Bottle from Hill Farmstead. Pours brown with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Nice horseblanket notes balanced by the hibiscus on the nose and tongue. Has some lemon notes on the finish. Very quaffable. stef73 (691) - Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2017
De couleur framboise avec peu everfesssance, on n'a des notes de citron et hibiscus. En bouche c est une belle acidité avec le hibiscus c est un surette à la fois et on une pointe de citron . C est une bonne bière . RichTheVillan (8298) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2017

Bottle pour. Pours a dark rose color. Lightly sour on the nose. Light bodied with yeasty, sour finish. A little funky. Light and crisp though. Nice. Maakun (6543) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2017
Bottle shared, 2015 vintage. Bit hazy golden with soft pink hue and big fizzy white head. Some tiny floaters. Lots of Brett, soft lemon, Rooibos, flowers, rosebuds, soft spicy yeast, bread crust, what I guess is hibiscus. Under medium sour and light sweet, with a lingering tannic bitterness throughout. Medium bodied with soft but fizzy carbonation. Quite dry. Very nice. Svartvit (967) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2017

Medium sweet, light sour, dry finish. Medium body, medium carbonation. sjogro (4841) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2017
Shared from bottle at Maakun’s. Hazy copper/orange/pale amber with white head and active bubbles. Some happy little chunks dancing around in my glass. Floral up front, spices, herbes, grass, almond spice, rust, rooibos, licorice root. Light sweet and bitter. About medium body and soft carbonation. Feels light and thin, thoroughly but soft carbonated. skrip (230) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2017
750ml bottle poured into a Dogfish snifter
A~ hazy copper with minimal head and slight lacing.
S~ very floral with pepper notes, followed by some citrusy saison goodness!
T~ slight lemony tartness followed by lite orange and pepper on the finish. i’m a little disappointed, the hibiscus dosen’t come out so much, but its still pretty tasty. i’m a little picky when it comes to floral brews, too much is just right lol.
M~ very carbonated! finishing with the slight tartness.
O~ pretty good saison, definitely not my favorite Grassroots project but definitely worth a shot if you have the opportunity. honestly Wachu Saison has way more hibiscus in the flavor and i don’t believe its actually brewed with any flowers. Wachu also seems to be more relatively available, definitely pick up a few bottles of it! even though it always seems to have a pretty hefty price tag. ok... yeah i got off topic lol...
