12 oz. can, single from Lemon Tree. Even the first bit of beer in the glass has amber color with pinkish highlights. Foam fizzles away pretty quickly. Malted notes with just a bit of flower to it, perhaps some chamomile. Malts are pretty forward, with a side impression of rose petal, but again, not overly flowery. A good thing because then Iíd start thinking about shampoo. Instead, the malts stick to my lips, and there a nice edge of flower or watermelon on a beer thatís not delicate, but quite substantial.

ben4321 (3916) - 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 (4887) - 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 (819) - 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 (631) - 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 isnít 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 - Iíve enjoyed Revís offerings to date, but this one was a bit of a disappointment...

Ed5388 (2091) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2014
12oz can from JohnGonk. Pours a crystal clear pinkish amber color with a finger of fast fading foamy white head. Aroma of sour fruit, light funk, floral hops, and hibiscus flowers. Taste of perfume, grain, hibiscus flowers, bitter floral hops, banana peel,and lemon zest. Couldnít get the aroma of old lady perfume out of my nose after every sip.

dmac (4007) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2014
12oz can shared with Ed. Poured a clear thinner copper body with a smaller off white head that quickly and totally dissipates. Aroma/flavor, syrupy hops, perfume, honey comb and wax, lavender and hibiscus. Palate, had lighter carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Meh

Ktwse (1994) - SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2014
Pours cloudy orange amber with low white head. Aroma of orange peel, caramel, hibiscus, light vanilla. Taste is sweet, orangey, light tart finish. Body is light and smooth with average carbonation.

adnielsen (9081) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2014
In the can @ home, thanks to TheAlum for sending. Pours a pinkish / dark orange appearance with a tan head. Definitely some butter in the nose along with potpourri, grass, hay, and hibiscus. Decent mouth feel. Moderate carbonation. Fairly dry. Some citrus and floral notes. More butter in the mouth. Not something Iíd want again.

As I poured this into a Rock Bottom shaker from the twelve ounce can, I was glad that I was trying this brew at home rather than at a southwest-side Chicago bar (my usual venue for public imbibings) because of its pinkish amber body (with a minimalistís white head). Iím getting too old íní tired to have to defend my drinking preferences.
It has a sweet floral aroma (this, too, hurts on the southwest-side) along with some caramel. The flavor has a sweet caramel base upon which I get an odd floral sweetness. Thereís a soft underlying quiet and subtle earthy bitterness. The finish is a tad sticky sweet, but not unbearingly so.
This ainít a bad drink, really, but youíre better off not ordering one in the kind of joints that I find myself in.
