Poured this beer, it has a reddish color body with a thin head. The aroma has a sweet and some floral hints to it. The taste has a sweet, malt flavor to it. It also has some hop on the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel is smooth and overall it is good, nothing to over the top.

Poured from bottle into Pilsner Glass.

This appeared to be a clear red ale with a light head and light carbonation.

The smell had hints of orange/citrus and a dry red ale fragrance with hints of floral.

It tastes more fruity than a tradition red ale with a citrusy lemon/orange twist. It does leave a tart wheat after taste.

The feel on the mouth was light with an even amount of carbonation.

Overall this is a good to great ale with a nice alcohol% kick that rounds the experience. I will suggest this as tasty get-together drink that works well with chicken wings.

I really, REALLY like this beer. I took a few extra sips while rating it , just so I can taste it again. The taste, mouthfeel, smell is all in perfect ranges. I strongly suggest this to anyone. Even to a not often beer drinker. Blue Moon has once again lived up to their expectations. I got this in the sampler pack. I will have to find it in its own pack and purchase. The Hibiscus flavor is strong , in a good way.
