phaleslu (8969) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2016
375 ml bottle from Craft Beer Cellar-Clayton (I think; it’s been a while). Pours a barely cloudy ruby color with a small pink-tinted white head that quickly settles into a ring. Aroma of hibiscus, rose petal, cranberry, apple, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, and fresh-cut wood. The spice is fairly muddled, but a big factor. Flavor of cranberry, cherry, hibiscus, lavendar, wood, grass - the spice is lighter here. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, tart, herbal mouthfeel. Really nice, refreshing stuff.

Leighton (17195) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2016
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014 - Session 4. Pours clear orange-pink with a creamy, white head. Somewhat musty and funky on the nose, with suggestions of tart berry fruits. Light sweet flavour with notes of raspberry, faint acidity. Light bodied with average carbonation. Nice and refreshing on the finish. Great balance overall.

Hanoi (751) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2016
From notes. mid 2015. The hibiscus dominates the nose, pleasing sour and funk notes - can’t get the cranberry. The taste is very strob cranberry which really brings out the sour character. It’s very refreshing, though I found the spice profile a little fussy. A very nice take on a festive beer, light and refreshing where others are heavy and sometimes cloying.
