Bottle. Gushers! Smells like beets, and vegetables. Pours a slightly murky rust color. Minimal head. Taste odd, not as flavorful as I though it would be. Sweet, that raisins stand out. The booze shows a bit. Just ok.

Not sure what they were going for here but it definitely didn’t have me seeing double rainbows, but rather blacking out....

Hazy rosy color, no real head. Smells like a fruity cleaning fluid. No. Medicine. Tastes like medicine too. Rubber? Tires and tart cherries present. Surprisingly smooth.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Thanks BeerandBlues2. Cloudy garnet pour. Nose holds huge spice, cherry bubblegum. Flavor is far too reminiscent of cough syrup with sickening fake cherry. Ugh.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Grapefruit color, thin white ring, lightly oily appearance. Nose is heavy ethanol, bubblegum esters, tomato and celery, sage. Medicinal flavor is ultra sweet, bit of prune and alcohol, apple cider finish with a slick body. What a confusing, nasty mess.

75cl bottle, thanks BeerandBlues2. Smells and tastes like a mixture of house cleaner. Slightly fruity with a lot of booze. Not a fan.

Toffee and floor cleaner aroma with strawberry. The taste is very sweet, lots of apple juice and cherry, light strawberry and banana.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
750mL thanks to beerandblues2. The pour is a hazy deep reddish blood orange. Fizzy, peach head looks like soda as it diminishes. Nose is super perfumey, chamomile explosion, super intense sage and rosemary. More like honey herbal tea. Not bad but overwhelming. Feels too chemical. Taste is not good- bland, alcoholic, perfume oil. Nearly medicinal but not sticky. Like drinking perfumey rose water. Not bad.....but not really beer and certainly not a saison especially at 14% my god.

Sampled at the DC gathering at GT’s place. Thanks Brad! Pours a rich clear amber with small ring of head. Floral and perfumy nose and while it doesn’t ’smell’ like alcohol, there is a faint ’burning of the nosehairs’ when sniffed. Flavor of honey and apple and lavendar and lots of spices like allspice and grains of paradise. Warming sensations but not overly boozy, which is quite surprising. Very good.
