3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on tap the brewpub (Madison, WI). Pours a reddish pink hue, glowing with a touch of haze, bigger frothy offwhite head stays as a good film, laces well. Aromas are mellow tart Hibiscus, florals, bread, and mellow sweet malts. Initial is medium bodied, cool and inviting with gentle florals, touches of tart Hibiscus, some bread dough, more tartness, a touch of lemon, faint spice. Really inviting and easy going. Into the backend, more florals and dry bread, touches of spice, a touch of hops. A bit of a one trick pony, some decent life.. But then falls off. Ok.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub. Interesting dark, cherry red color. Drinks with a super sweet, the cherry fruit isn’t quite the upfront character, but it’s in there. The little herbal twist makes this more interesting and drinkable than many beers who flirt with this kinda thing. Quite drinkable. (#5129, 7/3/2013)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Received sneak preview of the Hibiscus Saison two days before release, cask drawn at the Vintage brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear dark copper colored brew with a creamy off-white head that leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma screams "farmhouse saison" period. Additional aroma of elderberries, toasted dark malt, a touch of apple and hibiscus petals. Taste is very floral and fruity with less medicinal character compared to aroma. Finish has a quick smooth aftertaste with some elderberry, saison yeast, and then a crisp finish. Most excellent.
