fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Cloudy gold pour with a 3 finger, fluffy beige head. Aroma has lots of fruity funky brett, but in a pretty mild way, hay, lots of floral and citrus hops, hints of untoasted oak. Flavor is pretty amazing, nice funk, lots of berry, vinous and citrus notes, sweet cereal, lemon grass, sweet floral notes and just a hint of oak to the finish. Light to medium body with a slightly creamy entry turning juicy from there out to a slightly more dry finish, with some light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation. Really amazing stuff, right up there with my favorite Saisons, possibly the best I have had. Easily the best at hiding a high ABV%.

750 ml bottle. Fairly clear gold pour, couple fingers of fluffy white head, some lacing. Lots in the aroma, flowery / perfume, citrus, peppery spice, vinous notes as well. For me the taste was dominated by the rose hips / flowers, not my favorite. Some funk / tartness is present as well as a slew of others.

reebtogi (5395) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 16, 2016
750ml corked bottle pours a pale golden amber color with a finger and a half of white pillowy head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is red wine grapes with some floral notes and hints of yeast and citrus. Taste is a lemony tartness with a citrus and caramel malty sweetness and a dry red wine finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a flavorful brew that suits the style well and adds a twist with the addition of the rose hips.

b33r (824) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Bright orange hazy color with small white head and nice lacing. Aroma is huge, great vinous nose, with grapes and fruitiness, a bit sour, and grassy yeast. Strong grapey flavor with deep oak notes. Sweet and tart, and almost bit creamy at the end. Not as yeasty of a flavor as I was expecting but very good overall.

60minuteman (1248) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Bottle from Beer Store. Thin-medium bodied saison. Funk, white wine, wheat, floral, spice and citrus notes. Great balance. You would hardly know the alcohol content of this by drinking though the white wine is hinting. Love the flavors. Funky up citrus with floral/spice never tasted so good.

Sampled at a tasting. Hazy orange, with a small white head. Smells of grapes, brett, vanilla and oak. Tastes like brett, slightly sour and of grapefruit and red wine. Dry, with a sour aftertaste.
