First had: on tap at TH

While Lizard Queen was the highlight of the day, this one was calling me too, so I had to give it a try. Poured a hazy amber color with slight pinkish-red hues, undoubtedly from the hibiscus addition. There was a small white head that receded to a ringlet, and dotted the glass with lacing. Aroma was earthy, funky, peppery, hints of toasted bread and wildflowers. More dry earthiness in the taste, vegetal notes, peppery spice, toasted cereal grains, with a slight twinge of tartness in the background. Light-medium body, soft mouthfeel, but just prickly enough to engage your salival glands. Nice representation of the style.

THanks to tenderbranson69 for sharing this enjoyed chilled in a teku.

The color is deep amber/bronze with moderate haze and thin white head with fine bead. the smell is yeasty and spiced with a subtle alcohol aroma with a light hint of malt. The feel is tangy, yeasty and spiced with moderate carbonation with a mild herbal tinge and mildy astringent finish.

the taste is slightly tangy from the hibiscus with a noticeable peppery taste with a light yeast tropical aspect and a gentle tinge of malt as it finishes. The overall impression is good but lacks some drinkability since it has the hibiscus and pepper, not off putting, just not something I would want multiple servings of.
