Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a slightly cloudy yellow color (no red tinge at all) with a medium sized soapy white head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was tart vague citrus and apple. The flavor was tart and tangy wood, apple and a touch of perfume. Long tangy and fruity finish. Medium body. Ok.
This poured an almost ruby red color with a beige head. Aroma was of yeast, light earthy notes, and some sort of flower insense. Flavor was light spice, fruity yeasty character, and potpouri. I think the rose hips could have been left out in this one and it would have been a bit better. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Hazy yellow gold, no head. Clove, corriander white flower and banana on the nose. More banana and clove as well as lemon curd and rose on a round, rich palate. Very good. jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Tap at CBW, really unoffensive offering, I guess if you ever wanted a Saison this would be a perfectly fine offering. Slight pepper/spice note, not as pronounce as others.. a lighter straw taste that is nicely present but not overbearing.
