3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange hue with light off white head. Spiced aroma, light wheaty hints. Body is smooth and full. Light carbonation. Spiced flavour that I find a little hard at the moment. I do not find the hibiscus dominate in the flavour at all.

I cannot believe that I found this @ Ralph’s Bar at Place Lux in Brussels. Been here a couple of times and only drank half litters of Carlsberg because this is really not the place where you would expect to find something like this – didn’t even bother checking the menu before now. Borderline, cub-like atmosphere, loud jarring music, people getting drunk after work, swigging half-litters of Carlsberg, huge posters advertising said beer, lots of people out on the street, Champagne bottles popping, drunk people dancing on the tables etc. you get the picture. Their menu has a beers of the world selection which does have a few duds like USA is represented by Budweiser but also Sam Adams. Mexico by Corona – just leave out Mexico maybe? Germany by Bittburger but also more interesting Vitus. The rest of the countries is totally of the map & unexpected, Denmark is represented by Mikkeller, Netherlands by Emelisse & De Molen, Scotland by Brewdog,… really impressive & hard to believe esp. since some of the beers on the menu I had never seen before in Belgium like this beer representing Canada. Which was also sold at the same price as Budweiser, namely 4.5 euro which seems like an exceptional price for this one. Congratulations to whoever made this beerlist.
Looks like BBF 2007. 5.9 % ABV. 341 ml. bottle @ office goodbye drink. Incredibly cellared. No idea at all how Hibiscus taste like but everyone else seemed to have a clear idea. A ex-colleague picked up immediately grapefruit as far as the nose went. Everyone described it as a grapefruit beer & noted hibiscus. Pours a lightly pinkish grapefruit, little off-white head. Pure grapefruit, wonderfully fruity, roses, strawberries & citrus fruits, light floral bitterness & hops, light acidity, agreeably tar, very fruity wheat, light spices, great carb. Crazily drinkable, it was probably the situation etc. but this blew my mind. Astonishing.

Well I knew going into this beer it was going to be completely different to any other beers I drink. Was more curiosity. It was bit better then I thought it might be, but not my style of beer to drink normally.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Rosenröd grumlig vätska utan nämnvärt skum. Syrlig, jordig doft med inslag av bär. Syrlig och sträv smak. Lång eftersmak.

Flaska från Systembolaget Nordstan i Göteborg. Skrev upp betyget men kom inte i håg någonting annat. Sannolikt anonym:)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy reddish orange, with a white head.
Spicy, floral aroma, citrus, blood orange, coriander seeds, raspeberries, wild strawberries.
Off-dry, light to medium bodied, low bitterness, balanced CO2.
Spicy, fruity taste, citrus, coriander, raspberries, wheat, yeast, faintly phenolic.
Refreshing, but as with too many flavoured wheats I pick up an artificial note. Maybe that’s just me. (2013-04-28)

(Bottle). Sweet scent of caramel, toffee, flowers and perfume. The flavor has a slight note of caramel but it is mainly tangy and vinous. Not bad but nothing I drink again. But I like the color!

Almost ruby red in color. Not allt of aroma. Sour taste yet sweet. Very different taste.
