2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at JP. Red/pink pour with no foam at all. I couldn’t wait to try this, so no need to say I was pretty disapointed. Aroma was one dimensional, all flowers and grass but enjoyable. You could really feel hibiscus. Taste was earthy, lots of hibiscus. Like eating earth. Medium bodied with very low carbonation making this one impossible to drink within an hour. Didn’t finish my glass.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at Jolly Pumpkin Ann Arbor - Pours ruby red and an aroma of malt and dark fruit. The flavor has tart fruit, sweet malt, and finishes with some mild dryness. It’s well balanced and interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Jolly Pumpkin A2. Pours a clear ruby pink with a white head that had a strong pink hue and dissipated slowly to the edges and laced slightly. Aroma was full of hibiscus with a bit of a tart fruit backing and hints of sweet fruit. Flavor is a bit thin with a combination of tart fruit and hibiscus. Needs a bit more.
