BBD 01/16. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a ruby tint. Normal head volume, below normal lacing and retention.

World class nose of hibiscus over wheat and biscuit with powerful notes of sweet fruit and light spice.

Light medium body with a texture that is smooth with creamy aspects. World class carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and a finely bubbled prickly finish.

The flavor profile is quite outstanding. Intensity and balance deliver with complexity being the star of the show. It begins slightly sweet then the hibiscus flavor arrives. The middle remains slightly sweet coupled with a slight sour tartness that causes an almost imperceptible pucker. Tart apples and cherry come to mind. The finish brings grainy wheat and a soft spice over a lingering tartness and fading honey like sweetness.

This is probably one of the more interesting brews I've tried to date forsure.

Appearance - Poured into a tulip, this beer pours a mix between a rose pink and a deep amber the head was about 2 fingers at first and a light pink. it fades within seconds leaving no trace of a head. Carbonation than looks pretty dull.

Aroma - The smell is definitely this beers strongest attribute, it welcomes you in with sweet hibiscus, wheat zest some light floral smells like the ones you get from budding lilacs in spring.

Taste - This is a very sweet beer, the hibiscus gives a sweet beginning following into almost a strong sour taste, it reminds me of the aftertaste of sour cream. underneath that you get wheat, some floral tastes and maybe a bit of a caramel.

Feel - This beer feels medium - light bodied with stabbing carbonation on the tongue but goes down smooth. the finish is sweet with a lasting sweet and sour aftertaste.

Overall - This is a very well executed beer to me. Certain flavors are turnoffs but their blended so nicely with the good that you seem to forget about them. Its not something I think id buy again but it was definitely a pleasant experience. Cheers!

Poured from a 330ml into a tulip.

A: Pours a rich amber with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly into a ring. This maintains and laces nicely.

S: Sweet hibiscus, spices and really nice florals.

T: Spices, a little caramel, bubblegum and notes that come off like apple.

M: Medium to light body with thin carbonation.

O: A sweet wine lover's delight, this was a nice, light, sweet brew with a beautiful color and nice botanicals. I would definitely drink again if I was in the mood for something a little sweet and straightforward.

L- Hazy pink with a surprising small head for a wheat beer. Little lacing reduces to a light ring.
S-This is really a lovely aroma. Sweet red fruits and hibiscus.
T- Some diluted fruity sweetness which finishes tart almost rye-like.
F- carbonation is moderate leaving a lighter mouthfeel. Dry almost wine like.
O-Very interesting. A nice easy drinkable brew. It accomplishes what it is supposed to in showcasing the hibiscus.

Veiled ruby color with a low amount of activity. Weak half a finger head that dissipates within a minute, and some poor legs.

Aromas of strong flowers with some fruits like cherries and strawberries. Flavors of cherries and fruits, roasted malts, with a flowery feel and herbal spices. Well balanced flavors and a highly sugary taste.

Light body with some prickly carbonation. Light finish of medium length, ending with more of a bitter and sharp dry fruity tongue coat, and some roasted grains.

Overall decent quality craft having some well executed complex flavors that are not entirely pleasant, but still worth a try. Very thin body that feels like a carbonated juice. Incredible smell though, and good freshness.
