5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle: † Very floral and spicy beer. † Strong hibiscus, lavender, and chamomile. † Feels authentic, not soapy or artificial, but its a bit strong. † Pretty airy carbonation. † Outside of that, pretty one dimensional with just a strong floral aspect. † Does start to get a little urinal cake like as it warms up. † Tiz okay, but wished it were more citrusy and bright instead of an overwhelming strong floral aspect.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head. A big floral and spicy nose. Pretty intense flavor: raisin, yeast, loads of spices, herbs. Round and pretty easygoing. I enjoyed it.

5-10-13 From bomber @ Scottís house- Interesting herbal flavor, definitely detecting lavender among other herbs. After reading description, one can pick the flavors out. 8.6 BD 4Scott- nice floral bouquet with bitter tartness

750ml bottle. Pours a dark cola brown with a large light cream head which leaves a nice 1/2 inch layer all the way down. Aroma is very herbal/floral, with the lavender really being the prominent smell. Hints of spice & chamomile come through, along with a hint of liquorice/anise, some dark fruit and Belgian yeast. The taste comes across similar to a cheap, stores-own name cola, especially given the high carbonation present. Very herbal in flavour, spicy, fruity, anise, some dark chocolate, too. Interesting, complex flavours, which kinda blend together. Medium bodied with a sticky texture, fizzy lively carbonation, giving a long, bitter, spicy drying finish. An interesting beer, but the cheap cola flavour keeps nagging at me.

jgb9348 (4486) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Super dark brown coloured body with a thick, four centimetre tall slightly soapy light brown head - nice and odd looking at the same time. Aroma of grass, yeast, wheat, flowers (hence the name), lemons, curacao, coriander seed and a bunch of roasted malt. Medium-bodied; Assertive spicey flavour with pungent lavender and violet noticeable, a little coriander seed, some lemon and orange peel and a lot of roasted malt flavours. Aftertaste is where it gets really complex, odd and flavourful - from pungent spices to some alcohol, malt, yeast, chocolate, hay, flowers and even chalk shows up here - strong, but nice and different. Overall, a dark saison that shows a lot of complexity and some interesting flavour profiles that you donít get often. I canít say that it works perfectly, but it is very nice to try, especially back here on the East. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Made in Oregon (PDX Airport, Terminal D Location) in Portland, Oregon on 28-April-2013 for US$11.95 sampled at home in Washington on 18-July-2013.

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
Pours dark brown, fluffy off-white/beige head. Nose is lavender, some dark fruit and pepper. Flavour is more lavender, not sure if I could really pick out the chamomile or hibiscus, but probably the spiciness came largely from there. This is a nice desert beer to be shared between several people, absolutely not a session beer, splitting it between two we found it a bit soapy at the end. Cool though.

reebtogi (3828) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
750ml capped bottle pours a dark amber color with a 3 finger white head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is very herbal with some floral notes. Taste is a herbal bitterness with some light malty sweetness. An interesting brew which is one that you either like it or hate it. I liked it due to its uniqueness.

DeanF (1628) - Nunavut, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
Has a dark brown body with a purplish tinge, white head with that same purply thing going on. Aroma is lots of barley with swampwater and herbs - definitely the lavender and rosemary coming through. The beer is an interesting mix and the heavy lavender flavouring was off-putting at first; this ainít one for chugging. Itís unique though and very sippable. However, quite frankly, I wouldnít want to try it again.
