3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2013 On tap, and a full, rock glass sampler from Josh at Warren’s Ale House in Wheaton, IL.. Showed a cloudy, pink grapefruit appearance, with a light layer of white foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was floral, hibuscus, mild ginger, and light fruitiness. Light bodied, effervescent, with some grapefruity flavor notes, sweetness, but mainly tart & pleasantly dry. Mild but refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Jerry’s. A hibiscus-ginger saison, brewed for a shark benefit during "Shark Week". Pale rose with light, white head, light lacing / Lightly sweet, fresh, almost soda pop nose of hibiscus, citrus, grass / Light body, soft carbonation, acidic, some sweetness but dry in the middle with good balance and light bitterness on the finish / Flavors of hibiscus, cut lemongrass, ginger, Jolly Rancher, resin, straw / Nothing profound, but enjoyable in a light, fresh, summer patio sort of way.
