What the brewer says

“This blend of saisons, one aged in oak, the other brewed with hibis­cus flow­ers and co-fer­mented with chardon­nay-grape juice, has aro­mas of grape­fruit and red berries that are fol­lowed by a hint of oak. Fla­vors of sweet berries and lightly tart cit­rus re­solve to sub­tle oak tan­nins and spicy Bel­gian yeast.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Grape and sub­tle hibis­cus aro­mat­ics dom­i­nate. Slight earthy hops. Per­haps a hint of bready malt. Spicy phe­nols.” Fla­vor: “Clas­sic pep­pery phe­no­lics. Tart and pleas­ant hibis­cus. Dry, yet sub­tly sweet, grape fla­vors. Ev­ery­thing is well-bal­anced and works well to­gether. Dry, but not harsh fin­ish with a low bit­ter­ness and low sour.” Over­all: “Clean, spicy, dry, yet fruity. Well-crafted blend of spicy pep­pery phe­no­lics and fruit char­ac­ter­is­tics. Very sub­tle, well-in­te­grated hibis­cus notes. Ev­ery­thing works with ev­ery­thing else.”
