A - pours a slightly hazy light orange with a standard head. Good lace. Minimal bubbles.

S - tart, floral, oak, sweet biscuit, orange, light leather, mild mango and mild dank from Citra.

T - follows the aroma and adds a touch of wine and black pepper. The rose hips taste similar to hibiscus. Very tasty!

M - light-medium body. Dry. Nice tartness. Fine and crisp carbonation.

O - a very enjoyable Saison. Complex flavor and aroma. Smooth 8%. Subtle, but enticing and far from bland.

Poured from a 750 bottle into a footed tulip.

A: Golden orange-ish hue. Pours a finger and a half, bubbly, white head. Settles fairly quickly. Rising effervescence throughout. Slight lacing mostly retreats back into the body.

S: Wheat and prominent amounts of raspberry.

T: Tastes like is smells... light wheaty grains and bitter fermented raspberry.

M: Light body, biting bitterness. Very acidic. Something of a carbonated feel to it. Kind of stale carboardy finish that hangs on the palate.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Nice hue, decent head, but no real lacing. Nose is wheaty, and grainy, and fruity. Light and wheaty with lots of fermented raspberry. Bitter and acidic with something of an off-putting final step. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
