Clownoisseur (325) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Bottle. Pours a vibrant pink-rose color. Fizzy pink head that breaks into some light lacing. Aromas nice and bright with lemon zest, hibiscus spiciness, light breads and another helping of light farmhouse/floral notes. Taste is slightly tart zest upfront, with an herbal backbone of hibiscus, hay, fresh cut flowers and lemon zestiness. Nice balance and harmony into a clean crisp finish.

tectactoe (2714) - Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle: Super cloudy deep copper & burnt amber with a quickly fading eggshell head that lasts forever as a timid collar. Aroma of Bretty cotton, musk, hibiscus, floral notes, a touch of citrus flesh, faint wood, & a bit of spicy yeast. Flavor is crisp with some faint red apple, grape, & a good amount of funky brettanomyces, Mild citrus flesh, damp cotton, & some crisp, dry funk that lasts into a dry, woodsy aftertaste. Hints of floral notes, faint lemon, & citrus lingering long into the finish. Really nice stuff.

Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate florals/hibiscus, lemon, lemon peel, citrus, and a touch of oak. It pours a hazy amber with a small white head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a very fine ring. The flavor starts with a a quick dose of citrus. The finish has moderate sour lemon with some light florals/hibiscus, and a touch of sour oak. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation.

RickTheRick (512) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
La bière porte sa plus belle robe de soirée d’un rosé aux teintes rougeâtres vives. Une mousse moyenne se dissipe rapidement du liquide trouble. Le bouquet est plus végétal que floral, à mon grand étonnement. Les odeurs de "ferme" sont dominent le côté fruité et délicat, mais en bouche, c’est tout le contraire. Citrique, bien pétillante, l’acidité est parfaite. L’hibiscus et le citron s’enchevêtrent à merveille à chaque gorgée, celles-ci me rappellant un été pas si lointain.

jmgreenuk (5236) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Kermis. Poured a hazy straw colour with a frothy broken white head. The aroma is sour yeast. The flavour is moderate sour with a light watery yeast sour mineral acidic palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Refreshing but a little too light all round and a little one dimensional to be honest.
