Herbs, peppercorns, mouth-drying cinnamon and spice. Looks great, tastes bad.

Big thanks to my trading partner Jerriko for giving me the chance to try this. It is a surprising color, bright pink with almost zero head, just a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. I still think it looks good though. The aroma is a little bit of bile and vomit, sort of reminiscent of the first petite sour guava. As it warms I get a mild hint if cinnamon. It's not offensive but the smell isn't a high point. Fortunately the flavor is a little better. Only mildly tart, slight but of whiskey on the finish, a touch floral and a little bit of fruit juice in there. Overall it's an extremely easy beer to drink on a hot day but I wouldn't purchase this, certainly not at the price point crooked stave sets their beers at.

the hibiscus give the beer a great color. I barely taste the cinnamon and spices, and in general I notice a complete lack in flavor. I have had better from crooked stave

A clear reddish/ruby pour. White head that vanished somewhat quickly.

Aroma was tart and fruity. Roses and florals. Some spice, but no cinnamon

Flavor had a nice bouquet of florals and raspberry. Alas not any cinnamon. Not a big thing, but was expected more spice.

Sharp tartness, sour on the end. Dry finish.
This bottle was a year old, stored in cellar conditioned. While a nice beer, nothing special. It was part of the cellar reserve membership. I would not have minded a substitution

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Bright red. Mostly clear. Small white head and some wisps.

Smell - Minimal acidity. Oak. Vanilla and whiskey.

Taste - More berry like. A bit of tang. The cinnamon makes it tastes a bit medicinal. Some oak and whiskey in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Low sourness. Medium body.

Overall - Tasty. The cinnamon is a bit odd.

Cheers Miles!

Apple and cinnamon along with some spicing..the cinnamon?..on the nose

More of an oaked cranberry vibe with some barrel related tannins on the finish.

Interesting beer...a fun try
