Inspired by the spice markets of Egypt, the saison/ farmhouse ale takes a worldly and unique twist through the addition of hibiscus petals in both brewing and cold-conditioning stages. Lovely pink in color, with a cherry-blossom pink crown of foam, our Hibiscus Saison is as beguiling as it looks. Slightly fruity, tart, somewhat earthy, and with a refreshing dry finish; wine lovers and beer lovers may find happy common ground here!

Tap @ Vintage with nuplastikk. Pours a hazy orange appearance with a khaki head. Quite floral, zesty citrusy, a bit tangy nose. Moderately sweet, floral, grassy, citrusy flavor. Not my favorite.

TheAlum (6487) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2011
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.

On tap at the brewery, pours a hazy ruby red with some creamy, white head. Nose is floral with some distinct berry notes, fresh currants, a little cherry, herbal tea. Flavor has some fresh red berry, a light peppery note, some honey sweetness. Dry finish with just a prick on the tongue. Solid.

Braudog (6066) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2013
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)

Tap at the brewery - lightly pink pour - fairly simplistic - ligtly tart, with the.adjunct fairly prominent - little to no character from the yeast, aside from a light spice - crisp, tart finish - eh.

Skyview (5360) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2011
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.
