Poured this beer and it has a pale orange color body with a very small head. The smell is kinda fruity like banana. The taste has a banana flavor to it, no hops and some malt but not much, also is kinda sour. I was hoping for more floral notes. The mouthfeel is kinda watery and overall ok.

The nose is perfect, but dissapates somewhat as you get near the bottom of the glass.
The mouthfeel is velvety and almost thin.
The bittering is not overdone and does not linger.
Great for spring, summer, fall, and Christmas!

I really wish I could have purchased this in a 6pack, because this brew is worth sampling at different temperatures... It is highly drinkable... far more very refreshing than even lemonade on a hot day.
It is the only "longshot" I would purchase over and over.

Poured into sam adams custom glass, color is gold to light copper, head is off white, 1/2 inch thick at first, then dissipates to a thin ring, no lacing.

Smell is light malt sweetness, some hints of bread, and maybe sour or fruity note. Hard to pinpoint the hibiscus.

Taste is pretty neutral, some very light malt flavors, not off or adjunct noted, wheat is thin, shows up more in the form of bread, hops are not strong in taste but noted in the bitterness; hibiscus may be showing as some lighter sour or fruitiness.

Mouthfeel is biting on the tongue, either overcarbonated or stronger but flavorless hops creating this sensation.

Overall, a neutral beer, i'd like a bit more wheat flavor. I understand hop flavors are most likely subdued or low for hibiscus flavoring to become apparent but I'm not finding it easily.

Purchased as part of the miexed 6-pack. No specs per the website or bottle other than this is a wheat ale brewed with hibiscus flowers and is 5.8% ABV.

Pours out to a slightly hazy pale golden forming a tall poofy off white head with very good retention and lacing in part due to it's brisk carbonation, ~3.0 carbs or so. The nose is on a very non-descript standard american wheat. No phenols, no DMS, no grain or hop aromas...just kinda a beer "smell" with hints of vanilla. Mouthfeel is really not that brisk, more smooth with a medium body. The taste is rather non-descript as well, one thinks "beer" and "fruit" and "grain" but that is about it. Subtle vanilla presence. Slight yeast bite. Very mild to non-existent bitterness. I've had hibiscus and this doesn't really taste like it to me. The finish is kinda blah and leaves a slick coating on the tongue...peculiar.

Rather boring and bland. I wouldn't choose to buy this again. This years longshot was a complete dud compared to prior years.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down, leaving a coating of bubbles on the surface and down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with faint hints of hibiscus.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the flavors of hibiscus are a bit stronger and there is a very slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied and slightly watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but I didn't find the smell or taste to be overly interesting, although the addition of hibiscus prevented the taste from being bland.
