I paired this with a downtown Portland grass-fed beef hamburger and deep fried brussels sprouts with pickled onions. Remarkably, the light raspberry-hibiscus floral notes were a good balance on a summer night with the darker flavors of grilled meat and sprouts.

Pours very red with a light head. Mouth feel is crisp and clean, which was good in this pairing, but may be lacking in a direct tasting.

Sample from Microbrew Fest. I remembered it poured a bit red. Aroma was floral and earthy and a bit fruity. Tasted the same. It was not very intense but it worked. I guess this has some hibiscus in it, which I dig. A decent sample.

More like a fruit ale than a blonde ale based on the color of this pour, pours a bright red color, very clean looking, no head or lacing.

Smell has a flowery aroma, hibiscus is very strong, raspberry present but not as aggressive on the nose.

Taste starts off almost like a tea with the flowery fruit taste, the hibiscus raspberry is a nice combination, I remember it tasting slightly sweeter at the brewery than at home from the growler, carbonation is fairly low but seemed much higher at the brewery as well, agave lends a slight sweetness that isn't cloying or artificial tasting.

Easy drinking but also very un-beer like so temper your expectations.

L:Pours a cranberry juice red with a thin head and light lacing as it goes down.
S: Slightly floral
T: Malty an sweet at the same time. Raspberry and blueberry come in at the end of the palate. There is a lingering tartness afterwards that is pleasant.
F: Very soft and enjoyable mouthfeel.
O: A very unique approach to a blonde ale that is extremely drinkable! Well done.
