I had this on tap at Parker Pie in VT, served chilled in a pint at the 4th anniversary party for Hill Farmstead.

The color is sunny amber with hazed clarity and thick white head that settles with a fine bead-no lace. The aroma is very good with juicy scent of strong citrus with lemonade and berry aroma with lactic tang in the nose and mineral note with orange rind spiciness. The feel is tangy, tart and has high carbonation with mild body and prickly carb w/ jazzy acidic feel lighter body and semi dry finish.

The flavor is strong citrus with lemony and floral flavor of hibiscus with its light sour tropical fruitiness and lemony tart acidity hits the palate with herbal and spice complimentary flavor of orange the hibiscus blends well with malt in the finish. Overall a very sour, refreshing beer with tasty citrus and excellent drinkability -very nice quaffable sour ale with moderately low abv. (909 characters)

A bright yellow murky appearance. The taste has a fantastic blend of tart, funk, lemon/lime flavor and yeast. Extremely enjoyable. (132 characters)
