From tap to nonic pint glass at Jackie O's on 8/26/11 & 8/27/11
*From notes

A: It looks like a Sam Adams Boston Lager: clean rustic amber. A one finger head fade quickly and moderate lacing follows.

S: Wow - there's enough lavender on the nose to plant a garden. The smoke is present, but it's more of a supporting player to the fresh herbal qualities.

T: What a crazy and insanely delicious beer! Again, the lavender is all over this thing like Jackson Pollock on a canvas. Seriously, if you're not a lavender fan (which I most certainly am), then steer clear. As the herbaceous profile fades, the smokiness begins taking hold of the back palate. And it's certainly smokey at that, yet expertly balanced by a deft hand.

M: Bubbly - it suits the refreshing nature of the beer. It's not too thick and cloying, rather gets in, out and over just in time for your next sip.

O: In a weekend that featured 33 beers on tap, my Pops and I had more of this then anything else. And this coming from a guy (me) who loathes smoke/rauchbiers!

This amazing creation was the talk of the bottle release weekend, and I simply could not get enough of this heavenly stuff. I really hope Brad keeps this one in heavy rotation, as I'll need an IV next time.

Light brown, minimal head.

Aroma of lightly smoked ham, bacon, wood. Taste follows through, with a little wheat.

Feel is slightly fizzy, light. Not too smoky, unusual, could maybe be a Funky Buddha rival if more substantial, not that that would make it better.

Received in a 4 oz. taster glass.

3.5 A: Orange amber color. Came without a head.

4.0 S: Smells as advertised. Superbly sausagy. Tons of lavender, caraway, and other assorted spices. Smokiness and toasty after that. I didn't pick up much maple though. Super herbal.

3.0 T: Herb overload. I love what they are doing with this, but I'm just not a huge fan of herbal beers. Big smokiness, lavender, herbs, toasty.

3.5 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a light creaminess.

3.5 D: This is unique through and through and vastly different that anything else that I've ever had. This is a must try if you visit JO's and it's on-tap.

Irresponsible Tick #4

Good old fashioned amber - quite clear. Small bruise of a head. Dear aroma - whatcha doing? Lots of lavender, like something you'd get mom for Mother's Day. Spot of maple works well - not too sweet. Just a touch of smoke with a spicy sausage bent. Spicy. Excellent aroma. Lavender doesn't translate as pleasantly to taste. Maple and puffs of smoke. Random spices. Medium body with a thinner feel. Moderate carbonation. Maple/floral finish.

A really good concept! I think it just a needs a little less lavender and a slightly stronger malt base.
