Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 1/2013.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour and tart with malt and grain aromas. Taste is much the same with mildly sour flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Thanks to Mark for sharing, and to Dan for hosting :thumbup:
Quick review from written notes.

Color has a slight reddish pink tint from the hibiscus most likely, fairly cloudy with a thin web by skim of foam across the surface, no lacing visible.

Lemon and passionfruit aroma, fruit forward.

Taste is tart and fruity, fruit forward lemon and passionfruit impressions again. Signature HF yeast. Crisp feel with a dry finish. Overall very drinkable.

Golden-yellow pour, hazy, with a big fluff of white head that settled to a thick ringlet and coated the glass with lacing. Nice floral aroma, citrus and stone fruit essence, peppery spice and a slight earthiness. Floral taste as well, peach and orange blossom, some spicy and funky elements seemingly coming from the yeast, slight tartness on the tongue. Crisp and clean, light-medium body, and very enjoyable overall.

From 05/19/14 notes. Had this during the mega-BCS tasting as a break from all the stout. 750ml bottle poured into my Lost Abby stemware.

a - Pours a hazy pinkish-orange color with two fingers of fluffy bright white head and high carbonation evident. Looks cool, a nice color.

s - Smells of sour dark fruits, brett, hibiscus, earthy notes, floral hops, citrus, lemon zest, berries, sour wine, and jam. Very nice nose, sour and fruity, like it a lot.

t - Tastes of sour berries and dark fruits, jam, brett, citrus hops, oranges, fruity malts, spice, floral hops, earthy malts, oak, lemon, and wine. More dark fruits than the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Acedic and easy to drink.

o - Overall a very nice wild ale; lots of brett, sour dark fruits, and citrus mixing together. Easy to drink, would love to have it again.

Thanks to sideshowe for sharing.

Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with dark tangerine edges and a frothy, massive 2.5/3 finger head that very slowly fades into a thick, lasting ring.  Great retention, only slowly fading into a lasting ring that leaves large chunks and streaks of soapy lace behind.

Floral, slightly earthy aroma with lots of juicy topical fruit notes, farmhouse funk, flower petal, pale malt and zesty spice.   Tons of citrus, notably blood orange, mango, orange peel and lemon zest but the floral notes still stand out.  Would never guess hibiscus but there's a very prominent floral character.  Slightly musty and funky with hints of straw, farmhouse, grass, musty bugs and peppery spice.   There's some bready yeast and  lemon pith in the nose as well.  Really complex!  

Full bodied with soft carbonation and a decent balance of oak, wild funky bugs, citrus fruit, bread and pale malt.  Incredibly complex with subtle pepper and coriander flavor followed by musty brett, wild yeast.  Floral pale malt and sweet citrus toward the finish balance things really nicely.  Slight creamy texture with some biscuit, flower petal and a ton of citrus swetness.  Some lemon pith followed by strong notes of curaçao, blood orange and tangerine.  Really well balanced with no noticeable ABV making it insanely drinkable.

750 mL bottle, thanks for delivering to my door Thorpes!

So, you know how Fantome makes a grip of beers under random labels, where it isn't always clear what the difference of one from another is? This is a good version of one of those.

Pours a glowing, hazed rust amber with a thick, fluffy off white head. Good retention, fades to a thin layer and clumps of lace. Aroma of the woodlands, tart and lemon, grassy, hibiscus petal, pine, peach, Starburst, and seriously, this smells like a Fantome. Flavor adds a little acidity to the mix and a stronger hibiscus presence (which is well balanced without being distracting like some other unnamed beers), with lemon, peach, sweet yeast, mild acidity, grassy hops and deliciousness. Effervescent carbonation, full bodied, soft and crisp with a dry refreshing finish. Boom, great saison. Don't sleep on this under the Grassroots label.
