The brown brew is a four cask blend of various lots with a pinch of elderflower and lavender, yielding a beer showing delicate balance. Beer for the thinker. 6%

Pour out of 750 ml bottle, thanks to Bill for the pour! Hazy red pour with white head, aroma brings lavender, hints of oak, earth, slight grass, bread, hints of caramel, touch of slight acetone.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Bill. Thanks man! Pour is hazy orange-amber with a small tan head and good lacing. Big herbal, lavender, vanilla, soapy, flower petals, grassy, and medicinal aroma. Taste is tart herbs, vanilla, cherry pie, big lavender, lacto, light fruits, orange peel, straw, and hay with a lightly tart/bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Really cool flower beer. I dig it.

Bottle @ Stephen’s house. Thanks Bill! Pours a bit hazy reddish orange appearance with a tan head. Heavy lavender in the nose. Juicy hibiscus, citrusy aroma with some vanilla. Strange but really cool aroma. Nice mouth feel. Slight cola flavor with a bunch of citrus and floral notes. Lightly tart. Pretty fucken cool.

750ml bottle. 57 of 62. Thanks to Todd again of course... Pours like an oud bruin. Semi-transparent almond brown hue and topped with a pale fluffy beige head... Aroma of gin and florals. Nutty cherry aspects come into play with more of the gin floral presence taking precedence. Bit of nuttiness... Sour sweet earthy cherry base and gin a cents altogether. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. Another scent addition to the series.

750mL thanks to Brainlair. Pours full haze muddy maroon. Slow gusher. Effervescent head. Yellowish with yeast cinnamon powder from yeast sediment. Wispy lacing. Nose is chamomile, green tea, lavender, dried orange peel, very herbal, maple. Taste is tart, lemon juice, minerally, some currant/cranberry. Palate is salty, minerally, spicy. Very nice. I like it. Had mixed reviews at our tasting. I love this style of beer like Cuvée des Fleurs and Stillwater Cellar Door. Very sour lemony palate.
