This pours a purple tinged cola color with tight foaming lace
This has a wonderfully floral aroma. The notes of chamomile, hibiscus and lavender come through in a nuanced balanced way. It's pleasing and delicate with a floral flavor that comes across followed by a punch of lavender. Absolutely loved this.

Way too much lavender and chamomile for me. Nothing else really going on. Not their best offering here.

Had on tap at Alibi room in Vancouver. Despite visiting the brewery in Portland in the summer we never had a chance to try this great beer. Pours fairly dark and very fragrant. Smells exactly as described....chamomile, lavender, and hibiscus and tastes exactly like described. Almost perfume like but delicious as the taste lingers on your palate. Highly recommended.

Good beer. I, like others, wouldn't have pegged this one as a saison had I not known what it was. This beer came across more like a weakish dubbel to me. Really nice, floral aroma. Lighter than expected body, and a bit less flavorful than I hoped it would be based on the nose, but a nice, clean beer.

At first taste, my thought was this is the most revolting *not spoiled* beer I have ever had. I mean, it's make perfectly well, it's clean, but the overpowering herbal flavor is just loathsome. I'm all for interesting ingredients and flavorings, but this does not work.

Color is an inviting dark brown with a big head in the Stella Artois goblet. Intense bitter medicinal taste with an off-putting sweet undertone. Candied crab apples with tonic water. Cinnamon pickles with aspirin. Burnt butterscotch with cherry cough syrup. I hope it is the hops that add so much bitterness, but I can only think of the Chinese medicinal wine I was fool enough to try.

Interestingly, the palate seems to deaden after some sipping. I suppose you could drink this. No you, not me.
