Just tried this on tap the other night. I was not quite sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. The darker color is definitely a plus in my book, and the spices in here - while my palate was not identifying them - made for a rather nice flavor. Definitely something I'll consider looking for at my local shop.

Poured 12oz can into snifter. It is dark cloudy pink with a 1 finger dirty white head. Aroma is very flora with some hibiscus and orange flower notes. Flavor is both sweet and slightly tart, almost like a pale ale with citrus juice. Lighter feel and easy to drink. I definitely enjoyed the uniqueness of this beer.

Had on-tap at Melt in Ohio a few weeks back.

It's alright. There's a corn-like flavor that pretty much dominates. A little more Hibiscus and orange peel with a different malt base or something would do wonders. Not terrible at all, just not memorable.

On-tap 6/21/2016 at Natty Greene’s Tavern in North Attleboro, MA, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a bright pinkish amber color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains berries, flowers, light caramelized malts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of berries and caramel. Then a floral spiciness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and there’s a mild but complementary hops presence creating a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, this is a decent beer to drink for a while.
