750ml bottle into tulip. Batch #11, bottled 10/17/13. Thanks again AutumnBeerLove!

A: Pours a lightly hazy dark iced-tea color with a couple fingers of off-white head that slowly faded into a lasting collar. Wispy of clinging lace were left down the glass.
S: Peppercorns and rosehips are strongly noticeable on the nose, but the rosemary is in there as well. I get a mild sweetness, which I assume is the honey. There’s something in there that reminds me of balsamic vinegar – probably the rosehips. However, the combined ingredients smell a bit plasticy and rough.
T: Not as rough as the nose, but the rosehips do add that strange vinegary-floral taste. The pink pepper corns and a nice peppery layer of spice, and the rosemary comes through with hints of its characteristic flavor in the finish. The aftertaste has a blast of tart vinegar and rough acetone, as well as a lingering spiciness.
M: Medium body, slick and greasy mouthfeel with a harsh acetonic finish. Carbonation is fairly smooth but kicks up in the finish and really tingles my tongue.
O: My least favorite from the five or so beers I’ve had from the brewery. Flavors are not bad, but the harsh vinegar and plasticy acetone make this hard to drink, and the carbonation doesn’t help.

Poured from the tap at the brewery on September 8th, 2012.

It had an orange/pink-ish, cloudy hue to it, with an off-white foamy head. The smell was very sweet, fruity, floral, and a slight spiciness. The taste was similar to the smell. It had a spiciness to it with floral, honey and citrus flavours meshing nicely. Very great balance with the pink peppercorns, honey, and rosehips.

Would I buy it again? Absolutely.

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Bottled on: 4/1/14. Another take away from a trip to the brewery. I don't believe it was available on tap.

A: Cloudy amber body with orange tints at the periphery. 1 finger white head. Ok retention. Minimal lacing.

S: Fruity, floral Belgian yeast. Lemon juice. Peppercorn. Herbs. Rosemary. With effort I can pick out each listed ingredient, but taken together they create a harmonious, cohesive whole.

T: Lightly spicy initially with herbal and floral notes. A mild bitterness and tartness simultaneously develop to a semi-dry finish. A pleasant herbal astringency lingers on the palate. The tartness beckons another sip. Alcohol is light for 8%.

M: Moderate carbonation and moderate body that well suits the flavors.

O: Really nice saison with a bit extra tartness than average. Very impressed with much of Night Shift's stuff. Too bad I only grabbed the one.

Prost!
