Bottle purchased at Hill Farmstead Brewery in Greensboro Bend, VT.

Pours a brilliant hazy rosy red, with a 2 inch head, and a good amount of lacing. One of the best looking beers I've ever seen.

Smells like tart citrus fruit, mainly lemon, funk, smarties candy, and unmistakeable- a ton of hibiscus.

The taste is similar, but the the heavy hibiscus is slightly overwhelming. This is probably better to someone who likes hibiscus, I'll be honest, but it's never been my favorite thing. There's a good amount of tartness (not sourness, though), with lemon, orange, and some quite floral flavors. It does taste good, but it gets kind of old, quickly. Much better in smaller amounts. Do note that my review concerns me drinking the entire bottle, so take it with a grain (or full shaker) of salt.

This is light bodied, with floral and herbal, but crisp mouthfeel. There is a higher amount of carbonation.

Not too bad, absolutely brilliant look and mouthfeel to this one, but my distaste for hibiscus hinders my enjoyment of this one.

* Not consumed on this date just finally posting my review

A-A nice Rose Hue with a frothy white head.
S-Floral, lactic,lemon, slight earthiness
T- Floral, citrus like tartness, earthy/mushroom flavor
M-Light, medium carbination, slightly creamy
O- Wanted to like this more than I did. Was fairly dull and wasn't expressive at all. Maybe I'm not a big Hibiscus fan or maybe this bottle develops better with time(I'm assuming this) Would probably be a lot better with some brett development/age on it.

750 mL bottle poured into a taster.

Appearance - Slight red tinge to an otherwise golden body. Decent white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Really floral. Yeasty, floral, and a little bit of grassiness. Almost a wine barrel scent to it.

Taste - Also really floral. Sweet with a touch of acidity. Yeastiness is less intense. Malt flavor comes through behind all of it. Simple but flavorful.

Mouthfeel - Heavier than I expected. Medium carbonation. A little too sweet.

Overall - Impressive floral character. Maybe too sweet. Covers up a lot of the character that might have come out
