Sampled on draft at the Harmony Inn this beer poured a cloudy vibrant golden color with a large fluffy orange-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet lavender, honey and bread. The flavor was sweet honey, golden fruit, bread, lavender and bergamot. Medium length finish. Lavender grows. Moderately full bodied and smooth. Interesting.

Draft at brewfest. Pours golden with a thin white head. Big Lavender on the nose. I love lavender anyway and this quite fragrant. There's some solid lavender on the tongue as well but it's a bit one note although it's a good note. Finished clean. Pretty solid offering.

Had 13 beer flight on a beautiful custom wood flight. Beers overall were solid and the service was great. Nothing extraordinary overall with flight, but most palatable and easy to drink. A few unique beers with honey and lavender. Individual beers as follows:
Worth your weight in gold: Lager taste, slight malty feel, plenty of flavor for a yellow clear beer. Nice lager.
Slippery rock Dew: Thick in the mouth, honey flavor readily present, fresh and refreshing
Station 33:Crisp, caramel malts, simple but enjoyable
Mcleods Eva: Smooth, sweet at the end. Light and watery for a malty beer. Less overwhelming, good or bad, then many in the same style
Squirel Nut Brown: Good rendition for the style
Amber waves of grain: Can really taste the caramel malts. Drinkable.
Simcoe Pale Ale: Smells like a christmas treee. Would be nice with a big dinner to cleanse the pallate between bites.
Paleo IPA: average IPA
Frias Porter: Good flavor bute falls a little short. Root beer flavor at the end
Stonehouse stout: On nitro. Guiness feel in the mouth but a bit more boring.
Fruit bowl: neat idea, apricot flavor this go around, great summer beer
Lavender Abbey: Strong aroma and flavor. Lavender hits you in the face. Polarizing experience. cheap (6087) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Looks like a cloudy hefe. Does have a mild beldgy yeast aroma, can’t smell any lavender in there. Weird yeasty effect on the palate initially. YEs, that beldgy yeast thing I think is a little overdone. Not quite as refined as the real belgian abbeys but a good try. Some mild sizzle. Finish is a little less than expected.
