750ml bottle poured into HF stemmed glass.

A- Pours a reddish orange with about a finger of head that recedes to a quarter of a finger, has great retention, and leaves nice layered lacing. Tons of tiny carbonation bubbles brilliantly streaming towards the top of the glass with very nice consistency.

S- Floral hibiscus, oranges, acidic lemons, saison yeast. All the aromas meld beautifully together and has a distinct clean, crisp but tart smelling HF aroma from the saison yeast and well water. This actually might be one of my favorite smelling HF beers.

T- Oranges, lemon acidity, tart saison yeast, honey, finishes with hibiscus petals, a light tartness and a lingering fruitiness of oranges, lemons, a bit of hibiscus, and maybe some strawberries. Quite complex for a saison and very tasty.

M- Crisp, refreshing, easy drinking, fairly light, nice lightly tingly carbonation, typical HF saison feel.

O- Wow this beer was fantastic. Right up there with all the other HF saisons, maybe even slightly better. I think this might tie with Anna as being my favorite. I highly recommend checking this out if you like HF saisons, you will not be disappointed.

A: Hazy golden beer with a touch of red accent. A nice small white head.
S: Smells of hibiscus. Very floral, peppery and citrus (orange/lemon) followed by the classic earthy saison yeast. Lots of citrus actually, smells a bit lactic.
T: Sweet malts and hibiscus tea flavors at first. Has a bit of lemon acidity that blends well with the sweetness. Has a sweet, almost honey-like flavor blended with some fruitiness that is imparted by the hibiscus. Bright floral flavors follow until it ends with a dry and crisp lemony tartness.
M: Light bodied with low carbonation. Very drinkable.
O: This is another excellent saison from HF/Grassroots. Very nice beer, hope they make it again soon.

Bottle (2013)

Thanks, baconsausage!

Glowing golden and orange. Persistent but not a huge near-white head of moderately-sized bubbles. A sticky saison. Slight haziness, especially on the later pours. All in all, this is quite pretty and very appropriate for the style.

Fantastic aroma. Huge amounts of white fruit and citrus components in the aroma: lemon and lime, mild orange, and good amounts of pear, and a little bit of sour apple. Mild funk, earth, and just a bit of a dried grass character, but the lemon and lime component with the citrus element is the highlight of this beer's aroma. It reminds me quite a bit of a Fantome offerings and many Crooked Stave examples, which are both very good things in my book.

The flavor is just as good as the aroma. Wonderful balance of citrus and white fruit flavors with an interesting, earthy, grassy yeast, and just a tiny bit of malt. Just a bit of biscuit. Complete, incredibly flavors.

Medium bodied with moderate to near-high carbonation.

Fantastic. I've enjoyed this more and more each time I've tried it. If anyone wants to send me more, feel free to contact me lol.
