Pours a dark orange with a huge heag that is gone rather quickly. Not sure my palate can detect rose bud or hibiscus but regardless it is delicous.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a cloudy ruby with a nice thick fine white head. Great looking beer. Nice aroma of flowers, grapes, herbs, dark fruit. Taste is not overly sour which is probably why I like it since I'm not a sour fan. Flavors of flowers, hibiscus, herbs, vinous, grapes. Crisp effervescent sour tastes on the mouth. Medium bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hotstuff (4284) - Indiana, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Rated on 8-21-2010 at Fort Wayne, IN Gathering. This bottled beer has a small fizzy off-white head that mostly diminishes, transparent amber body, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aromas are funky, floral, sour, and tart. The taste is sweet, floral, funky, fruity, and tart. The palate is soft carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer smells more sour than it tastes which is a good thing for those of us who do not particularly care for sour tasting beers. This beer is worth trying.

DuffMan (7032) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Hazy deep golden pour with a lively white head. Lovely biscuit malts allow delicate,beautiful floral elements to shine. Some subtle spicy notes, mild bretty character and a tartness that doesn’t quite cross into sour territory. The finish is very dry. Fantastic.

superspak (2840) - Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2014
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/10/2013. Massive gusher upon opening, but no lost beer. Took a while to pour it. Pours very hazy reddish orange color with a fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big green apple, pear, cherry, pineapple, lemon zest, rose petal, herbal, floral, grass, clove, light pepper, light caramel, bread, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, flower petal spice, and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of tart green apple, pear, lemon zest, cherry, bread, light caramel, rose petal, herbal, floral, grass, clove, pepper, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of apple, pear, lemon zest, cherry, bread, light caramel, rose petal, herbal, floral, musty funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, flower petal spice, and malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent spiced saison. All around great balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, flower petal spice, and malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle at Øltorget, november 9th 2013. Hazy dark orange body, wildly white head. Fruity aroma with pepper, rosehips, brett, hay. Taste of barnyard, pepper, ripe berries and lactose. Strong fruity finish lovely fruity and zesty aftertaste.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 Been sitting on the bottle a few months so may be a tad behind freshness but wow this was good. Great fruity tart aroma, almost like a sour tea. The light pink head, and there are lots of it, is great and fluffy. Awesome tart berry and herbal taste and pretty smooth palate. The sour isn’t overly powerful, this beer rocks.

Tobiasoe (64) - NORWAY - FEB 5, 2014
Beige, large, persistent head over orange amber beer. Medium plus aroma intensity, malty and herbaceous with tangerine, spice and honey. Smooth palate, my kind of lively carbonation, barely off-dry and lingering midpalate to a decent finish. Floral, dried fruits and herbs, though with a (for me) intrusive medicinal element. Still, a very good, almost great, beer with my burger.

Ferris (5005) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2014
Draft - Sour grape and a bit of grass. Cloudy gold with a bubbly white head. Sour grape, flowery, yeast and booze, sweet and fruity. A refreshing saison, but a bit too sweet for me.
