On tap at Max's during Baltimore Beer Week.

The beer pours a solid gold color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose I get considerable honey, vanilla, and a hint of the lavendar as well. The flavor profile replicates the nose, though there is more hoppy bitterness on the finish than I expected. Also, the mouthfeel is fairly lean, which is something I typically associate with a Belgian IPA. Otherwise, this is a pretty solid Belgian style ale, with the hoppy bitterness balancing the moderate sweeetness quite well.

A nice enough beer, though nothing really earth shattering. Sort of think SN should maybe focus their efforts elsewhere. (652 characters)

On tap at West End Tavern in Boulder, CO. This beer is supposedly due to collaboration between SN and this bar's owner. Just had a 4 oz sample.

A: Hazy light amber with a one finger head with decent retention. Not much in the way of lacing.

S: Mild smell of honey, lavender and small amount of oat.

T: Like a lavender pale ale. Smooth progression from honey/lavender sweet into hoppy bitterness. Leaves a sweet taste behind. Very unique and quite tasty.

M: The other reviewer said it well...this feels like an IPA. It finishes very smooth with very little alcohol feel despite its 9% ABV. Due to the lavender, not particularly drinkable, however.

O: A good beer, but its success is more based on novelty than quality. This isn't a beer you drink by the pint (4 oz was plenty) or that you could really enjoy with food. For what it is - a quirky limited run ale - a success, but as a staple, eh. (901 characters)
