i think this one changes from batch to batch, im not totally sure, but the one we had was purple stained and done with beets and rosemary from what i understand. a cool sort of wild botanical mixed ferment sort of thing, this time herbaceous and earthy, i think rightly named and very garden-esque. i get that dusty rooty turmeric thing, intense in some ways, but also the rustic funky brett element to brighten it up, and some fresh herbal character too, this is a really weird but also somehow strangely approachable and wide appeal sort of brew, hard to do both at the same time and they have done it admirably here. lightly sweet from the beets, oily and piney from the rosemary, which isnt overdone at all, and with a cool earthy intensity from the turmeric, still loaded with sweet citrus and wheat malt richness. i think this is a weird mix of ingredients that somehow go together well, it almost doesnt make sense how sort of cohesive this is, complex but also simple and minimalist for a beer with so much happening in it. pink and a little sweet and with a medium body but killer carbonation. i can feel how much fun these dudes are having when i drink the beer, its a feeling as much as a flavor, and i love it! better from the bottle than from the tap in our experience.

Pours a clear straw gold, fast shrinking head of foam, lots of bubble action. Smells funky, of lemon and grapefruit, coriander. Tastes of light tart lemon, grapefruit bitterness, coriander and light cloves. A very dry Saison. Light bodied with very lively carbonation. Nice beer.

Thanks wyoming for the bottle!

Poured into a Thirsty Monk snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium golden color with a 1/4 inch white head that retains a bit before becoming a paper-thin ring around the edge of the glass and a large side patch of surface foam. Nearly no lacing.

S- Massive fresh cucumber aroma and not much else.

T- Intense cucumber flavor that's slightly sweet. Just all cucumber but so good and drinkable. I get a little of the peppercorn but all the other ingredients are very faint, including the Brett.

M- Tight and snappy with medium carbonation and a light body.

O- I wish I got more Brett but, as far as cucumber flavored beers go, this one's a winner.

Bottle:
Saison with golden beets, hibiscus, cherry, and ginseng.
Pours a nice rosé initially, but by end of pour, it has become cloudy-assuming some sediment is involved. Soda-like head builds up and fades almost as quickly. Nose is floral (thinking the hibiscus), lightly sweet with just a hint of cherry.

Taste is like the nose in some respects, but with a root-y, herbal to almost woody dry farmhouse flavors. The cherry peeks through, but subdued. Carbonation is well hidden, because even without being visible the tongue gets a little attack; there's also a bite of peppery spice helping.

This beer slowly grew on me, but not to a point of becoming beloved. I started appreciating the flavors in the beer, but together, they didn't work exceptionally well for me.
