Honey, cinnamon, floral, dough. Clear honey gold. Not a lot of lavender but there is some. Smooth with some effervescence. Light bodied. Floral. Earthy finish. Cinnamon and some other spice. It's okay. Not bad. Easy drinking. Just kinda there.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark gold with a faint, quick-dissipating, off-white head. Nose is lavender, phenols, patchouli, and faint notes of berries and stone fruit. On the tongue -- it’s just sort of there. Yes, it’s a floral wit, but it’s one-dimensional and unexciting. All the richness normally found in lavender has been diluted into an insipid floral tinge, and the wit itself isn’t great. It’s not bad, it’s not offensive, but it’s certainly forgettable, and it could have been so much more. Interesting idea, boring beer.

(bottle) clear, orange colour with a small, beige head; aroma of sourness, mustiness, hint of lavender; balanced, refreshing, if simple flavour with a long, light sour finish

rougeau13 (3195) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Muddy yellow-orange with a smallish off-white head. Aroma of candy, wheat, citrus, and yes, lavender. Taste is floral and a little bit sweeter than I’d have hoped with a bit of yeast. Fairly light bodied, slick, and slightly bubbly. The lavender is nice.

Mid copper body, with a thin lace ring around the edge. Aroma of wet hay and malts. The lavender is a no show in the aroma department but shows in the flavor along with some clove and bubble gum.

Clear gold with a short-lived white head. Lavender is obvious in the aroma and taste. Seems more like a wheat ale than a wit.

dlihcsnatas (781) - Temple, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Dark gold almost amber brew that appears too clear to be a wit but did find a lot of sediment stuck to the bottom of the bottle so guess that is where the haze is hiding. Darker in color than most wheat brews I have had but that may be due to the lavender. Smells of wheat and flowers and the taste has a definite lavender hit followed by a more traditional wit flavor. Really interesting brew with a really good flavor. Plan to get some more of this before it’s all gone.

Cloudy orange pour. Fluffy head that leaves fast. Aroma is lovely floral and estery notes. Taste is peppery and floral. Lavender is very mild. Overall its good. I might buy a sixer for summer

3.1
DrunkSanta410 (972) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle from Kroger. Pours a slightly hazy Amber. Fast dissipating head. Aroma is wheat, spice, yeast. Saison esque. Very faint lavender. Taste is spice, yeast, faint lavender. Light body and mouthfeel. Average carbonation. Not much lavender for being a lavender beer.

Poured medium heavy urine color with a short lived head. Very faint in the mouth. Not very wit like.
