Shared at home on Thanksgiving eve. Again just not my favorite style. Sour/winey. Reddish color. Kinda like a lambic.

Large shared bottle in Atlanta.
Beautiful, lightly hazy, reddish body with a very good white head.
Overly funky aroma is not appealing. This returns in the aftertaste but, for the most part, the flavor is modestly appealing.

Pour is hazy light ruby red with a tight white head that lingers for a bit. Nose is a bit floral, light buttery white wine notes, hints of berry sweetness, light lime. Taste is stronger berry and lime, the floral notes are more subtle, lighter carbonation, soft feel, a bit fuller body.

Pink colour. Rosehip and lemon midsip.saison yeast prominent. Unique saison, but nothing exceptional. Gene's DC tasting. Continued Grassroots series of alright beers.

A nice beer, but maybe not up my alley as much as it seems to be for others.

Not a fan of the look, it looks like a nearly still ipa, not hazy at all and the color is close to an orange gold look rather than the normal straw color.

The smell has a nice earthy and herbal tone to it, the additions make sense as it has a nice citrus rind smell as well. Some sweetness and slight funk enclosed in the additions, a nice solid good smell. Potpourri like when it warms but not bad.

The taste follows suit, but the feel is a little thin and overly bubbly for my palate. Taste doesn't really pop with what I would have guessed from the smell, just decent not overly tasty. I get the herbal notes and some lemon bitterness at the back, some lighter malts in the base.

This is only ok, overrated in my opinion.

Look: pours a rose colored light amber - looks like a glass of Rose wine.

Smell: earthy, sweet, funky, lemon, wildflower,

Taste: Tart with an unusual bitterness at first, probably from the hibiscus. Funky, sour, tangy, lemon zest, bright citrus, thick of grapefruit rind, lots going on here.

Feel: crisp and refreshing.

Overall: not my favorite offering from HF, but it is interesting.
