Great pink lemonade color. Nice hazy pink grapefruit. Nice bubbly white head and thin collar. Aroma is a sweet floral hibiscus, slight tart citrus and slight dry/tart yeast funk. Taste is that floral-funk combo at the front, some Brett/lime tart in the middle, then fades back to the hibiscus. Nice light body and medium-light carbonation.

750ml corked and caged bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a 2 finger foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is spotty and sparse. Beer is a clear, pink ruby red. Decent.

Nose is spices, hibiscus, citrus, Brett and wood. Nicely aromatic, sweet and crisp. A treat

Opens citrus, Brett funk, lime and floral. Coriander and other spicy and floral notes in the middle with a decidedly Brett-y finish and just a hint of citrus fruit. Notes of oak, cobwebs and foam. Finishes clean. Really refreshing and drinkable.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and crisp and refreshing going down. Clean finish with the slightest lingering aftertaste. The perfect session beer.

Just a really solid offering though nothing stands out about this beer. I could have a ton of this before I've had my fill though.

750ml bottle, split

Sporting a similar billing as the dazzling Brother Soigne, I snagged a few of these immediately from bottleworks. This is the 2nd anchorage/hill farmstead collaboration that I'm familiar with - surprisingly pink body, light bubbly carbonation. It's still relatively mild with the brett really pretty soft - i think a few years will transform this beer pretty dramatically. The lime and hibiscus play nicely - here's hoping these two breweries keep collaborating as they're definitely two favorites on my shortlist.
