I tried this at the brewpub more out of curiosity than anything else. Served in what they told me was a tall, thin bell glass.

The beer had a pinkish/red color to it, pretty clear, and with a ½-finger of white head on top. Head retention lasted about a minute and there was only a smattering of spotty lacing.

Flowery and fruity smell with lots of hibiscus in the aroma.

A little sweet, a little tart, with a cherry-like fruity taste. Also lots of hibiscus flavor which I don't particularly like, but wanted to try anyway.

Light with medium carbonation.

Definitely nothing I would order again, but glad I tried it for its uniqueness.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a reddish-pink color with two fingers of white head. Walls of lace.

The nose has notes of sweet and slightly tart hibiscus flowers with a malty backbone. Interesting.

The flavors are sweet and tart as the nose suggested. The floral and fruity presence of hibiscus is quite prominant here. Orange flavors are mingling with the tart flower. The finish holds some tastey nutty malt flavors. Again, interesting.

The mouthfeel is light and crisp with ample carbonation. Enjoyable and drinkable.

Overall, this is an interesting beer with a nice flavor profile. Unusual and yummy.

Serving type: on-tap
