It poured a lightly hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of hibiscus and floral notes with a touch of wheat malt. The taste was similar and a little dry. It had a light body with crisp carbonation. Nice.

RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2013
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 41į. Color is a deep gold with a slight haze And good carbonation that gives it a small soft head. Aroma of honey and a bit of fruity hops. It has a lighter medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor is wheat that comes across sweet with a hint of white pepper, a light fruit note and the hibiscus showing on the end. In the after taste the sweet lingers giving it a honey taste. Overall its a nice, easy drinking brew with a unique flavor palate.

bergstaden (1213) - RÝros, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2013
Hazy dark golden with a white head - Wheat and malt aroma - Thin malt body that is a little sweet - short thin malt finish - Did not care for this, to thin and sweet

BeerKurve (497) - - NOV 9, 2013
Pale hazy yellow color with a large yet fizzy head and decent lacing. Pale malts, wheat and floral hops and flowers permeate the nose. Wheat, pale malts, grassiness, and some flowery sweetness which I assume is hibiscus. Aftertaste is a earthy grassy flavor that sticks around for a long time. Body is moderate with some moderate carbonation. Good idea but lacks flavor.

kevinator (887) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Average beer with a little twist. Faint wheat and grassy smell. Cloudy yellow color with a white head. Lighter weight palate with average carbonation. A little foamy. Tastes were of wheat and grains. Iím not sure what hibiscus tastes like so I guess the slightly unique flavor could be associated with that. Easy to drink but not very exciting.

Bottle. Light wheat beer with mild flavors. Cloudy gold beer with no head. Aroma is a little sour, lots of carbonation, medium light body. Nothing bad here

SamP01 (556) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy yellow orange with a large lasting white head. Aroma and taste is sweet citrus, light wheat and banana notes, fruity with some floral essence and mild bitterness. A light to medium body, crisp, refreshing on the palate with light carbonation. Some sweet malt, wheat, floral essence and light fruity and mild bitterness on the end. A nicely balanced brew, refreshing and enjoyable.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Drink by September 2013. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Appearance: A slightly hazy yellow-orange color... about what I was expecting. Two fingers of head doesnít last too long, and thereís some really spotty lacing. Eh. Smell: It sounds so generic, but itís just true ... it smells like a wheat beer. The wheat, yeast, hops... yep, smells like beer. The malt aroma is also there quite a bit.. smells like crystal or caramel sort of malts. Taste: Tastes like an average wheat beer. The hibiscus thatís said to be in this is somewhat there, but not enough to make this particularly interesting. Pretty sweet throughout with very little bitterness, if any. Aftertaste is somewhat odd... the feel is kind of thin, and thereís a bit of an artificial sweet flavor on the finish as well. Itís really drinkable, but itís extremely forgettable.
