Cherry hued amber body with a dense white head and fine lacing.
Rose petals and hibiscus dominate the aroma with some light brett notes sneaking in there.
Tastes like a wild garden. My first impression was that the rose and hibiscus had taken this beer over, totally overboard. As I sat down with it and tried to dissect the glass, brett, mild acid, eucolyptus, bubblegum and other qualities began to appear. But...the rose and the hibiscus in particular still seem to strong. They seem to mask other flavors.
The mouthfeel is perhaps a bit thinner than a standard Saison, but overall not much to report here.
A unique beer that combines two very interesting Saison ingredients to form a very unique beer. I wish it had less floral character and more Brett and Saison flavor, but that's my only complaint.
