From notes on July 16, 2014 at Hopleaf, Chicago, IL. Draft poured into snifter.

A: moderately hazy amber with a pinkish hue. Bone white head that settles down. No visible carbonation.

S: Wheat. Grainy. Sour citrus. Tea.

T: the taste follows exactly from the nose.

M: thin and carbonated.

D : definitely not true to style, but delicious with the addition of tea, which adds just a mild amount of sweeter floral notes to the nose and palate. Extremely drikable and refreshing.

Serving type: on-tap

3.65/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a pleasant pinkish orange, frothy pastel foam, spotty lace and ever present surface skim.

Aromas is mostly hibiscus, some wheat and minerally yeast, lacto tartness.

Flavor is much he same despite the papaya front and center on the label it just doesn't come across. Still, as a hibiscus Berliner, it's pretty enjoyable for what it is. Light bodied, crisp and tart. Finishes dry with a slight pucker. It's not bad, just was hoping for more tropical fruit and complexity.
