3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Bottled March 31st 2016. 7% ABV per the label. Pours a thick, gradually reducing, pinkish white head, with some lacing, over a hazy pink amber (SRM 13) body........nose is floral hibiscus, ginger, light malts, minimal hops......taste is slightly sweet with heavy hibiscus tones, light ginger, finishing with hints of hop bitterness, and light pepper......mouth feel, sticky, light of medium body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation with nice acid notes. This is a very floral, soft, pleasant beer to drink. It is a bit muddled in flavors, as the hibiscus and spice do bang together. Additionally, rating it as a Saison, it misses the style quite badly and could use an almost total recipe rework. BJCP 5/2/10/4/5
