Bottle - Sweet lavender and vanilla notes. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. A touch herbal with some vanilla notes. Not bad.

Metalchopz (3384) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2016
Purchased at the brewery on my trip to Nova Scotia. Pours a hazed, light-golden colour with a huge frothy white head, very long lasting with soapy lace. Spicy aromas with some pine, floral notes and decent soft yeast. The taste has a little more of the lavender, hints of wood, with good grain in the finish and again, some decent spices. Kind of pie-like. Some light sweetness from the honey lingering. An interesting floral sweet brew. Nice to try once.

Bomber shared by Christine. Hazy deep golden with a thin white head. Definitely sweet, moderately floral, a little almost spicy, medium-ish body, quite full, rounded carbonation, quite a bit more floral in mouth vs nose, dry with gentle bitterness and a perfumed, floral finish. Interesting.

[6123-20140117] Bottle. Honeycomb sweet tea aroma has a bit of a spiced floral note. Clear, orange body with a quick foamy white head. Honeyed floral flavour has a spiced note. Medium body. Interesting but strange. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2-

Poured from 500mL bottle. Obviously a strong lavender aroma, unfortunately it makes me think of soap. Appearance is a cloudy golden colour with a white head. Has medium sweet taste that lingers. A medium body, with oily texture, and average carbonation. The finish is strong with honey with a bit of lavender. Not a bad brew, but a bit heavy on the honey for me.

A very nice brew indeed. Pours a hazy peach with a big white head. Aroma is of apples, banana, honey, and lavender of course. Tastes of honey, wheat, citrus, and lavender. Has a medium smooth body with average carbonation and a nice lemon aftertaste. This beer is very refreshing and lives up to its name.

BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
I had this from a cask for the PEI Beer Festival. I don’t know the stats for the cask version but it was rather tasty. Certainly lives up to its moniker with both smell and taste. There is also some nice wheat, wood and basement going on with a light sourness, likely owing to the cask conditioning. Very enjoyable.

plaugher (478) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
500ml into an English pint. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with lively carbonation, minor lacing, and a light white head. Nose of cinnamon and apple, and a bit of flowery notes. Sickly sweet apple and honey flavour, very sticky on the palate; lingering sweetness. Not my cup of tea.

jercraigs (10365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2014
2014-01-17. Lightly hazy orange body small head. Aroma of honey and lavender as billed. Flavour is similar, sweet honey and floral lavendar character through, mild lingering sweet malt in the finish. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Not particularly complex, you pretty much get the flavours as described. Cellared bottle shared by Big Red

Thanks gethinbeer. Pale orange-gold with a nice white head. The aroma has a lovely light lavender aroma along with a light whiff of cinnamon spice and some honey. Light oxidation seems to be here as well that I could do without. A little bit of spicy wheat malt and a bit of lingering floral flavour. The lavender really comes through on the back. Low to moderate bitterness but the honey character also comes out. It’s a pretty nice beer really - but I’ve always been a sucker for lavender.
