On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a dark amber with a medium tan head. Aroma brings out loads of spices and grains, with notes of chamomile and rye-like grains. Flavour is very spicy and oddly pleasing, with chamomile, spelt / rye, and some lightly tart herbal notes. I’m not usually one for weird spiced beers like this, but I quite enjoyed this. Well-designed and cohesive.

"Dug the combo of florals going in here - one of my favorite commons brews. Chamomile hibiscus and lavender in equal measure with a farmhouse yeast. Light and refreshing but with a lot going on."

Theydon_Bois (9960) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2014
Keg at the brewery, 09/11/14. Extremely dark mahogany brown with a moderate light tan spotting and edgework. Nose is dark fruit rinds, earthy, barnyard, spice, biscuit. Taste comprises marjoram, spice, dark fruit rinds, ginger tinge, herbals. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid work.

Thanks to nate321 for this one! Pour is dark brown with a medium offwhite head that leaves some lacing. Nose really hits you with lavender and it is pretty much all you can smell so I’d say that aromas are: perfume, flowers and a little spice. Taste is lightly tart and not really bitter, in line with the aroma. I mean, it is fruity with some kind of red fruit aspect to it (raspberries?) but basically it is just more perfume and maybe some coriander at the end. Carbonation was moderate, body light. A bit weird but pretty bang on for a lavender dark farmhouse ale. Fun!

sulawang (644) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
Visual: Pours dark cola brown with a crazy massive foamy head, great retention, lots of super fast streams here and there. Nose: super floral bouquet of lavender and chamomile. (lvl-9)-pungency Attack: creamy-fizzy crisp mouthfeel Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) lavender, cola malts, chamomile Finish: light burpy, hibiscus, medium sourness, malty subtly hopped bittersweet finish. Summary: Wow, wickedly unique with a great visual pour. The lavender flavour comes out surprisingly clean and harmonizes well with the Saison style. Worth a try. My kind of whimsical beer.

czar (4688) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
bottle shared by mathieuc, thanks dude! pours hazy / cloudy pale brown, orange-red tint, with an aerial light beige head, good retention and lacing. roasted / toasted wheat, lightly tart red fruits, perfumey lavender and chamomile - a soapy non-off-flavour / aroma, mint, spicy cloves and cinnamon, brown sugar / dark candi without any residual sugars really. lively carbonation, light body, dry and a bit astringent grassy-very spicy finish. unconvincing blend of flowers and dark malts.

5000 (6299) - 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.

douglas88 (6336) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2013
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.

fiulijn (15360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Dark brown color, almost black, with compact brownish head. Tastes like a soapy Stout; there are some roasted malts, a minty touch, rosemary, sage, soap.
Not very pleasant. The beer soul has been twisted too much.
