look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: pours a rust copper tone body, with high carbonation, and a soda fizzy head that dissipates quickly.

S: really not much going on here. i pick up on berry-like qualities, very light citrus. light floral qualities ut thats pretty much it.

T: following the nose, berries, citrus, light grassy/floral note. decent balance for the lack of flavors that are coming through

M: very light on the palate, big carbonation. leaves a slight hint of acidity on the palate that is quite nice.

O: there really isn't much going on with brew, but it does drink exceptionally well to be honest. very refreshing for these dog days of summer.

Appearance-
Probably the best thing about this beer. It is a incredible pink amber hue, with a thick head.

Taste- Malty lager with sour bite.

Had on tap at Blue's BBQ. Served in a taster glass.

A: This hibiscus really lends its color here. Pours a rosy color with some amber highlights. A thin white head forms on the pour and recedes to a thin ring that leaves some nice webbing of lace.

S: The hibiscus is present on the nose. Light and sweet smelling. Minimal hops with a nice cracker malt backbone.

T: Nice malty sweetness with the bright hibiscus coming through. Some orange pith with a light bitterness on the finish.

M: Light bodied with a bubbly, medium high carbonation level. Nice drinkability.

O: Nice flowery flavors that's easily drinkable. Wouldn't be my go to choice on a hot summer's day, but it's a nice option if nothing else is around.
