I love this beer! Floral aroma, great appearance, citrusy taste, and a slight alcohol burn. What more could you ask for on a hot summer day!?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle (650ml)] Pours a hazy bubbly copper-gold with a large semi-lasting foamy white head and some lacing. Aroma is sweet, fruity, floral and lightly hoppy along with some yeast and yes, rose hips. Nice flavour is lightly sugary sweet and yeasty along with some honey, light hops, fruit and a long tea-like bitter finish. Some alcohol but for the most part well hidden. Medium bodied. Pretty good beer.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow body with a rather small white head. Aroma of spicy belgian yeast, apples, oranges and flowers. Taste is bittersweet, fruity hops, light peppery, herbs. Thick sweet fruity finish with bread and banana. Nice hoppy belgian.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Medium golden, not a lot of head generation. Lovely floral aroma, rosewater, cut flowers, sweet yeast. The palate fails to deliver on the aromatics, sweet candyish pale malts, doughy yeast, with a boozy finish that is coarse and edging toward hot. Not bad in smaller doses, but I struggled to finish even my half-bottle.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thank you Colin! Nice golden yellow with an intriguing haze. Lovely effervescent fruity aroma strong citrus, floral, wild berry - lovely stuff. Taste - medium soft and carbonated body. Quite sweet, some berry, and lots and lots of alcohol. Almost a bit cloying. Lots going on but does not deliver on promise of the aroma - I think the nuances of the rosehips are better served a few points lower in alcohol percentage. Damn enjoyable though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served cold in a tulip glass as per instructions on the bottle. Bright light yellow body with some thin soapy head, not much retention or lacing and quite a bit of sediment. Citrus and kind of a diapery yeast, raw dough, slightly rotting strawberries, but I mean all this in a good way. I liked the aroma. Taste is semi-bitter, and a touch of tripel-esque spritziness, but not a bit too subdued. Abv well masked. Overall, an okay beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I put this on as a wheat Ale though it has malts. It really did not fit any of the catagories offered by RateBeer. Light in color with a nice head, lots of cirus and sweetness, and dangerously smooth for such a big beer.

Not really that impressed, nice but not that distinctive from a pale ale. some subtile notes and drinkable.
