On tap takeover at Cole’s in Buffalo. Not pink coloured but a ruby red with slight white head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. Taste has the cherries come through strongest, couldn’t really detect the lime. Not bad.

A bit more amber than pink, but whatever. Fruity and floral nose. Very heavy on the hibiscus notes and quite a lot of lime as well. Some cherry, a hint of bubblegum, and some Kool Aid. Slight grassiness to the flavor. Big fruit character, too. Plenty of cherry Kool Aid, lime, and a lot of hibiscus. Just a hint of tartness on the finish.

Tap sample. Poured clear reddish brown color and an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate dark cherry tart and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium tart cherry sweet flavor with a medium sweet citrus finish of moderate duration. Refreshing fruit beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Home Brew Mart location. Just went on this morning. Reddish pour with pink tints. Fizzy but disappearing off white head. Nose is sweet cherries and malt. Taste is high and light fruitiness. Not getting clear lime, but getting the twang that goes along with it. Hibiscus is present in the nose and lightly on the tongue. Long lingering tartness in the afters. Very nice brew.
