12 oz can in Ohio.
Hazy reddish copper body with a good head.
A nice toasted grain base with a clear hibiscus note. Misleading tart aroma.
Medium+ body with soft, medium carbonation.

Look is transparent watered down cranberry red. Served with 1 finger of light pink head.

Aroma is floral and maybe cherry.

Taste follows nose with a little bit of tartness and an odd aftertaste. Kind of off putting to be honest.

Feel is light and crisp i just can't get past this aftertaste. It's reminiscent of when someone puts on too much perfume and you can almost taste it.

Overall not a bad beer I'm just wondering if the hibiscus isn't too much here....

A rose colored beer with small head and a citrisy taste to it. Not bad the orange peel gives it the zing that it need to be a decent summer beer to drink

Aroma is a little funky but the flavor has nothing funky about it....just a lot of cherry, berries, and breadiness....

I honestly have no idea what hibiscus adds flavor wise but this drinks nice. A good summer beer for sure.
