COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison brewed with rosemary, rose hips, honey and aged on pink peppercorns (~8.0%)

Like its namesake flower, our Rose is both delicate and thorny. Floral honey, rosehips, and rosemary mingle with fruity pink peppercorns to create a refreshing earthiness. Bold rye malts and a spirited yeast strain enhance the beer’s prickly spice. Hazy and golden, Rose sips with a rich, savory charm.

Re-release. 16oz can from CBC, dated 07/12/17. Pours reddish copper with a light beige head. Aroma is wood, pepper, rose. Flavor is slight caramel, rose, pepper. So, it's a standard Saison, slightly sweeter and with rose. Meh.

Marheb (5902) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Un liquide hyper effervescent qui ne se calme jamais. Des effluve de fines herbes et de céréales croquants dominent le nez et en bouche le miel vient aiguiser le maltose. Le poivre vient se déposer durement sur le romarin déjà trop présent. Correct sans plus.

ScipioA (405) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Pours out hazy orange/brown with a huge tan head that sticks around a long time. Immediate veggie/spicy notes to the aroma, the rosemary is especially evident. Flavor adds in some funk alongside estery yeast flavors, but the aftertaste is sort of an unpleasant over-spiced sensation. Fairly thick body that finishes very dry. Somewhat tasty, but don’t think I would buy it again.

Bottle; Pour is cloudy golden with a pillow top head into this glass. It retains well, with chunky lace present - The nose is herbal - you can sense feint sweetness as well - florals round it out ,with a mineral note present. The flavor profile is hardly delicate, though I get what they’re saying ; there’s delicate components in this brew. Unfortunately the "prickly spice" as stated dominates - theres a harshness to the flavor profile that I truly wish was more rounded by softer drinkability for the style. Peppery spicing, florals, yet mild belgian notes as this is supposed to be a saison - lemon grass and the rosemary do come through here as well. It is a nice overall experience, though

SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
Tap. Semisweet candied hibiscus. Dry earthy pronounced rose pedals essence. Unique beer. Bit of a lemonzest twang mixed with a peculiar Bit of a perfumey lip stick. Weird. Dry. Would prefer lower boost though booze is hidden. Not really my thing.

radarsock (1204) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2014
UPDATED: APR 3, 2014 Had on tap at the source. $2.50 for the 4 oz. serving. To undersized snifter, it pours a partly cloudy orangeade with which a thin, whitish-ringed head 1 finger in length stood. Tastes and smells of rose hips, Belgian yeast, rye malt, cornmeal, toasted breadcrumbs, spruce tips, and wheat grain. Floury, tea-like, and heftily floral. Worth the money paid, but not particularly interesting. Definitely had a waterier saison base. I didn’t really mind the herbaceous characteristics of this beer. I did however think it ranged more in the one-dimensional, though.
