750ml bottle into tulip.

A: Pours an interesting shade of pinkish-orange with a surprisingly unexciting head that quickly fizzed away into nothing.
S: Lime juice hits first followed by a rather cheesey and sweaty variety of funk. I get a few earthy barnyard notes as well. The hibiscus is noticeable as well, and gives off that characteristic dry floral scent.
T: The funky oak/brett and lime juice come through up front followed by floral hibiscus and bitter lime/yeast in the finish. The oak, hibiscus and Brett make for a dryish finish, but it's not as crisp and dry as I'd hoped. The aftertaste is mildly bretty but this beer really falls off in the end. I get a touch bitter lime in there as well.
M: Medium-light body, slicker and wetter than I would have liked, with soft and splashy carbonation.
O: Decent flavor, interesting ingredients, but I was disappointed by this one. Definitely not as good as it should have been on paper. Very underwhelming.

750ml corked and caged offering poured into a wine glass. The brew appears strikingly pink with a white head that is quick to fade. Some spots of lace hang on the glass.

The aroma includes notes of rinds and tart lemon juice. This is a pretty awesone nose, albeit simple and to the point. Faint wild yeastiness blends with lemon and faint herbal/floral appeal.

The taste is dry and grainy with floral herbal impact in the finish. Whereas the aroma makes it seem like this might he sour, the taste is dry and not even tart. It is simple and easy drinking, perhaps a bit of a letdown with being so mild flavored compared to the wonderful aroma.

This is a light bodied brew with ample carbonation. It is easy drinking with a very delicate flavoring across the board. Unfortunately the look and the nose were the best parts of this. Id take it again if offered but I would not pay the asking price again.
