I had high hopes for this one, and came away disappointed. The initial pour was pretty, grapefruit pink with a crisp head, but the effervescence totally disappeared within a minute or two. The nose had a bit of a barnyard sour smell to it, although notes of yeast and urine became apparent a the longer it say out. Taste was underwhelming, muddled tropical fruit, slightly bitter, and not particularly assertive. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 75 cl. Pours a hazy, reddish amber with an off-white head. Amazingly funky nose with a bery-like fruitiness underneath. Medium body, lively carbonation, yeasty, vitamins, lactic with a dry finish. Perhaps the nose promises a little more than the beer actually delivers. 010914

Hibiscus color, little white head. Nice citrus aroma. Tart and a bit funky, a bit herbal. Some strong oak in the finish.

Lukaduke (2153) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Pours a slightly rosey orange color with two finger of fizzy white foam. Nose has some low tide funk, lime zest, rustic grain and some hints of horsehair and floral grass. Palate follows the nose but is less funky. Bright carbonation with layers of rustic grain some lime acidity and lingering tea like earthiness that draws out the finish into a slightly bitter melon rind finish.

Travlr (11269) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Clear dark golden color, amber head. Amazing mango aroma with dusty peach, fresh haystack. Taste is white pepper, straw, lemongrass, fruit. Very nice.

slowrunner77 (809) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Pinkish hue. Wonderful aroma and soft dry bretty flavor. The hibiscus and lime add an extra dimension to an already very good beer (seems like Arctic Saison is the base before the fruit and flowers were added). Floral and funky...dug it.

M82 (277) - Kansas, USA - AUG 15, 2014
A softly hazed, glowing body in the vermillion-tomato-bittersweet color range which reverberates with low intensity into a bright one inch, delicate, frothy head which settles to an incomplete ring with a few dots and globs of lace distributed over a low-lying horizontal peninsula of lace

Light, whimsical, earthy-tropical brett nuances float over glowing hibiscus lined with lime which circles back to emphasize the dank earth wild yeast influence on a compact, silky smooth medium-light body offering solid amounts of soft carbonation and a moderate coating of previously mentioned flavor dynamics spiraling through several cycles before completely fading

750ml cork and cage Batch 1 November 2013, purchased from shelf in March 2014, cellared at 55°, served at 45° and warming into 16oz Orrefors Beer Taster

planky84 (2105) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle at RBESG, 2014’s Grand Tasting at the Moncada Brewery. Pink pour with a white head. Earthy-fruity nose with a splash of rhubarb. Flavours of rhubarb, lime and stewed apple. Tasty stuff.
