L: Pale orange, maybe a hint of pink. Fairly dense, finely bubbled head. Active carbonation.

S: A little bit of Belgian yeastyness with saison-like aromas, but very clean and bright.

T: Bright, juicy, crisp, fruity. A bit of yeast, and a surprisingly mildly sour rhubarb bite. I wouldn't mind a more intense rhubarb flavour, but I'm partial to sour drinks. Very clean. Sweet and fruity in the front, tart middle, and a mild yeasty aftertaste that doesn't linger long.

F: Overly fizzy mouthfeel on this one, not a fan.

O: Solid, average saison. The rhubarb saves it from mediocrity.

Light yellow, foamy/ fizzy.
Nice malt aroma, not much hop aroma.
Weird sour flavor-- that's the rhubarb. Nice yeast and a sort of citrus-y vibe otherwise.
Not my favorite, but drinkable.

I am a big fan of rhubarb so definitely felt this one had to be sampled

Pours a pale pink with lot's of frothy head. Smells slightly like sweet dough with a hint of floral and fruit. Really liked the taste. The slightly sweet, not over-the-top tartness adds nicely to the sweetness of this style.
A definite summertime patio refresher if one could actually get a fresh pint on a sunny patio in good old Victoria

look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Appearance - Pours a light straw with a finger width of bubbly white head.

Smell - Rhubarb tartness aromas, Belgian yeast, clove, hint of lemon, biscuity malts.

Taste - Predominantly rhubarb and biscuity malts. A little bit of the Belgian yeast, clove, and lemon are present, but they are all so light that they are easy to miss.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with tartness from rhubarb.

Overall - A lacklustre brew whose saving grace is the rhubarb. I wish there was more variation and intensity from the ingredients, rather than the one note of rhubarb and malts.

355ml bottle, part of the current Lighthouse mixed-pack. Grisette, as a style, appears to be pretty much the same thing as a Saison, but aimed at workers other than those on a farm. At any rate, all this can be avoided here, simply due to the brewer's use of rhubarb in the recipe.

This beer pours a clear, very pale pink-tinged golden straw colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, loosely foamy, and quite fizzy off-white head, which leaves some layered soapscum lace around the glass as it gently subsides.

It smells of grainy pale malt, earthy, yet zesty yeast, a semi-sour, indistinct red fruitiness, faint banana chips, and plain leafy, floral hops. The taste is more bready, grainy pale malt, a pithy, underwhelming green rhubarb tartness, softly acerbic yeast, banana skins, and earthy, leafy, and somewhat weedy hops.

The carbonation is rather involving with its multifaceted effervescence, the body just on the south side of medium weight, and mostly smooth, that yeast tripping about at times. It finishes on a drying trend, the malt fizzling out, while the lingering ethereal rhubarb and stolid yeast keep 'er straight and true.

Kind of a simple-seeming Saison, is what I get from this, with an extra 'baiser' of garden patch tartness. Not all that interesting, save the historical brewing context, but I suppose I'm glad I got to try it.
