On tap at Monkish Brewing Company in Torrance, CA.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruits, spices, and some really nice floral aromas. Taste is much the same and slightly tart with a floral finish that lingers after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a really nice smell and a solid set of flavors.

Served in a footed glass at Ale Arsenal. From notes. Reviewed 15 November 2013.

Pink or crimson. Clear. The nose is so faint as to be undetectable. The taste is incredibly interesting. Dryish, spicy, almost funky. Very floral Belgian yeast. Sharp-tart hibiscus is obvious, but the very apparent yeast carries it out. A noble effort. Would drink again and recommend.

On-tap at Beachwood I,

A: Pours a medium pinkish amber, nice colour, great head, some lace.

S: Flowery, hibiscus with some caramel malt.

T: Overt hibiscus, floral and herbal. Fruity with some raspberry like character. Hint of wheat at the end which makes for a nice twist.

M: Crisp and biting at times, but with a soft easy carbonation and feel overall. Elegant, the beer is great here.

O: Full-flavoured, interesting, local, what's not to love about this beer. Well worth a try.
