Thanks to willseph for this one!

can poured into a snifter.

A: reddish-pink color with one and half fingers of head.

S: Strong floral notes but couldn't pick up any hibiscus?

T: Refreshing and somewhat tarty taste.

M: Nice carbonation and fun to drink.

O: This will be a perfect beer for summer-time. Wouldn't mind to pick a six-pack in the future.

12oz can into a wine glass.

A: Glowing garnet with a small lightly pink head.

S: Leafy, mildly sweet hibiscus, some mild witbier esters, grain.

T: Taste brings slight fruity tartness, some floral notes, light clove, bready malt.

M: Light-bodied with fine carbonation.

O: A nice summer beer, somewhat akin to a berliner weisse. A sour mash/lactic fermentation would really push this into awesomeness.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Copper. Decent carbonation, but no lacing or foam. Flat.

Smell: Sour lemon and orange rind. Some coriander. No hibiscus...

Taste/Mouthfeel: Tangy honey and black pepper. Molasses finish. Very bitter in the finish. Metallic and skunked. Pretty good initially, but I hate the finish. Sticky mouthfeel.

Overall: Very disappointing, especially for Revolution.

Serving type: can
