4.5/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this

Consumed 2/18/14

Appearance: Pours with a huge, fluffy, off-white head - burnt orange in color, with some nice orange and red tones - fades to a solid cap, leaves some great lacing, quite pretty overall

Smell: Great saison funk and an unexpected abundance of fruit - I will admit that I couldn't identify hibiscus from a line up, but I'm going to assume the awesome floral aroma here is thanks to the hibiscus - nice level of citrus with a nice level of lemon, lemon flesh, and a vague hint of orange - very floral with some nice light fruits - nice depth to the funk - some pepper, earth, and some light tartness - nicely acidic - only gets better as is warms

Taste: Charming balance between typical saison flavors and bright fruit - big floral flavors, with a lot of fruit - lemons, oranges, and some other fruity esters including apple and pear - some fruits that seem like they shouldn't even be in here, like strawberries - nice level of funk, with some pepper, clove, and general weirdness, and some tart - nicely complex

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely smooth, oddly refreshing, finishes dry and clean

Overall: Hooray for "hibiscuits"

This is a nice saison that benefits from the use of hibiscus in some unexpected ways. It's nicely floral, fruity, and nicely complex. It's hard not to have high expectations for any beer associated with Hill Farmstead... And this exceeded expectations.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a bottle into a tulip.

A: Pours with a full head with small to medium-sized bubbles. The beer has a slighty hazy, amber/dark orange hue.

S: Bretty funk, lemon and berries.

T: Lemon and raspberry again. A balance between acidic and juicy flavors.

O: Really great. Refreshing for a hot afternoon. Hope they make this again.
