2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The most successful of this series of flower beers, with hibiscus. Dirty pinkish, thin head, dark, bright red colour. Sweet aroma of exotic fruits, strawberry jam, grenadine, lemon juice, flowers, apple sauce, sour cream and a lot of DMS (red cabbage). Stronger carbonation than the others in this series, artificial, sugary sweetness that cloys into the finish, rosewater, mildly floral hops in the finish. I like the others better.

Bottle. Hazy red amber, low white head. Perfumed soapy nose. Sweet tropical fruit start, berries, flowery notes.
Medium bidy, sparkly, slightly sticky.
Perfumed and strawberrylike aftertaste. Bit too sweet for my taste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Well lucky me, I found another one of these flower-themed beers! And as if sensing my dismay, it gushed all over my kitchen counter. Orange cloudy appearance. Similar slight caramel-floral- nose and sweet body as the rose- version. However, this is a lot better than that overly-icky sweet drink. The sweetness isn’t that bad, actually quite ok for a dessert beer of some sorts. But I don’t think that’s by design. I was probably just lucky to get a bottle with some unintended microbes that’s been feasting on it (hence the gushing).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. BBF 02/08/2014. Bright amber orange, radiant fox red, quickly fizzing away off-white head. Smell is sweet malts, sticky syrup nose, very sweet & sticky, sugary with some hibiscus, thick strawberry jam & thick candy sugar, too sweet. Taste is sweet candy sugar, caramel malts, liquorish, strawberry jam, sweet white sugar, sweet pepper, berries, sweet leaves,… Sticky & high carb. Ugh, why would you, use a sickengly sweet 9 % ABV BSDA to showcase a flower? Wouldn’t something light, blond with brett be so much nicer? This is a bit more enjoyable than the Rose one.
