Aroma is wheat, salt/minerals and herbs. The flavor is citrus, salt/minerals, wheat, fruit and a mix of sour, tart and dryish/slight funk in the finish. deyholla (12189) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 10, 2017

This beer pours a pretty cloudy salmon-purple color with a thin pinkish-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Floral and herbal aroma with some fruity notes. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal tea, mildly tart hibiscus and yeast. The finish is mildly tart with a lemony tea aftertaste. Above average overall.

Shared bomber poured to snifters displaying a cloudy, orangey, ruby grapefruit juice look, with modest, quickly diminishing, soft white head foam, and some light lacing that also faded. The nose was esters as orange & berry, subtle perfume, slight grain, and more of a medium tartness than lactic sour. Herb & tea were tough to distinguish. Light bodied, with fair effervescence, and texture that was somewhat watery, the taste followed in like fashion as the aroma, with a similar amount of tartness, and some dryness to the finish. A bit washed out. Expected more. Would have appreciated a touch of syrup to assist in this case. jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2016
Draft at Old Irving. First off, this thing had an amazing look, mostly because of the hibiscus. It was a light pink, red color. The head was slightly sour but with the floral and, hmmm, earthiness of the tea. The taste followed through fairly well with a lot of the brightness, sourness, lemon, tea flavors. Refreshing. A good summer-type beer (even though it’s October!). TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2016
22oz bottle acquired from The Beer Temple (Chicago, IL). Been awhile since I’ve been in and there is oh so much new. Pours a hibiscus tinged pinkish purple hazy pour, darker middle with lively cascading bubbles and an alluring Rose like appeal and glow through the body. Creamy whitish pink head atop is full, lush, and remains a firm enough layer. Frothy and nice lacing throughout. Aromas present an earthy and lactic twang, yogurt and citric appeal meet woody, tea, teaberry, hibiscus and and herbal pop. A mellow spiciness, dust, and woody funk meet that hibiscus, lactic pop, lemon and yogurty acidity. Initial is lighter bodied, fizzy and lively up front with pop, hibiscus, subtle berry and lactic twanginess. Dry, very fuzzy, with a refreshing herbal pop. Some woody tea, kiss of bready malts, subtle straw. The lactic element is decent but falls behind a bit, the tea and spritzy fuzzy palate presence kinda sets the tone for this particular release. Dry, a bit of brut-like appeal with a decent lactic kick. A dry, herbal, and almost hibiscus like tea appeal gives a unique character. Decent lactic twang, punchy up front but fading as we press on through the backend and finish. Dry, earthy, herbal, and tart overall. Pretty fun stuff. A very alluring pour, pleasant nose, good flavor and especially fun flow and feel on the palate. Very nice Berliner, unique, from the Pipeworks guys. Especially after the more flabby Raspberry version they re-released recently. Very nice. crossovert (13833) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2016
650ml bottle. This has a blend of teas including red tea which im assuming gives it the color which is a pinkish orange. Aroma is berliner-type lacto, horseblanket, hay, with some tropical tea notes, tea is readily noticeable. Flavor is again tart, very tropical, im assuming hibiscus tea was used, it has a light bit of biscuity wheat but this is delicious, a tropical berliner.
