UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 Yellow body with white head. Nose had trace floral, spice and sweet. Taste was spices, complex and hard for me to nail down. Tasted like flowers? Weird, in a good way.

Courtesy of Brewfiend. Hazy gold color with a medium head. Strong citrus hop aroma. Very fruity taste, predominantly grape, grapefruit and tangerine. Quite unusual, but good.

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.

MartinT (7952) - 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

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2008
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%.

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

Sampled at the Carolina Crew tasting last month. Light yellow pour. Lightly sour and tart aroma. Tart and floral taste. Lots of flavor for such a low ABV.

33.8 oz bottle 4/24/09 (Discount Liquor-Milwaukee)-A darker hazy amber body with some floaties stuck in time. Aroma of floral with some citrus and yeast. Taste of everything listed with a little sourness. This light bodied brew is very intricate and different. Quite tasty and drinkable.
