750ml into a tulip. This one's a gusher.

A: Pours a rustic dark copper with a large off-white head.

S: The rose hips are pretty apparent in the nose, giving the beer a pleasant floral aroma that also is a little herbal. Some mild pineapple brett notes and caramel sweetness as well.

T: Taste brings more floral rose notes, mild berry-like tartness, a bit of clove and white cake, a little leafy.

M: Light-bodied and very frothy.

O: This might be one of the best incorporations of rose ingredients I've had. Often-times rose beers are too subtle or hit you in the face with perfumy notes; this beer is quite even-handed, though. If the carbonation wasn't overly frothy this would be a fantastic beer.

Unfortunately very over-carbonated. Opened bottle and lost much of it to foam. Poured 3 glasses of foam and bottle continued to foam. Taste was good, as was smell. Don't have much else to say, but need to have 250 characters. Guess I should add that I purchased this beer along with a dozen other expensive beers for a taste testing with friends and family.

From 750 ml bottle to Mikasa tulip glass

A: The beer appears a light mahogany in color, effervescent and obviously bottle fermented. A gentle pour yields a fluffy, 2-inch head that thickly laces the glass where it touches

S: Dry, grassy notes play against citrus and berry sweetness. A subtle note of farmhouse funk surrounds the bouquet, suggesting notes of tobacco, wood and pepper.

T: Slightly more malt-forward than the nose suggested, the balancing sweet notes are a mix of apple and citrus and berry. Plenty of drying, grassy and herbal tones keep the sweet aspects at bay, adding layers and complexity. Hints of tobacco and oak round the flavors toward the finish, which is short and dry.

M: Medium-bodied, the grassy, funky notes seem to cut down on the brews viscosity and oily aspect.

Another reason why I love this brewery so much. There's so many interesting and experimental things you can do with a Saison, but this puts drinkability front-and-center.
