Tart summer ale infused with 12lbs of Hibiscus flowers and a touch of orange peel. Her sexy pink hue, leaves her to be desired.

A - Pours a very clear pinkish red color with a nice fluffy pink/white head and lots of carbonation.

S - Hibiscus, melon, white grapes, and light floral.

T - Berries, hibiscus, pears, honeydew, light floral presence, with some tartness.

M - Medium body, gentle carbonation, and a lingering mild berry tartness.

O - Rates up there with one of the most unique beers I've experienced and definitely the last one of these for me. Beautiful color and glad to have experienced it, but no thanks.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 4/30/2014. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of berries, pear, apple, white grape, orange peel, flowers, honey, bread, herbal, grass, and herbal/floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale/bready malt and hibiscus/orange peel spice notes; with decent strength. Taste of berries, pear, apple, white grape, orange peel, flowers, honey, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/floral earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness/tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of berries, pear, apple, white grape, orange peel, flowers, honey, bread, and herbal/floral earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of pale/bready malts and hibiscus/orange peel spice flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance and minimal cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a pretty good hibiscus spiced beer. Good balance and robustness of pale/bready malt and hibiscus/orange peel spice flavors; and very smooth and fairly crisp to drink. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.

Pour is deep orangish amber with a yellowish white head. Nose is heavily caramel malt with a faint touch of adjunct grain and a little orange citrus. Taste follows pretty close, a bit more citrus, adjunct grains, overly sweet malt. Medium body, moderate carb, clean finish.
