Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 1/2013.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour and tart with malt and grain aromas. Taste is much the same with mildly sour flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Thanks to Mark for sharing, and to Dan for hosting :thumbup:
Quick review from written notes.

Color has a slight reddish pink tint from the hibiscus most likely, fairly cloudy with a thin web by skim of foam across the surface, no lacing visible.

Lemon and passionfruit aroma, fruit forward.

Taste is tart and fruity, fruit forward lemon and passionfruit impressions again. Signature HF yeast. Crisp feel with a dry finish. Overall very drinkable.

Golden-yellow pour, hazy, with a big fluff of white head that settled to a thick ringlet and coated the glass with lacing. Nice floral aroma, citrus and stone fruit essence, peppery spice and a slight earthiness. Floral taste as well, peach and orange blossom, some spicy and funky elements seemingly coming from the yeast, slight tartness on the tongue. Crisp and clean, light-medium body, and very enjoyable overall.

From 05/19/14 notes. Had this during the mega-BCS tasting as a break from all the stout. 750ml bottle poured into my Lost Abby stemware.

a - Pours a hazy pinkish-orange color with two fingers of fluffy bright white head and high carbonation evident. Looks cool, a nice color.

s - Smells of sour dark fruits, brett, hibiscus, earthy notes, floral hops, citrus, lemon zest, berries, sour wine, and jam. Very nice nose, sour and fruity, like it a lot.

t - Tastes of sour berries and dark fruits, jam, brett, citrus hops, oranges, fruity malts, spice, floral hops, earthy malts, oak, lemon, and wine. More dark fruits than the nose.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Acedic and easy to drink.

o - Overall a very nice wild ale; lots of brett, sour dark fruits, and citrus mixing together. Easy to drink, would love to have it again.
