750mL into a tulip. Pours a deep translucent mahogany brown w/ a nice fluffy head, patchy lace, lively carbonation.

Aroma is fruity, sweet, floral. Lots of perfumy/herbal notes, lavender the most pronounced. Extra points for being unique.

Taste is likewise sweet and flowery, you can almost taste the dusty pollen. Ripe berries, sweet candied fruit, herbal tea. I'm not a huge fan of putting lots of exotic ingredients in beer, and I can't say this one works tremendously well. Still, I like the beer well enough and I can't judge it too harshly for being what it is.

Body is light and crisp, with a lingering floral aftertaste. Semi-dry finish.

Overall an interesting beer that I wouldn't have pegged for a saison/farmhouse ale if it didn't say it right on the label. I wouldn't pick this one up again but I'm glad I had a chance to try it.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a small khaki head. I turn back to the beer and it's magically gone. I swirl it back and it disappears just as quickly. Dark brown. A little transparent at the edges.

Smell - Very floral. Lots of lavender. Herbal notes. A little fruity. Dark roasted malts.

Taste - The chamomile is much more distinct. Lavender behind it. Creamy nutty malts. A little tinge of acidity in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation. Medium body and a little creamy.

Overall - Very floral and spicy. Dominates the flavor in a good way. A little rough and occasionally has an odd combination of flavors.

A: Poured with a giant 4 fingers or more of head tan head over a nearly jet black brew, held up to the light you can see a ruby red shine.

S: Smell is unique and unlike anything else. Up front with medicinal notes, wet wood, and maltiness with a base note of flowers and dark bread yeasts.

T: The flavour is distinctly medicinal, suggestive of a drink made from roots & dark malts and herbs. It's not distastefully medicinal, but reminds me of a an old fashioned remedy elixir.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate pin pricks of carbonation.

O: A unique flavoured brew that offers an old fashioned style medicinal elixir feel, but is pleasant. It might be a challenge for someone not used to these flavours - but try this with dried date and figs with blue cheese, matched with this brew the flavours shine.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

A: 1/2" tan head over black liquid.

S: Extremely powerful smell of flowers (according to the label its hibiscus, chamomile and lavender), honey, dill and maple syrup.

T: Lavender, a maple syrup taste, chamomile, grass, honey, roasted barley malt, chocolate and I guess hibiscus because it says that on the label as well. If I drink this quickly, it tastes like a cola. If I take it apart during a slower sip the flowers taste almost like plastic. Guess I'll be drinking this Siason as quickly as a Coors Light.

M: Thin viscosity and a medium level of fine carbonation.

O: Back to the drawing board with the herbal and floral element. I personally think that the herbal/floral element was too strong. Additionally, I don't think these herbs/flowers work all that well together in a beer. However, the hibiscus seemed to be the least abrasive, so that might be worth teasing out in a future, more subtle, beer.

750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. Thanks bstyle!

A - Pours a dark and murky brown color. Three fingers of mocha foam forms and fizzles away like any soured/infected stout I have encountered. I hate to draw this comparison since I'll be using it in the aroma and taste category....but cola. This look like a god damn glass of Coke.

S - This has that distinct cola like aroma to it, which is followed by herbs, flowers, and some peppercorn. Not bad, in fact its almost nice. Just not what I was expecting at all.

T - Coke with Flowers. What is going on!? It even has some cola-like twang to it. Finishes again with peppers, lavender, and hibiscus. It was a bit much at first but letting it sit for a while really smooths it out. Good, but very different.

M - Oddly enough, NOT cola like. Light carbonation and a thin to medium body.

O - This was a very unusual concept. I'm sure its just my taste buds here, but this was like a Coke variety featuring flowers and herbs. I'm struggling to finish the bottle but it is certainly worth the try considering how unique it us.

Bottle pour at the bottle share held at Chloe's inside Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear dark crimson-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and lots of herbal, spice, and floral aromas. Taste is much the same with herbal and floral flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some interesting aromas and flavors.

Bottle at Beer Revolution. Pours black with a decent beige head that fades quickly. In strong light, I can see some brown, but it's a surprisingly dark beer and the color doesn't really show up in the flavor. Very floral aroma. The lavender is nice. Some unfortunate cola. No roast. Taste is oddly sweet and just doesn't work well. Lots more cola. Less flowers. Just a muddle of odd notes that don't play nicely. Carbonation is normal, perhaps a little low for a saison. I'm not a fan of this beer. The flower and sweet cola flavors don't work together. It's kind of a mess.
