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.

[bottle] Flowery, tart/sweet aroma. Pours a very clear, light pink color. Flavors are really nice- wheat provides a tart, mellow initial flavor. The Hibiscus comes across with some nice subtle fruit flavors. Lots of cherry, tamarin(?) and again, slighty tart acidity. Finishes a bit dry, and bitter. Very good, overall.

Bottled. Pours light red/pink with a nice foamy pinkisch head. Mild bitterness, aroma of hibiscus and something like the taste of rosehip jam. Almost didn’t feel like a beer. Nice experience, though.

Beertobealive (413) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 22, 2016
On tap at la caisse de Bieres. Pours a short head with ether aromas of raspberry. Hazy orange to red colored body. Fat in mouth with fruity length. The beer has not chosen its side between sweet thickness and ether lightness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bulk_Carrier (3347) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - APR 17, 2016
This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a dark pink almost hazy brown color with a quickly dissipating little white head. No lacing. The smell had the hibiscus running in nicely over top of the sweet bready/yeastiness. Spices run pretty low, but I’m okay with that. The taste was semi-sweet through the bready/yeastiness. Floral sweetness and bitterness from the hibiscus hits nice and balanced. Lingering sweet bitter to sweet floral aftertaste. Delicate sweet wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body. Nice sessionability about it. Carbonation runs really light. Slight stickiness from bready/yeastiness. Overall, really nice witbier done Dieu du Ciel. Kudos to them for taking an unpopular style and doing it well. I’d have this again!

Pours a golden color with fizzy head. Aromas of cheap perfume, flavor was cloying sweet.

Très fruitée. Une bonne bière d’été à prendre en terasse. Tout de même assez maltée.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy pink with a quickly fading off white bubbly head. Aroma is of berries, red grapes, grassy, floral, light malt, bread. Taste is of red fruits, wheat, hint of spice, perfumey, citrus. Light watery to oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation.

Draft at the brewery. Clear pink color. No head. Aromas of fresh red fruits and bakery malts. Taste is fruity. Like non sweetened fruit juice. Tart finish.

Beautiful pink colour, lovely fruit on the nose, flavourful and sour without being perfumy! One of my favourite summer beers.

On tap at St. Augustine’s. Pours a slightly hazy amber. Aroma and Taste are sour and sweet wirt spices, flowers and fruits notes, very complex, rich and pleasant. Very good!

Belle couleur rosée, belle mousse, notes acidulée, l’hibiscus tabasse les papilles. Bizarrement ça ne ressemble presque pas à une bière tant c’est spécial. Mais c’est pas mal, et c’est plutôt désaltérant. Bonne expérience.
