COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An experimental summer beer that starts off in a saison direction with oats and wheat but steeped with hibiscus and chamomile. Then the beer is "dry flowered" with more hibiscus, chamomile, and sterling hops. Floraison is robed with pinkish & orangish hues and gives a bouquet of floral, spicy, tea-like aromas and flavors.

On tap @ Monkish. Red/amber pour with a white head. Nose is very, very floral. Lots of hibiscus and chamomile. Tons of pepper, rose, and tart apple esters. Hints of pear and bread. Flavor is kind of tea-like. Hibiscus, chamomile, rose, and pepper, too. Apple, pear, yeast, and some sweet malt. Light tartness on the finish.

8/18/13: Draft. Pink color with a fluffy creamy white head. Aroma is earthy, pressed fragrant flowers tea, cat pee, cotton balls. Flavor is a delicious mixture of peppery yeast and crisp tartness, over a soft-feel body. Fun and effective.

Aroma is mild on this beautifully red hued saison but the taste has a lovely herbal/fruit/tea quality that is very tasty and then becomes very dry. Quite the change from initial taste to the back of the palate.

On tap at Beachwood and later at the brewery. Pours with a crystal clear, reddish tinted body with a white head. Aromas are floral, grainy, bready and estery. Peppery, strong chamomile, rose water, low phenols. Flavors are just south of overpowering chamomile tea (which I like, so it isn’t an issue), bready, malty, low phenol, moderate ester. Lots of tea like qualities. Light tartness. Lively bubbles, dry. Good, but the spices are a touch strong.

(Draught) Pours a clear glowing orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of chamomile, hibiscus, caramel, and nuts. Flavor of chamomile, grass, hibiscus, yeast, citrus, and caramel with a moderately dry finish.
