durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Bottle at Carolina Crew tasting. Saw this on sale at Sam’s and was put off by all the spices. Overall, though, this was a very solid beer. Cloudy bright orange pour with white head. Tart aroma. Citrus, rosehips, vegetable notes. Some bread. Solid, and a nice low-alcohol beer. Great way to start off the night.

Carolina Crew tasting. Bottle courtesy of Todd! Thanks! Hazy light amber pour with fluffy white head. Tart aroma. Tart up front with a floral finish

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2008
In short: A perfumy rose-water based beer. Girly and sickeningly aromatic
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed some 6 months after the beer release. Sample at Cathschlag birthday party tasting
The look: Cloudy blonde body with big ugly chunks of yeast topped by a short-lived white head
In long: The floral aspect of this one goes has flower petals and the likes but goes way beyond that, this is downright rose water, perfume and other romantic girly aromatic notes. Some fruity notes (mainly grapefruits) feel like and added flavour to a rose water drink rather than the other way around. Body is watery. Light sensation of cleaning product. Not even refreshing, just annoying. What the fuck were my drinking partners drinking giving positive review to that gross girly perfumy beer, I haven’t anything so gay since Dancing With The Stars: Special Hairdressers.

bhensonb (11066) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 25, 2008
750 ml bottle opened with quite a pop. Aromas of citrus, unknown spice and yeast? Hazy orange tinged gold color with a minimal white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. A slightly brett-like sour for flavor with light spice, some yeast, and a lot of lighter fruits. I think I detect a little rose oil on the palate. Only a slight floral hoppiness. Reasonably dry. There’s a lot going on here. It’s very fresh and refreshing. A session ale for sure.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JUN 8, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2008 Artebirra Pasturana 2008: nell’aroma il pepe predomina un po’ su tutto il resto, mentre nel sapore sbucano sambuco e miele, però non ho percepito molto di più; non mi pareva molto in forma, dovrei assaggiarla di nuovo per capire se è stata una sfiga mia o se è sempre così. Un poco una delusione. ______Riassaggiata alla spina all’Isola della Birra... tutta un’altra cosa. Aggiorno il voto

Pours a hazy orange color with a thin white head. Aroma of honey, citrus and other fruits and spices. Good flavor of honey, fruits including citrus and spices, there is some dryness along the way. The body is light with a powdery texture and gentle carbonation. This beer is interesting considering the low abv%.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Cloudy light straw color with a broken head. Odd vinegary/brine aroma, light spicy, a hint of funk. Lightly briny taste, some citrus, grain. As with the Te, the brine character really is too much for me. I don’t know what makes this happen, but I’m finding I don’t like it so much.

Bouteille de 1 l, avec bouchon de céramique, partagée lors d’une dégustation Ratebeer Montréal chez Cathschlag. Arôme: Odeur de thé et de miel avec une pointe d’épices. Apparence: La couleur est blonde voilée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de pamplemousse avec une pointe de miel et d’épices. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est mince avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement citronné. (Rating #1662)

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2008 Second tasting, from the tap at Bir&Fud, Roma:
The body is nowhere as thin as the bottled version I had had and the flowers and pepper are a lot better expressed. This is clean, immensely drinkable, creative and well put together. Blend a Rosée d’Hibiscus with a Route des Épices and you’ll get something similar (but a tad heavier). 3.8/5

First tasting, from the bottle:
My Bottom Line:
Sweet pot-pourri notes and pointy pink grapefruit pith ride this slender and quizzical estival quencher.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-Chunks of yeast abound in the cloudy beige topped with a slim veil of foam.
-In the same "flowery, light, and quenching" category, I would much rather go for a Rosée d’Hibiscus.
-Is it the spice and flower blend, or is lactobacillus creeping up on this one?
-The citrusy fruitiness is dangerously close to that of a cleaning agent in its chemical leanings.
-Bubbles are big are take up a lot of room in the palate.

Bottle. 3.0/5

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2008
ah, i know i’ve had this before but i guess didn’t rate it the 1st time, this bottle comes from thecheeseman! thanks! Very floral aroma, perfumey, with some spice in the nose too. Pours a golden amber, now i’m down to the end of the 1L bottle and its extremely chunky! Funky spice as soon as it hits your mouth, some green olive, pepper, some funky tartness, with all the different flavors going on you can definitely taste the kent goldings, very interesting flavor! So good and easy to drink with the 3.8% abv. Great beer.
