3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A slight red tint to slightly amber with a white head. The aroma is of soft fermented fruits. The beer hits the back of the palate and has a good body. It is missing clear distinctions but it does finish clean. Not bad.
Bottle sample from backlog notes (late 13/early 14). Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma was bad, vegetal, skunky with some spice and light tart fruit. The flavor was better but not what they described, skip this. higgsbison (275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2017

Red color, thin bubbles. Mild, poor smell of off flavors. Reasonable palate, but not good for style as needs more airiness. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Poured into a snifter.
2.25 A: Clear light amber color. One finger of foamy light tan head that falls as quickly as it forms.
2.75 S: Tangy toastiness with caramel. Tart apple. Simple, but not too bad. Doesn’t smell like a saison at all though. It may smell like a dilute flanders beer though.
2.5 T: Tastes like it smells, but even weaker. Toast, caramel, a touch of tart fruit. Ehhh.
2.75 M: Light body. Good moderate carbonation. Just the slightest creaminess.
2.5 D: It’s not terrible, it’s just not very flavorful. It should do well with it’s targeted audience though. It’s neutral and not powerful enough to overwhelm the taste buds.

Bottle from the warehouse. Pours a clear amber-red with an off-white head. Nose is some mild cherry, some malt, mild lactic character, and a light tartness. Flavor is similar with light cherry, some malt, some lactic, and a light tartness that fades immediately. Light in body and not bad overall.

I acquired this in a swap, so I only had one. I reviewed it the other day and something happened, and it didn’t go through. So going off memory.coldbrewky (1731) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2015
I remember the pour best. It was bronze color. Cloudy with a thin not quite white head.
Aroma was nicely floral. Maybe a little spicy.
Flavor was a little spicy bitter. Malt was a little heavier than the hops. It was a little too watery.
Mouthfeel was medium light. Strangely bitter but it was pleasant on the palate. Tricky finish, first its clean and then comes back bitter.
Overall its pretty good. A little boring, and not quite what I was expecting. I was hoping for a little more from the hibiscus. It’s not something I think I would buy again, but then again, I didn’t buy this one.
There are no noticeable spices present... some sweetness that quickly goes tart...reminiscent of raspberry or strawberry. Mer. Not bad for 6.99 a sixer at the rip and run.... easily drinkable but also easily forgettable. A skoash on the boring side. ozzy70 (1334) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 7, 2015
12 oz. bottle into pint glass. Amber colored with small head. Aroma, malty and fruit. Fruity, wheat and malty taste. Not a favorite Blue Moon. CharmCityCrab (249) - Maryland, USA - JUL 30, 2015
A bit watered down and what is there is a bit sweet and cloying. There’s a note of strawberries in it that I don’t think are actual strawberries, just a flavor created by the yeast or something. It being a bit watered down saves it from being disgusting. You can throw one of these back and not mind it. But I wouldn’t seek it out. Go for their Cinnamon Horchata instead if you have your pick of bottles from their summer mix pack. SG111 (2145) - New York, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Bottled. Best by 10/26/15. Pours golden amber, thin white head. Aroma is caramel malt, sweet sticky malt, light toffee, (very) light citrus hops. Meh Aroma. Flavor is sweet. Very sweet. Sweet cherry, dark fruit, plum, light cinnamon spice. not great. Not super generic ale which is what it smells like. But it’s sweet and not super pleasant.
