Threesome Ale – Red Arrow Brewing

From Duncan BC’s Red Arrow Brewing comes their “Threesome Ale” a beer combining Hemp, hibiscus and honey. The beer pours a reddish colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of honey, hibiscus, herbal notes and a sweetness. The flavour is of herbal from hops or hemp, hibiscus tea, honey some mild bitterness and a mild sweetness in the finish. The alcohol content comes in at 5.3%. Maybe not amazing but it was an enjoyable mix of flavours to be sure. I wouldn’t hesitate to try it again for sure.
