With the hot summer months and fun gatherings in mind, James brewed a refreshing wheat beer with an exotic kick. This beer is smooth and light bodied with the delicate flavors of hibiscus.

Yellow with a pretty thin head. Sl floral / perfume nose. Pretty sweet on the palate like a macro lager. Could really have used as bit more bitterness.

demitriustown (1108) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 13, 2014
12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice wheat nose, bread, slightly grainy. I donít know what Hibiscus flower smell like, but it does have a slight floral aroma. Appearance is a cloudy orange pour with a medium white head that diminishes quickly Taste is grainy wheat, and actually quite interesting. I donít really know how to explain it. Just that itís quite good. Palate is medium to low carbonation in the mouth and a lingering wheat aftertaste. Overall, Quite nice. Cheers!

"Hmmm. interesting and refreshing. Light fruityness, slightly herbal, a touch of sweet and juuust a splash of tartness. For a lawnmower type beer, pretty nice. Iíd try again."

It poured a lightly hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of hibiscus and floral notes with a touch of wheat malt. The taste was similar and a little dry. It had a light body with crisp carbonation. Nice.

12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 41į. Color is a deep gold with a slight haze And good carbonation that gives it a small soft head. Aroma of honey and a bit of fruity hops. It has a lighter medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor is wheat that comes across sweet with a hint of white pepper, a light fruit note and the hibiscus showing on the end. In the after taste the sweet lingers giving it a honey taste. Overall its a nice, easy drinking brew with a unique flavor palate.

bergstaden (1510) - RÝros, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2013
Hazy dark golden with a white head - Wheat and malt aroma - Thin malt body that is a little sweet - short thin malt finish - Did not care for this, to thin and sweet

Pale hazy yellow color with a large yet fizzy head and decent lacing. Pale malts, wheat and floral hops and flowers permeate the nose. Wheat, pale malts, grassiness, and some flowery sweetness which I assume is hibiscus. Aftertaste is a earthy grassy flavor that sticks around for a long time. Body is moderate with some moderate carbonation. Good idea but lacks flavor.

Average beer with a little twist. Faint wheat and grassy smell. Cloudy yellow color with a white head. Lighter weight palate with average carbonation. A little foamy. Tastes were of wheat and grains. Iím not sure what hibiscus tastes like so I guess the slightly unique flavor could be associated with that. Easy to drink but not very exciting.
