3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pours clear and yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. To me, the aroma seems to feature fennel and lemongrass, but knowing this beer contains neither of those herbs, it must be either the elderflower or the rosehips or both. I don’t know. I’ve never smelled an elderflower and I don’t eat or drink anything containing rosehips. Anyway, this brew is full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is tart, herbal and spicy up front; then bready and tangy on the backside. Bottle courtesy of 50belair!

Hazy gold beer, big fluffy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and a bit over carbonated. Semi dry and a little crispy. Sweetish floralness. Light Hibiscus led fruits. Finishes airy and tangy with a little banana ester coming in. Decent but not turning cartwheels here.
