Poured from the 1 Pint 9oz 'Big Bottle Series' into a pint glass.
A: Pours a pale pinkish tinted color. Fair amount of head, lacing sticks around for a long time.
S: Smells of floral notes, i.e. Hibiscus and citrus notes.
T: Tastes like a unique witbier. Very light tasting, get a good taste of the Hibiscus.
M: Very light in the mouth. Easy to drink down.
O: Probably one of the more unique beers I've drank. Great balance of flavors. A good summer beer.

- On tap at The Stable after killing a keg of 2nd Shift Unicorn Killer (amazing Saison!)
A- Pours cloudy and pink, must be from hibiscus flower
S- Smells funky, not very aromatic for a floral wit
T- Not sweet at all, more grapefruit and floral bitterness
M- Smooth and light floral finish. A lot of particles in this beer, the head appeared like curdled milk. Bartender was curios if it was a bad keg.
O- This was a bit of a stretch for me. Never had a hibiscus beer, but it was very refreshing nonetheless. I appreciated the experiment of the beer but felt it could lean towards more of a sour if they tried.

Poured from the tap a hazy orange-tea color with a thin bright white cap.
Aroma was earthy with floral and wheat notes.
The taste was tart and citrusy with lemon and tangerine along with wheat, floral notes and earthy yeast. Finishes clean.
Thinner bodied with a sharp carbonation.
A decent and interesting Witbier from 2nd Shift.

Pours a cloudy, salmon color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of wheat, floral, spice, sweet malt, and slight pale malt. Fits the style of a Witbier. Mouth feel was sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, slight sweet malt, floral, slight wheat, and hint of yeast. Overall, the floral and spice where nice additions, but the strong pale malt flavors and aroma were not desireable.

Tap at The Bridge in St. Louis.
A - Poured a cloudy, straw yellow color with a small, fizzy, white head. It receded quickly and left little to no lacing.
S - It smelled of wheat, lemon and floral notes.
T - I got a lot of lemon flavor with some mild wheat and clove taste. There was a floral taste from the hibiscus.
M - It was crisp, sharp and had a fizzy bite. A light bodied ale that had a dry finish.
D - This is a nice wit. The hibiscus makes it interesting.
