3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazed dark golden.. the head rises quickly and dies just as fast... a light cap allows for spotty lacing.
Nose has plenty of hibiscus present... the wheat beer base is also well represented.
Plenty of wheat again on the palate... the hibiscus is tart and accentuated by the residual maltiness...
Body is a touch thicker than I would have expected, but it is appreciated... Light medium with a good small bubble carbonation.
Decent beer... Not sure that I would ever buy it in a 6-pack, but the hibiscus works well as an educational tool.

A hazed golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light grassy malt with light hibiscus acidity, light musty character, OK. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with light grassy hops, light orange notes, light mineral notes, light acidity, OK if a bit tired.

Yellow with a pretty thin head. Sl floral / perfume nose. Pretty sweet on the palate like a macro lager. Could really have used as bit more bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice wheat nose, bread, slightly grainy. I don’t know what Hibiscus flower smell like, but it does have a slight floral aroma. Appearance is a cloudy orange pour with a medium white head that diminishes quickly Taste is grainy wheat, and actually quite interesting. I don’t really know how to explain it. Just that it’s quite good. Palate is medium to low carbonation in the mouth and a lingering wheat aftertaste. Overall, Quite nice. Cheers!

"Hmmm. interesting and refreshing. Light fruityness, slightly herbal, a touch of sweet and juuust a splash of tartness. For a lawnmower type beer, pretty nice. I’d try again."

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.

12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 41°. 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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
