750mL courtesy of Travlr via SeaBass. Pours a dirty/hazy orange with a thin beige head that has big bubbles/little retention/no lace. Sweet, musty, stale fruit aroma. Taste is boozy, spicy, dry, a little weird. Not much wild character.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - APR 3, 2010
Cha-ching! I knew that this was more of a saison, despite being called a dubbel at the tasting. Amber with a frothy head. Lots of fruit and bret in the aroma, with a lemon-like acidity. The flavor is dry, but maintains a candy-caramel sweetness as well, and has lots of tangy fruit flavors. Light bodied with high carbonation. This was good right now, but I think some time in the bottle might give this a lot of character

Sort of bland actually, some light citrus, caramel, toffee. Medium body is soft with gentle carbonation. The hibiscus flowers come through in the finish.

This beer pours beautifully, with pink and gold hues. The aroma is enticing, and with no disappointment. This is a beer I would gladly revisit anytime. This is an earthy, floral, farmhouse style ale that is a pleasure to drink.
