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.

Gorgeous pink color. Strong floral notes balance well with the wheat flavor. Incredibly drinkable. Perfect beer for a hot summer day.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1950) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2014
On tap at DDC. A glowing reddish amber pour. Massive fruit and coriander aroma - very spicy, a bit over the top. Very smooth bodied with a round mouthfeel. The taste is coriander, celery salt, peppery - just tons of spice.

stantheman (647) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
On tap at Tangent Cafe on The Drive in Vancouver. A raspberry coloured beer with generous pink head. A delicately fruity, possibly floral summer ale that would never be mistaken for a fruit cooler. Nice. 3.8.

chinchill (1799) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
11.5 oz bottle at 5.5% ABV. Lovely clear amber-red body with an average head; some sediment left on the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is quite floral and a bit fruity. Good sweet/tart balance in the flavor where hibiscus is also obvious but not overdone.

A very interesting beer, not our style however. Pours a bright, bright red with almost no head. Smells and tastes like hibiscus soda, rather then beer. Definitely a lambic. Had in the bottle at Rockbottom Brewpub.

Bière orangée tirant sur le rose, bien voilée, effervescence moyenne, col constitué d’un simple film blanc à la surface du liquide. Arômes de pain frais et blé, avec quelques effluves acides et fruités rappelant quelque peu la canneberge, peut-être aussi la framboise. On perçoit également quelque chose de plus floral en arrière-plan, probablement l’hibiscus, mais c’est très subtil, et, franchement c’est décevant, je m’attendais à un nez beaucoup plus intense et parfumé. Nez correctement agréable, mais de faible complexité et beaucoup trop timide. En bouche, pétillement moyen-fort sur la langue, onctuosité moyenne au palais, c’est légèrement velouté. Au goût, un peu de pain frais et de blé, levure à pain, acidité dominante, canneberge (vraiment, à l’aveugle j’aurais dit qu’il s’agit d’une bière aux canneberges…), des épices se pointent le nez en fin de bouche (coriandre, menthe, poivre…), et un certain sucré qui fait un peu sucre d’orge est présent comme en trame de fond. Aucune amertume. Bel équilibre entre les saveurs maltées/sucrées et les saveurs acides/épicées, belle intégration des différentes saveurs entre elles. Heureusement plus complexe et intense en bouche qu’au nez, mais ça reste plutôt moyen sur ces deux aspects. Je ne saisis pas vraiment l’apport de l’hibiscus à la bière, je m’attendais véritablement à un produit beaucoup plus floral et parfumé. Bière correcte, sans plus…

Tap at bar volo. Pours a reddy plum with a white head. Light candy, floral, cherry aroma. Light body, a touch thin, medium carbonation. Light cherry, light cranberry, white wine... OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jeremyh70 (693) - Missouri, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours a rosey copper color with a small pink head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is floral with a malt sweetness and some avidity. Taste is similar with hibiscus flowers, malt sweetness, wheat and a mild tartness. Finishes with some sweetness and hint of tartness. Medium bodied and low carbonation. Decent flavor but I’m not a big fan of hibiscus in beer. Easy to drink but not really for me.

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!
