BRACE YOURSELF...you are in for some ferocious refreshment. Grapefruit, strawberries, raspberries and malt in the taste, but subtle. This is the good stuff: suggestive, complex, deep. Tackle a frothy pint of Vicious Hibiscus now while you have the chance. Only the adventurous taste the glory.

Bottled. Poured pinkish orange with lots of rising carbonation and a sticky head. The aroma picked up sweet floral notes and citrus zest. The flavor found tart hibiscus and lesser citrus zest throughout.. prickly carbonation too.. wheaty backing. Lighter-bodied with big carbonation.. I enjoyed the tart component.. refreshing.

flatmatt (1487) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUN 8, 2012
22 oz bottle; picked it up since it was cheap and from a Michigan brewery I’d never heard of (Butternut Brewing). Pours a clear copper with a white head. Slightly yeasty, slightly red fruit, biscuity aroma. Flavor has light to medium honey, wheat biscuit, vague impressions of yeasty cloves, citrus, red fruit. Overall, nothing interesting, but nothing negative, either. It’s just... there.

Sammy (11219) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
One of the very best of the style I had, a cross-style to a lambic! Like wild yeast, I got the strawberry, fruitiness, active carbonation, and it was a great drinker. Above average mouthfeel. Fruity aroma. Pink bodied with a small white topping. Refreshing and tasty. Thanks FlandersNed for pushing this on me.

22oz bottle...a fruity pink Wit that had some nice character, but seemed a bit on the thin side. Reminded me of a sort of ’light’ version of Short’s Soft Parade. Definitely a beer for the heat of summer. BTW, I really like the label.

22oz bottle. Clear pinkish color with a small sized head. All around lighter in both aromas and tastes. Thinner. Fruits, spices, and herbal.

egajdzis (6130) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Reddish golden color with small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of light fruits, toffee, some toasted malts, and spices. Taste of lighter fruits, toast, and a wheaty finish.
