bottle (5/4/13 on 6/3/13) to night shift sniffer
A: It is bright red it could very well be mistaken for a strawberry-kwiwi mixed drink. It has little to no carbonation or head but it does leave a white lacing outside of the top of the glass. It is completely opaque which really rounds out a unique appearance.
S: Well the first smell that you get is very clearly, strawberries and they are quite pungent and distinguishable. There is some more fruitiness in there but my nose isn't good enough to define kiwi or hibiscus. There is definitely a little bit of funk in there that seems like it would come out more over time.
T: Initially it again has the distinctive taste of liquid strawberries but this is not as strong as the smell and is more subtile and very sweet. There is also come kiwi juiciness in there that clear adds to the strong sour flavor that is very vinegary and acidic but in a good way not like soy sauce though I am defiantly curious to see how this beer develops over time. The hibiscus flowers are actually present in the after taste and do seem to cut the heavy sour acidity.
M: There is a decent amount of light carbonation that helps cut into the sour. it is very light, crisp, tart and sweet all at the same time which makes it pretty drinkable even for its very strong sour taste. It goes down smooth with a very slimy vicious feel down the throat.
O: This is my first beer from Night Shift and I am really impressed I will definitely be back at this brewery as for their beer itself it does live up to my expections but it does not blow me away. The strawberry and kiwi flavors are there but I wish it was not so harsh and vinegary. With that being said I would definitely recommend this beer.

A: sort of pinkish yellow in color. Cloudy. Forms a light white fizzy head that goes as quickly as it comes. No lacing.
S: well ther is a bit of a dual nature to the aroma. When I jam my nose in the bee, it is wonderful. Berries, strawberry, lychee, wonderful fruit flavors. But when I hold my nose about an inch from the glass, there is a quite distinct plastic aroma.
T: taste is quite pleasant. There is a nice balanced between fruity berry sweetness and fruity tartness. Berries, tart fruit, strawberry, kiwi. Quite nice.
M: lighter bodied. Tart. Lower than expected carbonation.
O: I quite liked this one. A nicely down fruited BW.
