I had high hopes for this one, and came away disappointed. The initial pour was pretty, grapefruit pink with a crisp head, but the effervescence totally disappeared within a minute or two. The nose had a bit of a barnyard sour smell to it, although notes of yeast and urine became apparent a the longer it say out. Taste was underwhelming, muddled tropical fruit, slightly bitter, and not particularly assertive. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andrew_drinks (217) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle at home via Mikkeller online. Cage twist broke, so getting into this was a Herculean effort... once open, pours a bright burnt amber, not too far off something like Westons cider, with a small white head that doesn’t linger. Aroma of soft funk, some peach, apricot and rosehips. Solid carbonation, thin and refreshing. Lightly tart, some lime in evidence along with some slight Brett character. Very drinkable to start with but a woody astringency lurks at the back of the palate, which is the main problem here.

Gription79 (2407) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 1, 2015
poured from a 750 ml bottle. Pours a pink melon color with a bright white head. The aroma is amazing, fruity, slightly tart, soft herbal note, berries. The flavor is herbal, tannic, soft berry notes, fruity. The flavors are very delicate. The dry astringency is distracting.

fidelis83 (2092) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Clear pink-orange pour with a one finger, sudsy, bright white head. Aroma is bretty funk, sweet citrus, tart floral notes and a bit of sweet cereal. Essentially everything you’d expect from the commercial description, maybe a bit more sweet smelling than I expected. Flavor is sweet and tart floral notes right away, some toast, sweet, lightly nutty and cereal malt, leafy, spicy hops, sweet and sour stone fruit, light minerality and some nice tart and lightly bitter citrus. The hibiscus is present, but thankfully (pleasingly) more of a supporting role. Light body, light to moderate acidity, a feel that plays between juicy and dry and medium, blanketing carbonation. Really good stuff, great complexity and many components that could easily muscle everything else out, but just the right balance so that they play nice together and everything gets its turn.
