3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a large foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of cucumber and hibiscus which combine to form watermelon candy with a bit of a spiciness. Some caramel malts in there as well. The taste is strong, bitter and herbal cucumber, spicy hibiscus notes in the finish. Muted caramel malts. Certainly an odd beer, but it’s solid.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks Solid; a cloudy deep orange with thin off-white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells of cucumber with a bit of a malt backbone. Tastes like it smells, only less pleasant, with an average (at best mouthfeel). I think it might be the hibiscus throwing it off. Not my thing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours deep gold into a shaker. Off-white head with little retention recedes to skim surface. Very sweet hibiscus and wax lips aromas. Sharp with cucumber and hay upfront turning to cherry lip balm before the dry, bitter lasting flowery finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Spirits Cross Roads. Poured a clear burnt orange body with a large bubble foamy head. Aroma was interesting and reminded me of walking into a Bath and Body Works, crips and clean with the cucumber coming through big time along with light hibiscus. Medium body with assertive carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor isn’t quite as crisp as the aroma with a dry malt foretaste followed by hibiscus and juicy cucumber and a dry grassy hop finish. Interesting.
