Brewhemia (209) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2016
Really nice looking. Although I guess its light amber in color it looks to have a pinkish glow. Aroma is complexly fruity (I think both apples, pears, grape, tangerine, lemon etc) and a slightly sharp tartness to it. Really nice aroma! The taste is lightly sweet, quite tart and has some bitterness as well. Nice taste as well though very sharply tart and had hoped for more of the fruitiness from the aroma.

McWorta (1530) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 17, 2016
Bright pink-grapefruit rosé colour, opal with a fine poring white head. Aromas of lime, pink grapefruit, unripe peach and melon, floral with some funky barnyard notes, horseblanket, hibiscus flowers at the back end with hints of wood and a faint whaff of roses. Fine perlage developping some tangy effervescence, mild texture, light-medium bodied. Brisk flowery sweetness up front with a well developped sourness offering a pleasant astrignency leading to some more bitterness. Somewhat tart finish yet bright.

Despite the cold images conjured by its name, Arctic Soiree is the perfect companion to a scorching day. While I generally hate it when someone says anything tastes "summery" it’s hard not to use that descriptor for this beer. The hibiscus gives this beer a pinkish tint. This Grassroots brew smells floral, citrusy, and lightly earthy. It transcends the flavor profile, too. The sweet hibiscus slightly offsets the barnyard and horse blanket notes from the Brett. Likewise, the lime juice lifts the taste to keep it from being too heavy or bready and blends with this beer’s natural sourness. A medium-dry finish; very refreshing. I haven’t had any losers from Grassroots. Arctic Soiree keeps a good thing going.

Bottle. A- Hibiscus, lime juice, subtle strawberry, subtle funk. A- Orangish pink color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Brett, funky, subtle citric bitterness, horse blanket, manure, straw. P- Medium body, average texture, medium carbonation, funky finish. O- Too damn much Brett. That ruins a good beer. Smells nice and then the flavor is nothing but funky shit.

furthur (920) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Finally tagging this one, bottle, hazy, pinkish amber, white head disappeared. Aroma is lemon, lime, hibiscus. Taste is lemon, black pepper, peach, melon, oak. Palate is light, carbonation average, very soft. This has a sweetish center that balances the acid nicely.

onceblind (7494) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Hazy rosey copper under a thin foamy off white head. The nose has a nice rosey and hibiscus note, kefir lime, and a funky bretty barn tone to end it. Smooth and farm-y bretty flavor with a bit of hibiscus, hay, kefir lime, and a dry bretty finish.

Nice pinkish cast from hibiscus . Aroma is fruit, slight citrus and faint perfume. Flavor’s like nose plus a bit of lime in the finish.
