This was a shock to me, I hate Saisons normally. This one stands out, i get the berry in it and an obvious but not over done floral character to it that adds a unique but once again subtle aroma, obviously from the rose hips and hibiscus. The flavors, I get a dark or maybe burnt sugar and caramel note, Berry presence, I taste the rose hips, has a couple stout like attributes in the body of it and the flavors. Damn, is it smooth too, dangerously easy to drink, light but present carbonation.
Overall, not normally my thing, but I really enjoyed this. I will go get some for myself now!
