2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
