750 mL bottle poured into a taster.

Appearance - Slight red tinge to an otherwise golden body. Decent white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Really floral. Yeasty, floral, and a little bit of grassiness. Almost a wine barrel scent to it.

Taste - Also really floral. Sweet with a touch of acidity. Yeastiness is less intense. Malt flavor comes through behind all of it. Simple but flavorful.

Mouthfeel - Heavier than I expected. Medium carbonation. A little too sweet.

Overall - Impressive floral character. Maybe too sweet. Covers up a lot of the character that might have come out

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.

750ml bottle picked up at Hill Farmstead a few weeks ago, I believe this is my first beer from Grassroots. Label describes it as a saison brewed with hibiscus and lemon, bottled 8-2013.

Appearance - Poured to a tulip glass. Color surprised me, a hazy, rosy reddish pink. Off-white/slightly pink head, very foamy to start, retains as a good finger or so leaving lace behind.

Scent - Nice tart light fruits like lemon, lime, kiwi, grapefruit come to mind. Some earthy and sweaty funk there, light white wine notes. It seems to get funkier and gain some grains/bready tones over time.

Taste - Nice funk profile as well, fair amount of tartness and acidity. Not as fruit-forward as the smell, but still noticeable lemon and grapefruit specifically, even some strawberry and blood orange. Some floral from the hibiscus. Earthy, grainy, yeasty, some sweeter malts hiding in there too.

Mouthfeel - Feels a bit watery, good amount of foaminess but carbonation was a bit lacking. But it's nice and light, no alcohol noticeable, quite drinkable despite tartness/funk.

Overall - Nice funky saison, was hoping for something a bit more unique with the hibiscus but a minor complaint. Good flavors, light and drinkable.

It's no Brother Soigne but it's quite delightful. Light, effervescent and slightly sour. Pretty delicious.
