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.

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.
