4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. Pours a cloudy dark copper to amber body with a wispy film of off-white head. The nose is pretty great, tons of fresh floral notes, especially hibiscus, balanced with a slight earthiness from the yeast. A slight sweetness. Smells like a spring hike in the mountains. The flavor is soft and subtle with lots of flowery notes, balanced nicely with light earthiness and yeast. Spicy lingering finish. Light to medium bodied, a bit heavy for a Saison, but not crazy. Fine fizzy prickly carbonation. Pretty great flower Saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a slightly hazy copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Spotty lacing on the glass. Floral aroma with fruit and yeast notes. Light to medium body with flavors of peppery yeast, biscuit malt and fruit. The finish is fruity with a floral and herbal aftertaste. Decent overall.

Tasted on 6/8/2012 at SAVOR 2012. Aroma is very flowery. Taste is solid for a saison, but the flowers overpower. Okay.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a hazy, dark golden color. There was almost no head and no lacing. The aroma is nice. A little yeasty and breadiness to the nose. Some flowery notes, as well as some faint fruits. The taste is very good. Medium bodied. Malts, some spice and pepper as well as floral tastes are in there. A bit yeasty and bready. Very nice!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. When I had this, it was listed as a Saison, but whatever. Aroma was a confusion of sappy Belgian yeast and some soap-like florals. A little heavy. Pour is a lightly clouded pale brown-amber, with a soapy head. Flavors bounce around a bit. Florals, soap, belgian yeast, some yeast products that give a strong sensation of residual sweetness and then maybe some lingering maltose. I wanted to love this, but found it a bit off the mark and sloppy.
