thanks to my brother for sharing this with me on Memorial day poured from the bottle into a Hill Farmstead Goblet.

The color is a slightly magenta hued red color with slight haze and thin pink head with fine bead. The smell is both tropical with floral element and slightly citrus in scent with a mild yeast adding to the aroma. The feel is very good with a tart, tangy quality yet highly carbonated almost like a spritzer with a light dry finish.

The taste is excellent - mild yeast flavor leads to hibiscus which has a tangy fruity floral quality and lemony zest in the middle with a subtle malt which seems crisp with a dry finish. This is perfect for enjoying on a very warm day as it has a slight level of sourness and the high carbonation adds some refreshment -does not taste like a 6% ale at all

Pours a lovely rosy amber color with a modest, frothy cap that sticks to the surface, Earthy, spicy, rustic aroma - dried flowers, hay, wheat, and strawberries. Very flavorful, tart, and fruity...definitely pushing the boundaries of Saison. Lemon, berries, mineral dryness, airy florals, peaches, light wheathy grain, and wood finishing with a delicate acidity. Light and crisp, fairly gentle carbonation. Thanks Patrick!

* Not consumed on this date just finally posting my review

A-A nice Rose Hue with a frothy white head.
S-Floral, lactic,lemon, slight earthiness
T- Floral, citrus like tartness, earthy/mushroom flavor
M-Light, medium carbination, slightly creamy
O- Wanted to like this more than I did. Was fairly dull and wasn't expressive at all. Maybe I'm not a big Hibiscus fan or maybe this bottle develops better with time(I'm assuming this) Would probably be a lot better with some brett development/age on it.
