3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dishwater gold with a frothy/bubbly white head. I think the aroma actually is hibiscus. Weird. Med body. Flavor is belgian yeast/spice and arguably citrus, but there’s a weird herb/floral that seems hibiscus. With maybe a hint of tobacco and/or leather. This is astringent and dry. Who’d a thought a this.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Bridge Tap House in St. Louis, MO. Cloudy grapefruit juice pour. Weaker foam. Beautiful color. One of the best colors I’ve seen for hibiscus wit. Nose is boss. Taste is boss. This brewery kicks butt. Very impressive. Great hibiscus fruity flavor with mild sweet raspberry popsicle. Fresh berry smoothie aroma. Shockingly good. Huge lacing, sheets on second pour. Great for summer. Finally, someone knows how to make a hibiscus wit. Love this brewery. 4 of 4 beers sampled were the bomb.

Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick texture. Moderate sweet taste. Solid hibiscus wit. Nice unique twist on the style.
