GT2 (8281) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Tap at Bridge Tap House in St. Louis, MO. Cloudy grapefruit juice pour. Weaker foam. Beautiful color. One of the best colors I’ve seen for hibiscus wit. Nose is boss. Taste is boss. This brewery kicks butt. Very impressive. Great hibiscus fruity flavor with mild sweet raspberry popsicle. Fresh berry smoothie aroma. Shockingly good. Huge lacing, sheets on second pour. Great for summer. Finally, someone knows how to make a hibiscus wit. Love this brewery. 4 of 4 beers sampled were the bomb.

seymour (1401) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Tasted at the 2012 St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival from tap into sampler glass. Poured a cloudy light golden color with fluffy white head, long-lasting with some lace. In almost every sense true-to-style Belgian Wit, which is to say tasty and refreshing, plus additional flowery/perfumey Hibiscus flower essence. Unique and well-crafted, highly recommended.

bhensonb (10794) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 25, 2012
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dishwater gold with a frothy/bubbly white head. I think the aroma actually is hibiscus. Weird. Med body. Flavor is belgian yeast/spice and arguably citrus, but there’s a weird herb/floral that seems hibiscus. With maybe a hint of tobacco and/or leather. This is astringent and dry. Who’d a thought a this.

750 from Wine and Cheese Place in St. Louis. Light, refreshing wit with no traditional wit characteristics. Perfume. Floral. And grape.

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Tap at Bailey’s Range June 2012-pours cloudy orange with vigorous carbonation and a sprtizy white slightly rocky head. nose is big spice, corriander lemon and orange peale some lite floral aspects as well. very pleasant nose. wow, flavors really showcase the orange peal and hibiscus very well. Definitely a well made wit here-palate is sharp, but consistent with the style albiet maybe a tad thin. However, this is very nice for a session beer, if it were a bit more affordable.

When smelled, this beer’s aromatic blend of a general floral scent with wheat, sweet bread malts, sour dough yeast makes you fall in love; then, the cloudy golden color and medium white head give you high hopes. The taste is mildly sour and mildly sweet, but this isn’t too bad of a flavor; it is very drinkable. Then, the medium body, soft carbonation, the slick texture, and sweet finish round it off beautifully.

deyholla (6511) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Samples from the tap at the Bridge. Pours a near clear pinkish amber with a a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of earthy wheat with a light tart hibiscus underlying. Flavor has a tart hibiscus with more of a balanced wheat note and a touch of earthiness.

Draft on tap at The Bridge (St Louis, MO). Pours a gentle glowing reddish pink copper hue, a good hazy body, a bit darker in the middle with frothy offwhite head, sticks around as a nice layer, laces ok. Aromas are a bit tart, florals and hibiscus elements, faint tartness with flaked wheat, bready malt and gentle earthiness. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some nice tartness, bits of flaked wheat with tart hibiscus. A touch of of coriander, gentle grass and florals with a bit of sweetness, faint spiciness, touches of orange and gentle citrus. Backend is a bit tart, touches of hibiscus, gentle lemon grass and citrus. A touch bitter with nice fruity pop, a touch of body. Nice stuff, a good run of the gambit with gentle orange fruit and peel, touches of hibiscus. Nice stuff.
