Love, love, love this beer. Poured into a wine glass. Really red but towards pink and has a decent foam that creates a little lacing. Funky bretty nose but it is also slightly flowery and peppery. There is a slight bit of jalapeno on the nose. Very well balanced flavor. There is funk, horse blanket, for sure flowery goodness from hibiscus and such. Sour it is not, tart....sure. Really loving what the hibiscus, elder and rose hip additions are doing to this beer. Nice tart dry finish. Thin. While this is certainly not CL's best sour ale it is one of my favorites to date because of it's originality. Some times a beer just jives with you even though you know it is not technically good to style.
