on tap @ Farmhouse in Chicago. Bright pink-orange colour, minimal head. Aroma is yeasty and perfumey. Flavours of pale malts and subtle hibiscus flowers. Pretty light. DDC makes a more nuanced and refreshing hibiscus ale.

From a can smell of older lager. Not as pink colored as I expected, actually more like a slightly darker pale ale. Taste is slightly tart but for the most part this beer comes across more like your typical fruit beer. Good co2. However, there is this slight rude background in there. Finish is typical unsweetened fruit beer. Not impressed but that slight tartness takes the edge off of it.

On tap at Mash Tun Festival 2013. Pour is pinkish orange with a small foamy head. Aroma is pretty similar to a pale lager - gain, caramel, flowers, biscuit. Flavor is on the sweeter side with a mellow, refreshing finish.

Bomber from a trade. Pours unclear orange with red tint and smallish white head. Smell is flowery, pink candy, sweet malts. Taste is a lightly hopped pale ale with some lightly sweet and tart floral aspect. Taste is not as artificial as the nose indicates.

12 oz. can and on tap, several times. Pours a bright pink with a pink tinted head. Aroma of hibiscus, orange peel, floral notes. Flavor is similiar, floral and citrus notes balanced by light malty sweetness. Light bodied, effervescent. Finishes with a twinge of bitterness. Nice, light beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had on tap at Blue’s BBQ. Served in a taster glass.
A: This hibiscus really lends its color here. Pours a rosy color with some amber highlights. A thin white head forms on the pour and recedes to a thin ring that leaves some nice webbing of lace.
S: The hibiscus is present on the nose. Light and sweet smelling. Minimal hops with a nice cracker malt backbone.
T: Nice malty sweetness with the bright hibiscus coming through. Some orange pith with a light bitterness on the finish.
M: Light bodied with a bubbly, medium high carbonation level. Nice drinkability.
O: Nice flowery flavors that’s easily drinkable. Wouldn’t be my go to choice on a hot summer’s day, but it’s a nice option if nothing else is around.

Like a very light beer with pink food color. Slight floral note, dry finish. For a floral beer more slight hopping is needed.

Aroma has hints of wheat and hibiscus, just a touch of tartness is noticeable. It pours a slightly reddish amber, with an off white head. Very light bodied beer, with a slightly sweet floral taste. Not a bad summer beer.

Pours a copper amber with a beige head and aroma of floral notes. Taste is of wine notes, caramel malt, light fruit, and grains with a dry finish. Wasn’t a fan of this one
