COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A kaleidoscopic combination of Lavender, Sunflower Honey, and Dates set the stage for a mind-bending beer experience as delicate floral aromas dance atop rich notes of fruit, and honey. Conceived by our head brewer, Josh Bischoff, LSD was originally produced by the Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery where it received a medal at the Great American Beer Festival in 2011. (7.2 ABV, 20 IBU)

Honey gold with small head. Very floral lavender aroma; quite unique. Taste - you really can taste all three parts. The earthy flowery lavender isn't subtle followed by the sweet honey and dark fruit. Certainly unique but so perfumey that after one, you're ready to move on. Still, I like the attempt and it is pleasurable for a short time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lavender hits first, before an almost cinnamon-like spice. Mulled cider. Sunflower honey offers a spicy note that offsets the flowers. Nice interplay, becomes almost herbal in the flavor, reminding of spicy rosemary or anise. Dark amber honey. A little alcohol warmth, lingering tea-like quality. Dry finish.

Lavender on the nose and some lemonade. Lots of honey. Lemon shake up. Tastes like something that would be in a tea flavor. Not bad for what it is. But it is tiring

Dark gold color with a medium head. Pungeant floral and perfume laden aroma. Some hints of honey sweetness. Thick and chewy fruit flavor. Strong date and pitted fruit. Powerful lavender. Definitely a love it or hate it beer.

Bottle shared with northropfrye. The oak and lavender and honey is all just amazing. Itís full of depth, itís refreshing, surprising and transports me to another place. Its about the best beer I can imagine right now. Loved it!

Very unique beer. Orange body, foamy off white head, nice retention and lacing. Thereís a gum in Canada called "Thills" and thatís what this smells like. Soapy, floral, herbal, a touch of dried fruit. Taste is semi-sweet, also a touch floral and soapy with a faint bitter finish. Very unusual, and while itís not mind-blowing I do think that, overall it was a success.

On draft at the Indeed taproom. Pale amber in colour with moderate carbonation. Lots of lavender and other florals upfront in the nose, followed by a brown spice kick. The spice element is more immediate on the palate, and is followed by a honeyed date element. Interesting and complex, but I get the impression that the flavors havenít married yet. Difficult to rate.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big honey, lemongrass, earth into lots of herbal, minty notes, touch of floral notes as well with a slight biscuity note. Taste was big on the honey, grass, lemon, some hints of earth into flowers, herbal notes, some biscuit, finishing sweet.
