Interesting flower beer. Thank you Mr. Jim Daley for taking me on this incredible journey. Red, light bodied, wheat aromas, mixed with fleeting aroma and flavor of habiscus. More of a novelty than anything else but enjoyable none the less as all beers from Dieu du Ciel are.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 !

11.5 ounce bottle at home. Little white head on this unusual beer. Rose in color and looks very nice. Earthy fruit taste Smooth on the palate with a little bit of carbonation. Overall this is a very nice beer. The hibiscus makes a difference.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at DDC St-Jerome. I’ve seen this beer many times and with its pinking look, I knew at one point i’ll have to try it. It’s very attractive an different ot others. I felt a taste somewhere between a mixed floral and light small berries, with a nice well balanced acidity. Even with its pinky look, it might be considered a white beer. As such I compared it to the "Blanche du Paradis" and enjoyed the Rosée d’Hibiscus more. Maybe that may sound like a stereotype, if I’m going to DDC with a woman, I may recommend the Rosée highly to her. For a deeper fruity/berry taste, go with the Solstice d’été aux Framboises. You just have plenty of choices depending on your taste or the context of your visit.

Bottle. Pours reddish pink. Sweet floral aroma. Heavy sweet flavour which tastes overwhelmingly of hibiscus. I quite like hibiscus so I was fine with it. Pleasant drink.
