3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 I’d start thinking about shampoo. Instead, the malts stick to my lips, and there a nice edge of flower or watermelon on a beer that’s not delicate, but quite substantial.

On tap at AQ Bevolution’s 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.

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 it’s way to Japan part 100.

Tap at Grub. Another unpopular seasonal makes its way to Japan? Floral, caramel, fruity, light and sweet. It’s nice, but i imagine it might become a bit sickly. We’ll see. Actually wasn’t so bad, but still not so exciting.

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

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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. Doesn’t have the tinny metallic note that many flower-infused beers do.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Can. Nice dark brown. Has a distinct floral flavor. Nice refreshing ale. A sweet malty starts to come out after a couple drinks.

Pretty solid! Only slightly overhopped (as per normal American microbrew standards), and a truly interesting combination of sweet flower and tart other (orange peel apparently) flavors, much nicer than the Leffe Rose in fact. Gift from our Illinoisan friends, and a much welcome one

Light red /pink with 2 fingers of rapidly disapating head. Sweet cherry wheat aroma. Very light body and overall flavor. Hard to detect and pin anything. Some cherry maybe. Lots of carbonation.
