look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Had at the brewery & in a growler at home

A: Nice clear pink/red color with a white head that has decent head retention

S: Clean, but with a slight tart smell that is not over powering.

T: Very clean taste upfront with not a lot of grain character. Finishes with a slight amount of orange tartness towards the end, but definitely won't blow you palette

M: Very light and refreshing. A wonderful summer beer that is well balanced.

O: Good all around beer and perfect for summer days/nights

Serving type: growler

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A-clear pinkish orange, not much carbonation and a one finger head.

S-Nice tart notes, the flowers come through has a slight bit of citrus to it as well. Very sweet smelling though.

T-Starts with a malty flowery taste. The finish is a mixture of grass and tart. The citrus is there. But the beer seems to be too sweet.

M-Lighter, not much carbonation, maybe slightly watery.

O-A solid summer beer, the flowers add a pleasant taste,.

One of the first beers brewed outside of Belgium that pour a magenta hue with a pink tinged head, these Rosa Hibiscus beers don't pull any punches. Fine speckled lacing left intricately adds to the beauty of the beer. Aroma has notes of a citrus based wheat with floral notes galore, so flowery in the aromatics that it really rises up to the Rosa namesake. A nice base beer maybe some wheat in the malt bill, slightly citric tartness, bitterness derived from the hibiscus hops added color seems natural not dyed like most unique colored beers out there. This proves that Revolution doesn't really make any bad beer, it's that good. Other than the hibiscus I'm guessing there's some citrus peel and dried spices added to the mix but I can't really pick them out amongst the heavier floral forward notes. Mouthfeel has a nice dryness not overtly sweet, earthy, floral notes galore with even carbonation for the style a bit dead on and not aggressive in anyway...I'd call it lighter bodied. Overall impressive canned offering from an innovative brewer, I bet they sell a ton of this...even if it's not the most unique beer I've ever tasted out of these floral aka rose hips infused beer this is a solid drinkable version of a difficult style to make balanced.
