3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap @ Farmhouse in Chicago. Bright pink-orange colour, minimal head. Aroma is yeasty and perfumey. Flavours of pale malts and subtle hibiscus flowers. Pretty light. DDC makes a more nuanced and refreshing hibiscus ale.
Pink hued amber color with an off-pink head (taller). Dry grains and light herbal scent. Light sweetness in the front. Hints of rose oil, light currants, and grenadine. Interesting, but nothing I’m getting excited about. 8/13 Would like to try a really fresh sample (hint, hint, JMS).

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2017 Slightly sweet in the nose. Malty start mives to sour floral finish. Pretty decent ale. DiarmaidBHK (4797) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Can from Julio's liquors. Pours a reddish brown with a small white head. Has some floral notes on the nose. It's a basic amber ale on the tongue. Finished clean. Eh!

Can. Nose sweet and very fruity. Pour is a wonderful apricot that darkens in the direction of ruby while collecting in the glass, hazy with orange and light brown tones, supporting a large and beautifully rocky beige head. Taste medium sweet, low bitterness, fresh and revitalizing wheat-yeasty character of American wheats. Raspberry puree / powder? It doesn’t feel artificial, at least. Tart medium body, very refreshing, very nice. [2016.09.04: 3.6] MrTipple (4803) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2016
Grain and bread malts, floral hops. Clear amber, small, frothy, off-white head. Medium bitter. Floral hops continue, bitterness intensifies. Nice aroma but palate is a bit a miss. Keg at brewpub, Chicago.

Drinking this from the can provided by friend Todd S, so can’t really attest as to its appearance. Don’t think it makes much difference as the flavor just doesn’t work on any level - sticky sweet caramel hibiscus tart. evanrail (74) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 6, 2016
Ugh... Red forest fruits / red berries, with a slight vegetal / medicinal note in the finish. Not completely disgusting, but if I never have to drink this again, I’ll be fine with it. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2016
I wasn't sure what this was going to be like, but it turned out to be sort of a herbal tea beer with a little red berry in it. Nice.

Not really that good but it is interesting to day the least. A little to hibuscusy. arkurzynski (2415) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Reddish amber. Nose of light, sweet, floral fruit. Flavor is slightly tart, yeasty fruit with a floral twist. Light diacetyl.
