Caitlin DeClercq created her Honey Beeís Lavender Wheat with dried lavender petals, giving it a fragrant but soft aroma. A citrus tartness and slight sweetness from the honey and vanilla balance out the finish in this California residentís brew, perfect to sip while kicking back and relaxing.

Aroma has a definite lavender overtone to it that is quite pleasing, sweet honey backing with some hop texture poking their way through the others. Appearance is a clear golden with the thick frothy white head that lingers. Taste is interesting a bit astringent, the lavender comes through on the taste as well, sweet, lightly hoppy, and definite floral overtones. Palate is medium to low carbonation in the mouth, aftertaste is rather clean and just a little dry. Overall, Smells wonderful but Iím just not digging the taste and mouth feel. Decent.. Cheers!

12 oz. bottle from Caponeís. Pours clear canary with frothy white head that laces well. Nose is lavendar, citrus, honey, heavy black peppery florals. Tastes sweet, bready pale malty, with notes of honey, lavendar florals, spicy peppery, and hops. Very good recipe here, and technically sound, and I love the experimental factor.

Odd beer sampling. Golden/ yellow pour with a bread / honey aroma. The flavor was sweet, mild pine and yeast. It was interesting. I donít this one won.
