12 oz. can, single from Lemon Tree. Even the first bit of beer in the glass has amber color with pinkish highlights. Foam fizzles away pretty quickly. Malted notes with just a bit of flower to it, perhaps some chamomile. Malts are pretty forward, with a side impression of rose petal, but again, not overly flowery. A good thing because then Iíd start thinking about shampoo. Instead, the malts stick to my lips, and there a nice edge of flower or watermelon on a beer thatís not delicate, but quite substantial.

Draught at Burgermania. Gentle flavor of cherry with floral notes, light but enjoyable, specially when wisely paired with a wonderful Cherry Burger.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear ruby amber with a thin white head. Soft floral musk on the nose. Medium bodied, lightly sweet, dries out into crisp floral notes, musk, hibiscus sweetness. Grainy wheat.

Pours a copper reddish color with white head. Aroma is hibiscus, citrus, and raspberries. Really nice fruity tart berry flavor with herbal hisbiscus and citrus finish. Very refreshing.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Pours a dark golden copper color with bright orange edges and a half finger white head that quickly settles. Decent retention with sporadic spots of soapy lacing left behind. Floral aroma with a nice balance of delicate grassy hops and a sweet malt backbone. Citrus doesnít really comes through but the floral/hibiscus notes stand out as the most prominent characteristic in the nose. Sweet and slightly tart but not sour or acidic with a stronger citrus zest presence than the nose suggests. This is countered by sweet malt and zesty spices. Slightly tart blood orange along with coriander, caramel sweetness, bread and biscuit. Not too complex but well balanced, refreshing and easy to drink.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3982) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 8, 2015
On tap at AQ Bevolutionís event at Qbrick.Half-pint. Rosa hibiscus is a reddish orange pour with a floral fruity nose. Light bodied and soda like - the taste reminds me of that pink cream soda I sometimes had as a kid. Sweet, floral, fruity and very dry.

willisread (1875) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 7, 2015
Can from Tanakaya. Light berry and floral aromas. Thin body, but not overly so. Some malt is there. Not sweet either, kind of dry and enjoyable, but still a little one dimensional. Unpopular seasonal makes itís way to Japan part 100.

shoulderbroken (3320) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 6, 2015
Tap at Grub. Another unpopular seasonal makes its way to Japan? Floral, caramel, fruity, light and sweet. Itís nice, but i imagine it might become a bit sickly. Weíll see. Actually wasnít so bad, but still not so exciting.

Ok somewhat bitter beer. Not objectionable but not so interesting. Worth a try. Mid mouthfeel.

maekchu (3202) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 24, 2015
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Light floral nose, with berries and tomato. Light strawberry pink color, small head, thin lace. Berries, tart cherry, and light citrus. Thin body. Nice enough, especially in warm weather. Doesnít have the tinny metallic note that many flower-infused beers do.

justsayswell (260) - Mission, Kansas, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Reddish Amber pour. Lots of floaties. Medium head that dissipates to leave decent lacing. Nose is rose, red wine, and honey. Light to medium mouthfeel. Taste is a mouthful of flower essence and honey, with a slap of herbal hops at the end. Not a fan.
