Sampled at the brewery. Pours hazy golden/amber with an off-white head. Aroma of rose, caramel and pale malts, light tartness, some pepper, and spices. Flavor the same. Average texture. A good beer.

The aroma is fantastic a mixture of rosemary Rose pepper and sour almost lambic like. The appearance is quite lovely, hazy pink with sparkling carbonation. Flavor matches aroma but with a stronger sour note. Overall inspiring beer.

Big thanks to jswattsrugger for bringing the growler of this little Gem to Des Moines.
The beer pours a golden color with a medium head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is yogurt, and spices... particularly floral and the peppercorns are presented very nicely.
The flavor is very tart, but never crosses the line into a full on sourness. There is a nice presentation of both the light tart apple character of the rose hips and the spicy & floral character of the pink peppercornss. .Earthy & a little bit oaky with a lot of tart fruitiness.

Thanks for sharing jcwattsrugger. From a growler. Deep gold with a bright white head. Notes of sour lemons and flowers. There is a bit of a sweet character. A leathery sweet tasting brew with oranges and tart Granny Smith apples. There is also a black pepper spice in the finish. Light, tart and refreshing. Most certainly interesting. More like a tame Berliner than a saison. This is one that sucks you in and wants you to keep drinking.

Growler from Brewery. Pours a reddish light copper color with a finger of foam. Aroma is tart, floral, herbaceous and sweet fruit. The palate has some nice tart acid that really helps this beer tremendously by cutting through the round floral somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Great flavor profile with traces of melon rind, floral, citrus and a touch of honeyed sweetness. Nice faint rosemary notes in the mid palate are well integrated as well.. just a trace of peppercorn on the finish with a little basement funk too. Nice Beer.

Lots of spicy peppercorn up front with a rose/lavender flavor in there. In the middle the rosemary kicks in with constant spicy peppercorn floating in and out. Ends with a flourish of honey and some fading roses. Lingering aftertaste is of bitter peppercorn and rye

Pouring at Belgian Beer Fest. Pours a hazed orange amber with a thin white head. Big rose, floral, soft acid. Medium bodied, tart, herbal, sweet rose petals. Lots of herbal tones, floral, no pepper. Sweet, floral, long musk, bright acid into a strong herbal bitterness. Too much going on.
