UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Lightly hazy yellow body. Large white frothy head, good lacing. Nose is generally floral and citric. Of the ingredients, only the rose character comes through individually. Flavor is similar, with a nice pleasant floral and lemony character. Medium to light bodied, mellow carbonation, clean finish.

Herbal, floral, spicy, yeasty. This was a fun and complex saison. A bit sweet in the middle but drys out. A touch of the rye but it is mostly just for fun. Real nice. Side-note. The night I was here (tonight) it was selling a ridiculous amount. THe owner said it was selling better now than it ever had before and was usually a middle of the road offering. Not sure if that means anything but it was definitely ON tonight.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The saison pours hazy golden with a light amber hue. The aroma brings herbal sweet and floral notes from the 5 Rs and some wild-like saison yeast. The flavor brings flowers, rhubarb fruity notes, and the saison yeast. The body is solid, not overbearing or syrupy, just right on.
