On tap at 20th Vermont Brewers Festival. This was one of my favourite at the festival. A rose hued brown with a pinkish head. Tannins, cherry, malt, defnite hibiscus, acidic, fresh, sour. Full body, mild carbonation, smooth, dry, tart, bit of farmhouse, delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a pinkish hue at the edges and topped off by a small layer of white foam that quickly fades a to a thin film. The aroma is very floral showing notes of flowers, hibiscus, and rose hips to go with some sour fruit, vinous oak, and tart notes from the Brett. The flavor follows and shows a melody of floral characters from the rose hips and hibiscus to go with the vinous oak barrels, light sour fruit, some funk from the yeast, and a light tartness overall. Really tasty and refreshing with the floral notes. Medium bodied with ample carbonation that leads to a lengthy tart, fruity and floral finish. Really easy to drink and a really nice sour ale overall. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes. Tasted some time near the summer of 2012 from a capped 375mL bottle. Pours hazy pink/orange with an average white head that leaves average lacing. The nose is sour and floral with a spicy hibiscus aroma. The flavor is more floral, spicy, and bitter than on the nose, and has just a touch of tartness. The body is light with average carbonation, some oak tannin, and a long lightly sour and very floral, touch of bitter finish.

This beer here, this beer I had @ the Grand Tasting... Courtesy of some kind soul.
Pours a hazy orange with a small head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is earthy with some nice funk and some rosewater.
The flavor is tart and oaky, really enjoyable and decidedly floral with some bright and bitter flower character.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12.7 oz bottle courtesy of jimsal27. Thanks. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small white head that quickly fizzes away to nothing. The aroma features a lot of perfume and some urinal cake type stuff. The taste is somewhat funky with Belgian yeasts, flowers and rock candy. The palate is light but effective and the carbonation is soft. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Well made, but just not my cup-o-tea.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Super cloudy orange body with a gray & beige tinted foam that settles on top. Aroma includes honey, slightly tart fruit, mild vinous white grape, apple skins, a handful of grass, & lightly pungent floral essence. Taste hits with tart green apple & white grape up front, leading into some notable vinous oak, giving off that wine-like character halfway through. The finish shows more grassy & floral notes, ending quite dry. A nice, easy drinker with a pleasant tartness that I wasn’t expecting.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
At Avery Sour Fest. Pretty pink. Nose is grass, roses, and jasmine/elder flowers. Vegetal taste with some red berry fruit, but mostly roses. Interesting, but like drinking rose water and kind of tiring.
