375ml bottle served in a tulip. Poured a hazy gold with a couple of fingers of white head. Plenty of carbonation. Yeasty aroma with some Belgian spice. Light bodied, dry with a crisp finish. Bit of spice on the finish. Solid saison, but nothing mindblowing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Visual: Pours pale golden orage with a smallish lasting 2mm head, decent fine micro retention, clusters of very fast active streams.
Nose: yeasty wheat malt sour funk, cotton candy/hibiscus, red field berries. (lvl-8)-pungency
Mid-palate: brightness, hints of chamomile, (lvl-5-sweetness), toffee-toasty barley malt, dissipating short sour-tangy
Finish: bready honey, gentle wheat malt roughness, very subtle bitter hops
Summary: Wow this is a fantastic spice/herb beer. Super sippable, seamless transitions, good complexity and depth along with a smooth mouthfeel. Every sip offers a different texture/taste depending on what you focus on. Although it was a bit $$$, I’m glad I tried it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is fresh, lemony and a bit spicy. Taste seems slightly tart at first but it isn’t, just a bit astringent. It’s mostly spicy, yeasty and slightly bitter on the finish. Body is medium-light with high effervescence. Overall I don’t like it very much, the spices are a bit too strong, the body too light and there is some residual sweetness that doesn’t integrate very well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375 ml. bottle shared with my Boo; from Liquor Barn (Springhurst). Aroma: Moderate lemon peel with light wildflower presence balanced by a little musty basement. Appearance: Opaque yellow gold pour with a foamy white tuft that settles into a firm skin. Flavor: Musty and floral notes are more prevalent up front, but in a more muted way. Lemon comes in more midway through, and takes on an unexpected honey character; the finish is semi-dry and endures a bit. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Not a world beater, but a nice enough one to try either way. Not sure what hibiscus does here.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating #1176 13.07.2014 - Bottle from CBI. Pours the colour of a bubbly golden ale with a white foam that bubbles away quickly. Aroma is orange zest, and hibiscus flower. Extremely floral and potent. This floral sweetness lingers into the finish and is slightly overpowering. Cool tropical, floral beer.
I tried it with the song playing - i don’t feel it added to aromatic or palate experience but it’s a fun concept.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange/gold pour with a decent puffy white head. Wheaty, herby, floral and yeasty notes. Taste is wheat-beerish, yeasty, slightly sour, floral (which I assume is hibiscus, don’t think I’ve ever tasted it though). Finishes with that sour yeasty note. I don’t love it but it’s interesting I guess.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bue en bouteille de 37.5 ou 50 cl ? Bref le format de base.
Couleur blonde, peu de mousse et peu d’effervescence.
Grosse attaque sur la fleur blanche au nez, sensation de douce effluves d’hibiscus.
Attaque en goût sur la même teneur que le nez avec une pointe de malt caramélisée. Juste un bon équilibre pour une bière bien ronde en bouche.
