Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2011
On tap at the brewpub during the most recent bottle release. This was one of seven witbiers on tap. The beer pours a hazy red color with a pink head. Very odd looking beer. The aroma is heavy on the hibiscus with some wheat mixed in. The flavor is also very floral. I get a ton of flowers and hibiscus as well as a lot of sugar and some citrus notes. The beer is very sweet and by the end of the pint glass it gets hard to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2011
12 oz. brown bottle from Battle of Wits 4 pack. A very nice looking red almost pink beer with a small head. Totally caught me off guard when I poured it as it looks like a fruit beer. It has a nice look. The aroma smells like berries and wheat. Very good fruit scent. The taste is almost like a watered down fruit punch with some wheat. There also is a slight tartness on the tongue with moderate carbonation.
