2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz can sampled while visiting home in IL, June 2014. Pink pour (kewwwwwl) with a small pink head, mild lacing. Floral aroma, mild orange peel, a wisp of doughy malts, and an undeniable butter aspect. Ugh, unfortunately the flavor is the same - butter overly present, floral, earthy, a bit of bread dough, mild citrus. Had to force myself through my cans of this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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
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.
