3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

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.
