COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Champagne like, rich berry aromas, lead into silky flavours of cranberry, blackcurrant and cherry, giving way to a mango nectar. The beautifully balanced finish is dry and refreshingly tart.

Beautiful deep clear red/brown, claret like colour. Sweet fruit aroma with a possble earthy note. Surprisingly full mouthfeel considering its a saison. Flavour dominated by complex sweetish berry fruit esters followed by a tart dry finish. Who’d a thought that dried hibiscus flowers would give a result like this. Very good.

On tap at the Tipplers Tap. Deep red in colour with a very rich fruity aroma, flavours of black current and cherry. Quite strong at 10.3% (on tap), could have come out like medicine but the witch doctors at Bacchus have made another great beer.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Mostly red with a hint of pink. Aroma is full of hibiscus, very nectar-like, sweet and floral. Sweet, fairly strong hibiscus taste, and a bit sticky. If if wasn’t for the sweet malts and low carbonation this could be one of those Mexican jamaica sodas.

5L keg from craftbrewer in capalaba. Beautiful deep red colour with a strong flavour of jam. Deliciously sweet head and aftertaste. Hibiscus is generally a strong, overwhelming taste but Bacchus have found a good balance here. A very interesting take on a classic saison.

On tap at Archive. Poured a bright red to pink with a thin white head. Berry aromas and a tart finish but I think this missed the mark a bit. Tasted like creaming soda.
