4.33/5  rDev +24.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a waxed 750 ml bottle into a Surly Darkness Chalice.

Appearance: Pours a deep and hazy copper amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Huge four finger off white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing on the glass.

Smell: On of the strangest and interesting aromas I've smelled. Very floral and herbal with nice fruit esters. Big hints of the lavender flower. Sweet fruity hints of mango, peach, lemons, orange, apricot, and light grapefruit. Sweet hints of the sunflower honey. Dark fruit hints of dates, plum, and raisin. Bready malt presence that gives a biscuity aroma just like a loaf of spiced herb bread. Hints of caramel, yeast, and dough. A really wild and trippy aroma.

Taste: Like the interesting nose hints, a fairly sweet and spicy bready taste with fruit esters. Very floral and herbal upfront with big notes of lavender flowers and sweet sunflower honey. Fruity esters of mango, apricot, peach, lemon, orange, and a little grapefruit. A good dose of dates along with notes of dark plum and raisin. A very malty base with bready flavors that again, taste like a fresh made loaf of spicy herb bread from a bakery. Notes of yeast, biscuit, dough, and a little caramel. Really trippy and good man.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and slightly chewy. Very smooth with no sign of the alcohol. Finishes fairly dry.

Overall: Really out of sight man! Fruity taste but it defies the fruit beer category. Really groovy and interesting spicy bready taste. I dig it.

4.04/5  rDev +16.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 750 mL bottle into tulip.
A: Pours a clear amber hue with 2 inch bubbly off-white head. Good retention...very active carbonation jets continue to feed it. Very faint lacing.
S: Distinct lavender note hits first, then light caramel malt, mildly sweet honey, and a hit of toast/biscuit.
T: Equal parts lavender, honey, and dates seems to hit all at once...takes a bit to sort it out (they are all fairly equal participants). The lavender doesn't dominate and the dates provide a thickening of the backbone...both of which serves the brew very well. Definitely very interesting. I can see where this might not be everyone's cup of tea (or beer as it may), but I quite enjoy it. The lavender provides a nice floral note, the honey a smooth sweetness, and the dates a chewy firmness. It works very, very well for me.
M: Light-medium body. Smooth and sweet throughout. Slightly oily feel.
D: This one was a very pleasant surprise. I wasn't sure what I was getting into with this one. Not very complex...it really is all about the L (Lavender), S (Sunflower honey), and D (Dates). But the end result is a well-balanced brew that just works. A tip of the cap to Indeed.

3.64/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A- Apricot colored, very clear. Head is one finger and doesn't last long.
S- The lavender notes are pretty noticeable. Smells a bit like a lighter Belgian pale. Definitely sweet.
T- Complex notes in this one, but not quite the right balance. It has a sweet amber ale or Belgian base, and the honey is definitely in there. The dates also are apparent, but I would have liked a bit more of that and a bit less lavender. By the end of the glass, it was a bit wearing on the palate.
M- Sweet, somewhat sticky. I would have liked more carbonation. This beer is a sweet, slow drinker, so by the end of the glass it feels heavy and stickier than it should.
O- An interesting beer, I'm glad I had once, but a 12 oz pour is about all I need.
