Pours gold, some etched top. Good clarity. Smells like hibiscus, some sour - this vaguely reminds me of mamoche - but diet version. Flavor is tart (meh) and some earth and florals. Dry with a thin body. Gotta be honest, if I saw this on the shelf, I would probably walk by with the price point.

Bottle shared by Al, pours hazy golden with white head. Notes are clean for rare barrel with peach and lemon skin funk, hibiscus, brett, candy, and passionfruit. Lighter to medium body. One of the better rare barrels.

Bottle - Pours hazy golden with no head. Sugary white grape, lightly lemon sour, and a touch of oak. Not getting much from the hibiscus. White grape with a sugary sourness, lemon, and a little oak. Slick and medium-bodied.

The hibiscus and the tang from the barrels add such a nice deep aroma, the flavor is spot on, it’s like going back to Belgium, without all the cost.

Hazy golden in color... Aroma of citrus, pineapple, pears... Flavor is light and fruity initially, notes of airy cotton candy in the middle, tropical fruits, light tartness on palate... Amazing

The was sampled at the Kick Starter event for the Humboldt Cider Company to get their new tasting room completed. Pour was a golden color with a tiny white head and and light lacing rings. Nose of sour funk with some citrus and fruit. Medium in body the mouth feel is lively. Flavor is citrus, with lots of sourness. Sour finish but lots of flavor stays to the end. Very nice.
