superspak (2824) - Michigan, USA - DEC 6, 2014
12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 4/30/2014. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of berries, pear, apple, white grape, orange peel, flowers, honey, bread, herbal, grass, and herbal/floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale/bready malt and hibiscus/orange peel spice notes; with decent strength. Taste of berries, pear, apple, white grape, orange peel, flowers, honey, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/floral earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness/tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of berries, pear, apple, white grape, orange peel, flowers, honey, bread, and herbal/floral earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of pale/bready malts and hibiscus/orange peel spice flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance and minimal cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a pretty good hibiscus spiced beer. Good balance and robustness of pale/bready malt and hibiscus/orange peel spice flavors; and very smooth and fairly crisp to drink. A pleasant and enjoyable offering.

Beardaxe (263) - - DEC 6, 2014
Poured from can into pint glass. Moderate lingering head and pleasant transparent pink color. Nice fruity aroma that entices. The flavor fails to live up to the aroma, however. The sweetness suggested in the aroma doesn't show up and any sort of hibiscus flavor is far too muted. It sits in the distant background and teases you. You want to get to it, but you never will. Instead you'll sit with a mediocre beer and wonder why.

cpetrone84 (1531) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Pour is deep orangish amber with a yellowish white head. Nose is heavily caramel malt with a faint touch of adjunct grain and a little orange citrus. Taste follows pretty close, a bit more citrus, adjunct grains, overly sweet malt. Medium body, moderate carb, clean finish.

Pours a clear reddish tinged orange with white head. Aroma of sweet malt and light fruit. Flavor of light fruit, malt, and light citrus in the finish.

JStax (3232) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Can pour into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber with a pinkish head of foam. The aroma is hibiscus sweetness. Oddly reminds me of sweet tea. Aittle metallic in taste. Lighter body and medium carbonation.

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Location: Draft at the Milwaukee Ave Brewpub, 7/16/14

Aroma: The nose is on the sweet side, orange/other fruit, floral, herbal, and some candy notes
Appearance: This one pours a clear reddish-pink color with an off-white head and decent lace
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, on the sweet side for sure, with some floral/herbal notes
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a pretty solid overall mouthfeel, and a clean finish
Overall Impression: I enjoyed this beer well enough. Definitely something that should be tried. More of an enjoyable thirst quencher than a standout beer, but still something easily enjoyed.

JaBier (4995) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2014
On tap at Local Cantina Creekside. Clear pink in color with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malt, slight caramel and floral notes. Malty and floral flavor with light caramel before a bitter and floral finish.

fraternie (843) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2014
A bizarre offering, with a rose colored pink body that shows light flavors of floral hibiscus and nectarine above subtle caramel notes that quickly give way into a bread lager-ish aftertaste, offering little hop presence or nuance through the finish.

valpoaj (635) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Translucent purple pour with a robust off white head that recedes quickly. Aroma is flowery, sweet, fruity - easy going, and not bad. Flavor isn’t particularly enticing - light, caramelized malts, hint of citrus, very little bitterness to add any balance...nothing that bad, but nothing that good either. Glad I got this in a mixed sixer - I’ve enjoyed Rev’s offerings to date, but this one was a bit of a disappointment...
