COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Rosée d’Hibiscus is a soft spoken wheat beer. The rose colour comes from the hibiscus flowers added during the brewing process. The aromas and flavour of this tropical flower are very prominent in the beer, giving it a slight acidity and a very agreeable fragrance. It is the perfect thirst quencher on a hot summer day.

July 1, 2012 5.9% abv, 341 mL bottle, BTL 04/12; lager glass Aromas of light fruit, wheat, and some muted floral notes. There is this weird earthy/musty thing going on as well. Overall, pretty muted. Pours a hazy wheat pink with some active carbonation evident. This is interesting looking. Decent white head, pretty foamy. Very light grassy hops come after some light wheat flavours (comparing to a wheat ale). Spices are evident, though I can’t distinguish what they are. Interesting. Active carbonation leaves a bitey finish. Very refreshing and dry. A little confused. This one is very refreshing, but the overall taste is pretty lacking. Spices mix well with the carbonation, though. Another go is likely necessary.

Really interesting beer! Pours a bright rose type color with a small white head thats gone like yesterday. Aroma is floral, sweet, some bubble gum with some bready yeastiness. Slight citrus as well. Taste is floral up front, somewhat like eating those edible flowers you get in fancy cocktails. This transfers quickly to sweet bubble gum and citrus that dances with wheat, a yeasty bready note, and finishes with some citrus and a tinge of tartness. Clean finish. Lighter body, nice carbonation. Definitely an interesting summer beer!

dfroms (205) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle shared at The Sampler. Pours a pretty pinkish color. Aroma is spicy wheat and light berry notes. Taste is overly effervescent, undistinctive wheat beer. Just so-so.

A very unique ale, with strong flower aroma, smooth flavor and tantalizing palate. Goes excellent for a night romance with a nice lady! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Beautiful rosy colour with very little head. Fruity, floral aroma. Flavour is sweet and floral, with a touch of tart grapefruit, a bit of an herbal note. Quite nice.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 28, 2014
hazy red grapefruit, lasting thin white head. Faint diacetyl nose, soapy with strawberry and dry earth. Softly floral front palate, berries and flaked wheat mid finishing with crystalline sugars in slightly sticky, fizzy end.

Bottle shared with northropfrye. Lovely blush colour, and pleasant, refreshing, floral aroma. Sweet, with a slight bite of acid. I quite like this beer for a warm summer afternoon!

Poured into a snifter at home. Reddish pink hue with almost no ring or head. Aroma is berries, flowers, and bread. Taste was similar. I think I may have had an old bottle as there seemed to be almost no hops or carbonation. Light body. Finish is mostly floral and fruity.
