Revolution Rosa
« on: June 07, 2014, 10:04:12 AM »


I thought I would share the really nice summer beer from a local Chicago brewery. It's a quaffable ale brewed with hibiscus flowers at 5.8%.

Pours with a slight pink short lived head and almost no lacing. Color leans toward amber watermelon-ish and quite clear. Has a very pleasant hibiscus floral aroma and taste and finishes slightly dry on the palette. Hops are a nice balance but can't really be detected in bitter or aroma.

I've now had this several times both on draft and in the can and I'm becoming a big fan of it!

I was at the brewery on wednesday.  They make some good brews.  I didn't try that one though but i was there at noon and didn't want to to over do it.
