Bottle - Sour peach with a bit of yeast. Cloudy gold with a thin head. Yeast and funky peach. Sweet and funky. wchesser (2068) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2014
At Avery Sour Fest. Pretty pink. Nose is grass, roses, and jasmine/elder flowers. Vegetal taste with some red berry fruit, but mostly roses. Interesting, but like drinking rose water and kind of tiring. Godofthecellar (677) - NYC, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Flora nose and taste, tea, herbal notes with a mild citrus juice after taste. Has aged well DrewFace (967) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle share thanks to Homer321. pours a hazy dark orange color. Tart, brett, hoppy, semisweet aroma. Initially tartness, semi sweet, light malty character, follows with a bit more tart and a moderate hop bitterness. Homer321 (5000) - Melboring, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle. Nose is grassy. Cloudy light red. Taste is literally like flowers and shrubs. Pretty fan tasty. Floral. Yup. Just like drinking flowers.

Pours a barely translucent dark amber with an eggshell head. Hoppy aroma has notes of rose and a hint of sour fruit. Sour flavor has rose and hoppy notes, and is not overly tart, just enough to be pleasant. Smooth, fairly firm texture is fairly fizzy. Rose hip beer?

375mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a cloudy, opaque dark-ish orange with a medium off-white head. Nose brings out lots of oak barrels, some brett, lots of the flowers and hibiscus, and some vinous qualities. Flavour brings out the wine barrels and oak upfront, followed by hibiscus, flowers, and some bretty notes. An oaky vinous tartness on the finish. The barrel aging is the more prominent component compared to the hibiscus, rose hops and elder flowers, though the latter additions certainly add some nice subtleties. Carbonation is on the higher side, without being champagne-like. Excellent beer. parktravis (10) - - JAN 1, 2014
Nicely aged wild ale. Bountiful floral flavor. Easy to drink. Clean on the palate. Great beer. harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Pours a lovely rosy apricot ale with a sheet of bone white foam. Smells of mmmm, elderflowers, rosehips, some lemon zest, a little funk, some grapefruit pith and a little bit of hay. Tastes of baking soda, more floral tones, tart, some metal, a hint of ammonia and chalk. Flavor does not match the nose for me. A touch of peppercorn and the elderflower emerges as it warms. Body is really empty with low carb and a wet finish. This was a nice smelling beer, but the flavor did not deliver with the assertiveness the aroma produced. It was lacking in the body department as well.
