Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Draft at brewery. Pink and hazy. The beer is thin, has little complexity, and no compelling features except for the pleasant astringency. Nothing right or wrong, with soft drink character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at tap room. Reddish pink body. Lactose. Slightly tart. A touch of floral but altogether pretty subtle. Okay.

vadie (1183) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2015
Rose opaque brillante avec une petite robe blanche. Très florale avec d’hibiscus et un peu de levure belge et coriandre et un amertume léger florale. Sec, bien équilibre et facile à boire.

sulawang (913) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2015
Visual: (growler fill) Pours a pretty cloudy pink grapefruit pink with a small dissipating head, thin ringed retention, lots of lively activity. Nose: hibiscus, banana wheat malts. (lvl-4)-pungency Attack: crisp fizzy, clean fruity entry Mid-palate: (lvl-4)-sweetness, subdued low-med sourness throughout, (MAIN) hibiscus, light strawberry, banana wheat malt Finish: banana dry exhale, burpy, bready finish. Summary: An easy-drinking fruity witbier very similar to Dieu du Ciel’s Rosée d’Hibiscus (C+), but cleaner and better without the barnyard funk.

mcberko (12393) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2015
473mL growler, pours a bright opaque pinkish red with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of hibiscus, followed by faded citrus and wheaty notes. Flavour is very fruity, bringing out notes of hibiscus and raspberries upfront, followed by wheat in back. Very bright, refreshing and well-constructed. Very enjoyable wit.

GothGargoyle (2271) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2015
Pink and cloudy with a good pale head. Aroma is hibiscus, wheat, hint of banana, wet hay. Light bodied, lightly fruity on the palate, somewhat sweet finish. Interesting.

fiulijn (18057) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Draught at the brewery
Bright red color, cloudy, with compact head. Light wheat aroma and flavor; dry and weak mouthfeel; no spicy yeast character; it has just an impression from the hibiscus. Relatively ordinary bitterness. Short final. Boring.
