A~ hazy glowing orange with a crazy thick head. it almost looks like an ice cream float.
S~ very floral, peppercorn, bready yeast, and slightly tart.
T~ whoa! lots of hibiscus right up front. peppercorn, passion fruit, pineapple follow closely. finishes off with a nice tartness from the brett.
M~ very carbonated, smooth, and all around refreshing!
O~ i always love an amazing saison and this is right up there with some of the best HF’s. if you really enjoy floral beers and teas like i do you will love this! it also reminds me of Fantome Saison but with hibiscus rather than jasmine and replace the smokeyness of the Fantome with brett. mmm...! how could you beat that! kayres (888) - , Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2015
Slightly hazy golden orange with a
Thin white head. Sweet spivey aroma. Very strange sweet then dry herbal flavor. Odd

Bottle at home. Pours golden, nose is lemon, pineapple, spiced, taste is similar, bretty. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Gusher ! Pours a hazy straw color with a billowing white foam. Lots of rustic earthy pepper, hint of citrus, barnyard must. Foggy grain with lots of yeast character and aggressive carbonation. Musky dry saison, easy drinker but I feel its a bit past its prime at this point. Yorker (2021) - Herning, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2014
33 cl bottle @ home (WARNING: gusher!). Pours hazy golden with a little sediment and a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are brett, leather, spices, and herbs - with a dry finish.

Bottle. Entered this on my iPad and it suggested "Watching Samson". "What a great name for a beer", I thought, as I corrected the auto-correct and poured this beer, which came up as fountain as I had opened it. Hazy orange as an...well, orange, I guess. Off white lovely head. Aroma is packed with impressions: yuzu fruit, pepper, herbs and spices, dirt and a little bit of sweet, morning fart. One of my own that is...which makes it a good thing. The spiciness of this beer is massive. The aroma is full of good stuff as well. Lots of pepper. Yuzu is there as well adding a fruity sweetness and ditto hint of sourness to it. Ends in a solid, earthy bitterness with a taste of pepper on the tongue. Wonderful beer which I could drink a lot of and would love to store all year long for myself and guests. Or maybe just for myself depending of stock. jkwood04 (5452) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 18, 2014
11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a big, white head. Aroma of light tartness, some spicy yeast, some fruits, light pepper, and a nice pale malt character. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad but not like what I now know Grassroots to make. Countbeer (6591) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: BB 2012:
Almost foamy gusher. Massive foam in glass and also finally in bottle...
When it’s all settled: a medium sized vast thick creamy snowy white foamy head on top of a beautiful hazy dark yellow to more hazy orange colored beer.
Aromas are a lovely mix of spices, yeast/brett, wood, flowers, some soap, some fruit, some vanilla and sweeter floral/light herbal tones. Awesome aroma!
Flavours of spices, some white pepper, cloves, other spices, bitters, fruits (yellow and orange), citrus, peach, orange, wood, yeast/brett, some manure, some hops, some flowers and a crispy leave/grass tone.
Aftertaste is a mix of wood, spices, yeast/brett, malts and herbs.
Low to medium carbo, silky creamy mouthfeel, full bodied and a thick creamy texture.
One hell of an awesome beer! merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2013
