Poured from a corked bomber into a Dogfish Head tulip. Beautiful bottle artwork.

L: Nearly clear light copper pour. Thin fizzy white head leaves a nice ring of lacing.

S: Tart and acidic... fruity with funk and a whiff of vanilla.

T.F: Tart and delicious. Funk and lemon citrus mixed with green fruit, baking cherry, spice, and tea. The vanilla and hibiscus are subtle but present. Faint cinnamon at the finish complements the tartness and acidity nicely. Light bodied and well carbonated. Crisp and refreshing.

O: Absolutely outstanding. Great mix of flavors, and I tend to strongly dislike spiced beers I really enjoyed the hint of cinnamon at the end (it was far from overpowering... more like barely there). Unique and fantastic beer.

Light color of a wheat beer, with sourness balanced with conditioning on hibiscus flowers, vanilla beans and cinnamon. Definitely felt like a farmhouse style rendition, another creative result from Tired Hands.

Draft at TH. From the tap list: “ALTAR: Oak Fermented Hibiscus Berliner Weisse 5.2% A grown-up reinterpretation of a BrewCafé favorite. Composed of raw wheat and a touch of malted rye, and given a lengthy fermentation in a large oak foudre with our Magickal microflora. Conditioned on hibiscus flowers, vanilla beans, and cinnamon. Notes of tart cherry pie, hardspice, raspberry danish, and pink lemonade.” Tart and refreshing

Raspberry red with a finger of pink head that's quick to dissipate. Slightly tart nose. Fruity flavor of some hard-to-pin pink or red berry and just slightly tart. Surprisingly creamy mouthfeel. Not as tart as I like from the style, but good.
