Tart, Refreshing, great color. Love the dryness and perfect amount of acid. Highly drinkable

With more and more saisons taking on the rustic and ancient type of sourness, that high acidity can be quite polarizing and off-putting to some. However the delicate use of hibiscus, flower and herb gives this sourish farmhouse ale a friendlier and more jovial approach.

And that approachable side starts with the beer's beautiful faint ruby glow that caps with a soapy swath of foam. Tangy fruit aromas set the tide as the scent apple cider, rose wine, corkish must and white grape. Its sharply acidic taste easily overcomes the short backbone of wafer-thin breadiness and slight confectioner's sugar.

With its malt character continuing to recede and the fruit, flower and sourness gaining further control, the body also ascends on dryness for a decidedly wine-like middle. Peps of rice-wine vinegar, crabapple, lemon sourness and limey bitterness come to play delicately on the finish. All the while, an aura of flowery bouquet wafts above the palate and act in more retro-olfactry fashion.

Its light and dry body sides with wine as much as beer as its finish of white pepper and acidity pop with effervescence and highlight the beer's floral and fauna as much in texture as it does in taste, buffered only by light velvety slickness of flower pedal. An aftertaste of wheat returns to usher the rose and hibiscus character into a pleasant afterglow.

Appealing murky red color, white lacing.

Mostly a citrus herbal nose, with some unpleasant ketchup.

Dry but sour flavor, none of unplesant aromas come through in the flavor.

Satisfyingly full mouthfeel.

Overall a super tasty beer.
