drjay44 (3248) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2016
750 ml bottle. Bottled March 31st 2016. 7% ABV per the label. Pours a thick, gradually reducing, pinkish white head, with some lacing, over a hazy pink amber (SRM 13) body........nose is floral hibiscus, ginger, light malts, minimal hops......taste is slightly sweet with heavy hibiscus tones, light ginger, finishing with hints of hop bitterness, and light pepper......mouth feel, sticky, light of medium body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation with nice acid notes. This is a very floral, soft, pleasant beer to drink. It is a bit muddled in flavors, as the hibiscus and spice do bang together. Additionally, rating it as a Saison, it misses the style quite badly and could use an almost total recipe rework. BJCP 5/2/10/4/5

On tap at the brewery. Bright, light reddish appearance with a white head. The aroma is hibiscus, floral, earthy, herbal and yeasty. Similar flavor, adding light to mild spice and bitterness with light sweetness and some fruity berry notes. Medium body with a hint of tartness at the finish. Nice appearance, pretty decent saison overall.

Initial is lighter end of of the fold, medium bodied overall with tart hibiscus, florals, bready malts. Gentle yeast, some mellow spice.

Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a clear ruby pink with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of hibiscus with flora and light fruit backed by a bit of Belgian yeast. Flavor is similar with hibiscus that is joined by light fruit and finishes with a perfumey note of floral and Belgian yeast.

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange-pinkish glow with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of nice berry, tart and bitter skins, hints of floral notes start to come through with a decent hibiscus note, some slight funk and fruit flavors come through as well. Taste was nice, fruity berries mix well into rose, hibiscus, some slight earthy tones into a sweet ester middle, slight biscuit notes finish with a slight funk.
