[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.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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!

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

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

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.
