Where and when: purchased 2/28/09 at Major Market, Escondido, CA
Scent: my wife said it best: "This smells like soap." It does, indeed, smell like lavender.
Color: Almost clear, ever-so-slightly purplish.
Taste: Like the other Dry Soda Co. I reviewed (Lemongrass), this is not very sweet. The acid from the carbonation and phosphoric acid comes through strongly, but there is a very strong lavender essence. It's not cloying, though. The lavender is slightly sweet, with a bit of herbal bitter. It is what it says it is, and that is bubbly lavender-scented water with a bit of sugar. It's an interesting novelty, but the lemongrass was more interesting. This is a bit more drinkable, though. It is getting better the more of it I drink. Toward the end of the bottle, I'm getting into it.
I might buy this again.
