Bottle from Gianni - thanks! Murky pinkish pour with a large froth of off-white foam. Aroma is light, herbal flowers with some vinuous white wine underneath and a bit of light sour. Taste is heavy with flowers over white wine and a corse, grainy flavor. Definitely tart through the finish but itís restrained and quenching. Some lingering tartness after each sip. Well crafted beer.

Bottle... Pours a murky rosť with a small, creamy, pinkish head. Great retention. The flavor is fruity and funky while offering up a delicate note of sharp old cheese. Medium-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is tart, fruity and bready. Finishes tangy with a hint of yeasty bitterness. Bottle courtesy of growler!

Bottle with friends. Grapefruit pour with no head. Delicious aroma. Slightly stale. Taste is a punch of citrus with a fine woodiness. Slightly stale but compliments. Really unique

Pour out of 375 mL bottle, hazy orange red with thin white head, aroma has notes of nice lemon juice, flowers, slight honey, vanilla, hints of biscuit, caramel. Taste is not as nice, some slight hints of earth, biscuit, caramel, nice flowers, dry earth, finishing very dry and very floral.

Bottle @ home during my #5,000 tick fest, courtesy of arminjewell. Pours a cloudy, peachish appearance with an off white head. Somewhat floral, cherry pie, earthy, moderately vinous, light grape aroma. Somewhat spicy, moderately yeasty, sweet cherry, red grape, moderately floral/rose, fairly fruity flavor. Fairly dry finish. Pretty tasty, interesting brew.

pushkinwow (2098) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2012
On tap at 20th Vermont Brewers Festival. This was one of my favourite at the festival. A rose hued brown with a pinkish head. Tannins, cherry, malt, defnite hibiscus, acidic, fresh, sour. Full body, mild carbonation, smooth, dry, tart, bit of farmhouse, delicious.

Steve_0 (2874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle at home. Pour is hazy magenta in appearance with a big, long-lasting white head. Beautiful looking beer. Rose water, medicine, herbs, floral hops, light funk, wood, and honey in the aroma. Taste is hibiscus, medicinal, slightly funky, dusty, floral, tannin, wood, biscuit, and fruit punch with a lightly tart finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Spritzy, tangy, floral, lightly hoppy, and tart; super well-balanced. Great beer for all occasions and a big surprise. Well-done!

Bottle dated 5/12 poured into an Odonata chalice. First thing I noticed is an off-color scum around the inside of the bottleneck under the cap. Uh oh. I wiped it away and poured the beer with diminished hopes. Ruby pink color with a three finger light foam white head. The head begins to reduce to a clingy film immediately. Aroma of hibiscus, rose water, and red apple skin. Taste is tart and a tad funky. Reminds me of pink lemonade and sour strawberries. Time may have taken its toll on this bottle, but I donít get the flowery aroma and flavor I had hoped for. Either way, it is a tart and refreshing beer.
