beer, glad I got to try it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Muddy yellow body, almost opaque; huge, chunky, cloud-like head builds up & lasts forever... Fat, bright white lacing left all along the glass. Aroma is very floral; notes of zesty lavender, phenolic spice, coriander, baked bread, soft wheat, & some spicy, generic Belgian-style yeast. Slight twinge of musky, cotton-like funk to it. Taste explodes with fresh baked bread, wheat, & Belgian yeast. Mild flavors of lightly tart granny smith apples, citrus peel & lemon zest add a nice amount of sweetness. Grain, cotton funk, bready yeast, florals, & lavender lead into a dry, spiced finish... Hard to decide between clove or coriander... Maybe both? Highly carbonated, effervescent mouth feel. I’ve heard bad things about this beer so my expectations were low, but it wasn’t bad at all. A nice, enjoyable witbier, would be good on a hot day.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 5-08-2011 (Bottle) This beer pours a medium sized very fizzy white head that mostly diminishes, transparent golden body, fast rising carbonation, and virtually no lacing. The aroma is wheat, fruity, coriander, citrus, sweet, and orange peel. The taste is sweet, citrus, fruity, wheat, and some malt. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is easy to drink, worth trying and somewhat refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours out a clear yellow beer with a big soapy white head. Aroma of citrus, lavender and a slight yeasty funkiness. Flavor has dry sweetness with a short, light bitter dry finish. Lavender definitely shines trough in the flavor, very nice and interesting take on the style.

I really loved this white beer. floral and peaches in the nose, nicely balanced yeasts and a subtle hoppiness with the firmness of an unfiltered wheat/white.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl bottle. It pours a yellow hazy colour with a really huge white soapy foam. Aroma is mostly spicey with loads of lavender and coriander. Flavor is smooth and refreshing, with a big presence of orange peel, lavender and coriander. Smooth and quite overcarbonated. Nothing that a hard pour can’t solve. Overall, a nice beer but not a repeat buy for me.
