b3shine (6576) - Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2015
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks adnielsen). Looks good; a very cloudy guava with fizzy white head that has a slight pink hue to it. Smells good; yeasty with a bit of funk alongside a nicely balanced mild hibiscus presence. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. The funk isn’t there and is replaced by additional yeastiness. Still good though. A little earthiness as well, but no funk. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and pleasantly lively. Enjoyable, but smells better than it tastes.

Stine (1657) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle nearly a year old. Watermelon pink-red hue, slightly hazed, random lacing. Hibiscus, sweet and fragrant lemon oil, basement air and mildew in the aroma, with the latter notes sometimes leaning toward wet concrete or silty river water, clay-like mineral perfume. Likely has lost a measure of assertiveness. The colors are certain, if shown in pastel shades. The flavor offers preserved lemon, hibiscus, and an ebullient tangerine sweetness. Understated overall, and while simple, not simplistic. The texture has been worn somewhat, but the comfortable acid level combined with the just tight enough carbonation make this highly drinkable. This one is clearly age-weary in some respects, which is my own fault. The flavorings are nevertheless very evidently dialed in at pleasing frequencies, and the softness and mineral intrigue are present as ever.

Mr_Abner (175) - Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours a beautiful red color with a fluffy white head that has a pinkish hue. Lots of messy lacing on the glass after a few sips. Smells of lemon, citrus, floral notes, HF yeast. Tastes similar; floral, lemon, citrus. Lightly tart. Medium bodied; carbonation is a touch soft. Very nice.

Franckg (465) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2015
Robe rouge-orangée légèrement voilée. Fin col de mousse blanc, dentelle mince, un peu huileuse et collante. Arômes de bretts, citron, fraise, foin frais. Bien florale et acidulée. En bouche, des saveurs de citron et de bretts prennent les devant rapidement. S’en suis un transition où la fleur d’hibiscus se démarque et offre des effluves florales et fruitées rappelant les fraises et framboises des champs. Les bretts et citron enveloppent le tout, tout en étant subtils et légers. L’effervescence produit de fines bulles qui donne un côté pétillant et originale. Amertume légère et florale. Excellente bière.
