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)

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.

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.

Bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a golden orange color with a small head.

The aroma is suntan lotion, some coconut... floral stuff. I mean itís nicer than Iím making it sound, but yíknow it still smells like suntan lotion.

The flavor is bright and the bitterness from the lavender is pretty mild. Itís got some bitter orange peel thing happening, itís spicy and floral, itís real weird but it comes up just shy of tasting like soap, which is more than can be said for most lavender beers, so thatís fine. Itís actually interesting and decently well balanced.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear orangeish light amber with a short lived white head. Aroma is lavender, fruits, sugar. Flavor is honey, sugar, toasty, dates, dry fruits, grapes. Finish is lavender, caramel. Lingering honey, caramel and lavender. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, average carbonation. Odd, but not bad at all.

This is perhaps the most interesting beer Iíve ever tried. Very strong aroma of lavender and has the flavor of rosemary. Sip to enjoy in its entirety. At first the herbal nature of the beer was a bit strong but it grew on me and if youíre looking for a beer that is adventurous and unique it is definitely worth a try.

Bomber. Deep amber color with a thin off-white head. Strong lavender, honey, floral and watered down cola. Taste has a light floral quality. Body is lighter with a creamy feel. Seems unique, but smells more like a bath product than a beer.

22oz bottle shared by Melanie. Pours a medium amber with plenty of white head and lacing. Aroma is lavender-forward, with some muted spicy malts in the background. The aroma works well, staying on the correct side of being too soapy or perfumy. The taste is also lavender, but now itís getting a little too soapy. I poured maybe 5 oz of this and it took me a while to finish. A sipper for sure. Interesting and different, but nothing Iíd buy again.
