4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ha ha ha! I am one of the luckiest beer drinkers around! Why? Because I know Mike. Thanks Mike!!!! Wow these Leopold whiskey barrels are the bomb. I had the peach before and this Hibiscus version is even better. First the color is a crazy blood and water mix. Striking bight red hues. Slight drying cinnamon palate and aroma but barely noticeable in flavor. Huge sour cranberry/raspberry with a muted cheesy funk. Dirty socks. Earthy berry roots and vines. Clean crisp oak barrel notes. Superfunky!!!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted on 12/29/14 from a waxed and capped 375mL bottle, big thanks to Drews for sharing. Pours hazy pink-tinted orange with a thin white head that leaves a thin collar. The nose is quite sour with really nice floral, spicy hibiscus, and some dry cinnamon showing very lightly with some funk, and overripe, almost candied, pitted fruit aroma. The flavor is super tart and sour with the hibiscus and cinnamon spice playing a much lighter part, with some caramel barrel, and the same very ripe peach from the nose lightly lingering. The body is medium with light tannin, light carbonation, and a long sour and funky, spicy finish. This is really excellent.
