Had this on tap at the Trappist in Oakland. Found very little information on it prior to posting, other than a Shelton Bros. post saying it was a one-off sour. Although, as I found from my tasting, it really wasn’t sour at all. Anyways.

This pours a hazy amber with billowy white foaming.

There’s just a hint of a light, understated tartness to the aroma, along with a more prominent, still nuanced, scent of hibiscus tea.

What was surprising is that this beer was not sour-despite being advertised as such it bears only the slightest hint of any souring. Rather it’s malty sweet, with an unmistakable hibiscus flavoring. Almost like a caramelly-hibiscus combination. Too sweet for my tastes.

Serving type: on-tap
