On tap. Pours with a lightly hazed orange to golden hued body with a retentive white head. Aromas are grainy, straw, light dried fruit, mild acidic, floral or funky a bit. Citrus peel, blood orange, ginger and medium phenol. Almost a bit vinous. Flavors show a bit of a soft funky quality, medium phenol, grainy, mild acidity, hibiscus, vinous, herbal, lightly citrusy. Lower carbonation that I would have liked to see, but otherwise quite a tasty beer.

Tasted from a friend’s growler -- don’t know what was going on, but it smelled very odd, tasted pretty bad and was completely flat.

Flowery and a touch spicy on the nose. Definite hibiscus in the taste. A bit earthy. Nice mouthfeel and not as funky as some saisons. Nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at City Beer. A more or less red one, clear, and with a small off-white head. Butterscotch notes in the aroma, with some sweetness and dried fruits. Very soft on the palate, semi dry and pleasantly carbonated. Some butterscotch in the flavor too, with prunes, dried apricots and some anise notes. Finishes more or less like it starts. Not my kind of raison, that’s for sure. 130805
