mathieuc (2285) - Québec, Quebec, - JAN 24, 2013
Huge gusher upon opening, hopefully there was some left to be split 2-way. Pours murky brown with a nice and creamy white head. Smell is semi-funky with a hint of sourness detected. Nothing I could clearly point out as coming from the rose or hibiscus but still a bit of perfume here and there. Taste is mildly tart and fruity. Flavors are reminescent of La Roja but maybe a little subdued. A really nice saison still, a mighty fine one I would say!

Barreras (1295) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Pours an amber color with a boiled fruit aroma. Taste is a good mixture of sour fruit and mild sweetness. A champagne like fruit flavor, recognizable hibiscus and flower petals taste. A good dry aftertaste, with a little tickly bubbles.

lownote (327) - USA - AUG 17, 2015
Pours a cloudy red and brown with lots of white bubbly head. Aroma is very herby. I Def smell the hibiscus. I?m not sure I could id rosehips, tbh. Smells great. Really rich flavor. Towards dry, but body is medium. A bit tart in a berry fruit way. Good, complex. A bit intense. I prefer my saisons to be more drinkable.

ctipping (286) - Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2015
750 mL bottle poured into a cervoise. Hazy red body. Nice white head. Almost smells fruity. Mostly floral. Light acidity. Strong yeast flavor. Floral flavors behind it lend some sweetness. Slightest hint of tartness dies down quickly. Light body with high carbonation. Not bad, but not very exciting.

Dogbrick (9651) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2015
This beer is a bright reddish-orange color with a thick white head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, florals and yeast. Medium body with flavors of fruity yeast, hibiscus and biscuit malt. The finish is floral and fruity with an herbal yeast aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

02.23.2012 bottle, poured on 05.30.2015. Heavy ruby with a golden white frothy head. The aroma is the Jolly Pumpkin funk, the taste of rose petals is there, but is almost cherry like. Very great with age. Just wow.
