boxofrane (2113) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2012 Bottle. Pours hazy orange with minimal. Aroma is funk beyond belief. Taste is ultra sour.. mouth puckering tart in my opinion.. I’m chewing my own tongue right now. Great sour where the hibiscus really comes through in the finish.

OldGrowth (2670) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2012
bottle from Van Loans, real good aroma, sour, sweet. little yeasty funk, little oak, herbs give it nice red berry type scent. tad cloudy reddish orange color, good initial head that quickly faded to a ring, no lace. Sour flavor. light body, thin feel, average carbonation, bitter finish. pretty good, though the aroma got my hopes up, but flavor doesn’t match aroma, bit weaker, not as interesting. still solid offering, well worth having.

madvike (2733) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle from hbmason...thanks Tim! - Pours hazy pink with a thin, filmy off-white head. Nose is sweet florals, honeydew melon, herbal hops, sweet white grape, Lightly tart, with actually is a bit odd with the floral/fruit mix. Taste has many of the same qualities. Sweet, gentle florals, light tropical fruitiness, a bit of citrus rind, and a creamy, yogurty finish. Subtle citrus rind on the long finish. Tons of carbonation, fills the mouth and bites the tongue a bit. I really don’t find many beers with flowers that I like, but this one is an exception. Pretty good stuff.

joebudzjoe (667) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Draft @ birdsall house in Peekskill, NY. Pours pinkish red with minimal head. This is a smooth, silky and slightly acidic sour ale. No carbonation at all. Notes of tomato juice, herb tea, flowers, honey and oranges. A real tasty and delicious experiment.

jackl (4608) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Pours deep rusted cranberry red with a small white head. The nose is bright and floral. Aromas of flower petals, herbs, and light cranberry abound. Nice. The taste is soft vinous red fruits and summery herbs. Floral and soft, sweet. The finish has hints of tart fruits, slightly buggy. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, very nice, tasty. This beer’s worth the price.

AdamJackson (2625) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Looks like grapefruit juice. Minor head. Smells like oranges, flowers and juniper berries. Sort of a champagne mouthfeel, tastes like candi sugar and lots of floral notes, some honey and orange juice.
