750mL bottle, pours a cloudy, murky brownish orange with a small white head. Aroma is almost that of a cider, tart apples, tons of flowers, some tartness, very interesting. Flavour is quite tart, with sour apple cider, more fruity than floral, though the flowers no doubt create these flavours, and a slight vinegary character. Finishes slightly tart and fruity. What a weird beer this is - kind of fun, though containing none of the traditional saison characteristics - not rustic, funky, yeasty or anything. A fun experiment, but becomes quite difficult to drink after a while.

Bomber. Split with me. Pours dark hazy golden. Nose is lavender, lemon, honey, orange. Taste is lavender up front, with lemon and honey - almost like a Ricola, vanilla, caramel.

7.7% Bottle. Cloudy amber beer. Light lemon and flowers nose. Quite low carbonation in the light palate. A little dry. Sweet complex beer. There is a light perfume sweetness from the various flowers and a bitterish aftertaste I think from the Lavender. The chamomile and rose are seamlessly blended. Finishes neutral palate with more floral sweetness. Unique and highly enjoyable.

Bottle sampled at Ottawa tasting #2. Hazy gold with a generous enough white head. Cardomon, lemon zest, light pepper, ginger, grains, oddly a bit of rosemary (nose might have been off by this point though), some honey and a earthy undertone. Medium body and moderate carbonation, felt light compared to the ABV but it was quite nice, little dry at the end and the floral and spice notes linger on the palate. Glad I got to try this.

Gription79 (2408) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Poured from a 750ml bottle. A cloudy straw color. Lots of herbal and spicy notes. A soft tartness that helps showcase the floral and herbal character of this beer. I liked this beer very much.

750 ml bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a huge rocky eggshell head that leaves heavy lace. Floral notes, sweet bready malts, lemon, grass, toast, and earth. Medium-bodied, with a mildly spicy, floral, clean mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really nice saison, right up my alley.

Bottle with a big thanks to phaleslu. Notes of dry toasted grass, soft rain, forest. Nice. Earthy, herbal, soft, clean saison. Nice.

Bottle. I have looked forward to this for a while as it waited in the cellar. The pour is a slightly hazy orange with a pretty decent head. Aromas are a little off-putting, with a lot of floral and spicy tones and a heavy handed sweetness. Flavor is an odd mess that just isnt for me. A hot mess of alcohol, cloyingly sweet honey and herbal and floral stuff all. Im not sure if it is the sweetness, or the herbal and floral disaster or what, but Im just not very pleased with this beer.

cfrancis (2612) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2012
Pours cloudy gold with a big frothy white head. Aroma is grain, yeast and floral hop. Taste is a great blend of grain, floral hop that is soft and yeast with spring notes.
