OK, I like Brian and his beers a lot, and I’ll go far out of my way to try his concoctions, and have not been disappointed. This one, though, misses the mark - the aroma is a bit strange, but maybe just because I’m not used to hibiscus. The taste is a bit plain and underwhelming. Oh well. I’m still looking forward to his next recipe.
