4.05/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a hazy amber with a small, white head that leaves a good amount of lacing.

Smells of flowers, I assume Hibiscus if you want to know the specific flower.

Tastes of mild tart notes with a floral and fruity underpinning. Everything starts with the very mild sour notes much like hard cider. This in turn leads to fruity notes that I would say are cherry-like perhaps with some apple or pear. The floral notes are present again, but are quite subtle. Wild yeast funk is also quite small. Overall, this beer reminds me of hard cider with some flowers thrown.

Mouthfeel is medium-light with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Alright, let's see what two years did here...

Pours a bubbly clear copper with a vigorous initial tow fingers of thick, meringue style foam that falls to a solid quilt of the same. Smells pretty simple: some peppercorn, light malts, some hints of brett (sweet, milky and funky) with just a slight floral note. Nice fruity flavor up front lends some lemon and pineapple juice with woody malt and a hint of tartness in the finish. Medium on light syrup with liberal, but quick dissipating carb and an off dry finish. Tasty beer, but nothing special.
