3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[bottle] Flowery, tart/sweet aroma. Pours a very clear, light pink color. Flavors are really nice- wheat provides a tart, mellow initial flavor. The Hibiscus comes across with some nice subtle fruit flavors. Lots of cherry, tamarin(?) and again, slighty tart acidity. Finishes a bit dry, and bitter. Very good, overall.

Bottle poured into a snifter showing hazy orange tinged red with spare white foam.
The nose shows strong round rose forwardness with notes of watermelon.
The palate is medium bodied and well carbonated. Seemingly sweet but completely dry with flavors of rose petals and jam throughout. Finish is more clean rose and hibiscus. Clean and refreshing.

Not my favourite from DDC. Spices doesn’t give it enough distinction. Something missing.

From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours rosee, with a nice fluffy foam, white and relatively fine. Aroma is pleasant and sweet, presumably from the hibiscus flowers, smelling almost like cake. Body is light, no carbonation, but surprisingly creamy and velvety. Taste is tendentially sweet, with very subtle bitterness and just a hint of acidity in the final which generates also a bit of astringency. Finish, however, is rather short and dry.

A small taste from my sister (tap) @ Bar Dom. Pours slightly cloudy ruby red with a low off-white head. Aroma is malts with berries and hibiscus. Like a jam. Flavor is crisp malts with some hibiscus and wheat. Pretty good.

Bottiglia da 341 ml. Birra dal colore rosato con poca schiuma bianca con lievi riflessi rosa, la sua durata però è molto breve. Al naso lievi sentori di frutti di bosco e caramelle gommose. Al palato molto fresca con un inizio fruttato (lamponi e fragole) e un finale amarognolo, poco gasata ma dissetante e beverina anche grazie alla sua freschezza.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Although the colour looks quite nice, it has a very thin white head that disappears completely after a couple minutes. Smells floral, with notes of red fruits, lambrusco wine, and caramel. The taste is sweet and sour, quite nice. However it’s too flat after 5 minutes, too light bodied and the finish is a bit weird.

Bue 8 mois avant DLC aux petites écuries. Biere ambrée, rouge. Arôme tranchant de fraise et pointe de rose. Sucrée et legere. Une pointe de grenadine en final. Tres agréable et sans sucre ajouté. Belle découverte !
