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.

Poured a red amber color. The aromas were slightly floral and had subtle cherry notes. Flavors had notes mild cherries and a light hop profile midway through. Slightly floral at the finish. The malt interplayed throughout with a sweet biscuity taste. Hard to note any hibiscus - but then I don't know what characteristics they have. Mouthfeel was light. Very good beer, I like this.

Look: A beautiful clear pinkish amber. Visible bubbles racing to the top to form a slightly off-white foamy head that dissipates pretty quickly after the beer sits.

Smell: A very present floral and herbal aroma. A little bit of citrus in the background as well.

Taste: The initial taste is a great balance of berries, especially grape, and floral hops. This brew is not bitter at all. In fact, I would say it's almost too sweet for my tastes. It starts off like a sweet wine, and it finishes with a slightly bready malt flavor with remnants of the berry and floral taste. I was impressed with this beer's taste. It was certainly unique.

Feel: Light to medium bodied with the right amount of gentle carbonation.

Overall: I was surprised that I enjoyed this beer as much as I did. I think it's a little too sweet for me to sit and drink multiple cans, but it is a tasty beer to have every once in a while.
