look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Cloudy burnt orange with moderate off-white head.

Smell: Lavender galore, with some mead and light fruitiness (dates?).

Taste: Strong mead base, with crazy lavender all over the top. There is a very light sweet core that I guess is the dates, but the lavender and honey are dominant. Herbal finish.

Feel: Moderate carbonation, light mead-like body, surprisingly dry finish.

Overall: This is much, much than I ever would have expected. While Indeed calls this a Honey Ale, I have dubbed it the Lavender Beer. Never would have thought that would be good.

By the way, the 1 star "had" is why I wish everyone had to actually write a review, instead of just lazily saying they hate it.

L: Hazy amber, finely bubbled head, 2” off white with a slight orange tinted foam cap, collapses to a thick film, ¼” – ½” inches.
S: Opens with a definite lavender, honey and date nose – the honey is sunflower honey, very floral smelling beer and the scent carries.
T: Honey, lavender, dates over bread, biscuit – several layers.
F: Very creamy smooth, soft in the mouth, with a medium body and carbonation.
O: An unusual beer but refreshing and very drinkable.

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.

Slightly hazy amber color with two fingers of head that slowly settled to a thin cap. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

The aroma is certainly interesting. Dates being the most prominent with lavender and honey giving off floral hints. A bready malt base gives a solid foundation.

This is a really dry tasting beer. There are dates in the front end of the flavor with a potent floral finish. Hardly any sweetness to be found. The honey must of been well fermented out as I get just the slightest hint that it is there at all.

Light to medium body with a somewhat low carbonation. I would of liked a little bit more life from this beer.

Better crafted than a lot of fruit beers. Was not entirely successful to me, but a worthwhile consumption.

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.
