AdamChandler (4049) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Acquired in a trade. 2010 batch, bottled in 2012. HUGE gusher. Lost half the bottle. Poured a glass out of it and a minute later, bubbles came out of the bottle again. Never had a half full beer continue to bubble over the neck.

A - Murky plum / amber brown. HUGE head of 10+ fingers had to pour insanely slow. Decent lacing head was purple white.

S - Tart grape skins on the nose, floral and blackberry scents as well. Some breadiness.

T - Nice up front bright raspberry tartness. The middle is an earthy light juicy where the hibiscus comes through. Finish is this very mild cherry and plum taste. Lots of low acid fruits come through and it’s a nice solid drinkable beer.

M - Medium body, tons of carbonation but the mouth feel is great.

O - I like this beer a lot. Drinkable.

Murky, peach-brown in color with a thick frothy head which I swear gives off a pinkish hue atop the beer below. Sour fruit aroma, plenty of funk, hay. Very smooth initially with a bite towards the finish. Berries throughout with sour bananas and a pleasant acidity. Great, but not elite.

MiP (14656) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle, 6.8%. Violent gusher. Very citric aroma, lactic and quite funky. Red wine notes, very complex. Hazy amber colour. Small off-white head. The flavour is not as extreme as the aroma, but nice and powerful. There is a good acid, slightly sharp, but not extreme. Some funk and notes of red vinaigre. Fruity sourness. Not what I would call a saison, more like a sour, but good nonetheless.

Nevalainen (393) - FINLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Hazy light amber color with high white head. Aroma of cherry, fruit. Cherry flauvour, sour taste. Sourish finish. Ok, but too fruity to my taste.

martin00sr (1976) - Haderslev, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle, happy gusher... Cloudy amber, rocky white head. Vinous, funky aroma, sour apples. Sourish, funky flavour, more vinous notes with a good acetic bite.

Bamsen78 (4689) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle @ Rowdy Rebel Revel, Sønderborg. Pours hazy dark amber with rocky, airy but stable off-white head. Clear, vinous aroma with estery notes and malty and hoppy touches. Vinous and hoppy flavour with notes of fruit and malt. Hints of pumpkin and dust. Lingering, sourish aftertaste with bitter and estery hints. Well-balanced and enjoyable.

Wombata (583) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2015
Bottled on 2/11/2012. Color: Brownish orange. Aroma: Floral (Rose comes out as it warms), mineral, musty straw, light cherry, yeast. Palate: Understated, gentle, soft mouth feel. Intense, tingly carbonation. Flavor: Light, soft cherry, floral, Rose, subtle funk, yeast. Finishes with gentle acidity. Comment: very light and delicate flavors in contrast to the more forward and complex and brilliant aroma. It pays to let it air and warm for 20-30 minutes to help bring out the flavor.

Barreras (1419) - 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 (427) - 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.
