definitily a drinking experience. A saison with an aroma of a bouquet of flowers. taste is chamomille tea like with a slight spiceness. belgian yeast is overpowered by the added yarrow and calendula, but this is a very floral forward beer.

Pours with heavy carbonation, bright yellow, slightly cloudy - looks exactly how a saison should. Smell is floral and spicy- the calendula flowers give this beer a slightly soapy/perfumey note while the yeasty esters (and perhaps the yarrow?) give off an almost ginger like spiciness. The botanicals give this saison pretty big flavor, but it's a touch too floral/perfumed for my taste. The barrel aged version of this, however, is absolutely beautiful and one you should not hesitate to try.

Pour is dark hazed amber with lots of tight white head. Nose is very floral, lots of spicy flowers, a bit green, fair bit of pepper, some farmhouse notes, faint lemon. Taste is similar, tons of floral herbal notes, a fair bit of pepper, some lemon, grassy hop. Light body, softer carb, gentle feel.
