11.5oz bottle poured into Christoffel glass.
The pour reveals a light cascade of cloudiness. Though somewhat amber-like in appearance, a rosy haze permeates throughout, giving an overall blood orange visual. The nose is genuinely inviting, the hibiscus aromas asserting themselves just enough to be pleasing to the nostrils. But once the liquid hits the tongue it is clear that these initial bits of hope are ordained to remain in the realm of what could have been. The taste recalls a weak wit, with those hibiscus traces trying to assert themselves once again. Alas, the flowers only serve to give the beer a sort of whispy grapefruit quality, resulting in a weakly citrus take on Hoegaarden. This weakness is exacerbated by the weak, slightly overcarbonated body that effervesces on the tongue in a mildly annoying manner. Something akin to a light, citrusy ginger ale comes to mind, and to tongue. This is also how drinkable this beer is: good enough to allow it to be drunk, but not good enough to elicit too heavy a desire to consistently imbibe it. All-in-all, a so-so offering, but one with a good deal of promise.

12oz bottle in Duvel tulip
bottled on 2/14
purchased at La Duchesse in Quebec City
A: A shocking pink color with a very thin white head with touches of pink, lots of pink here :)
S: A hint of fruit (cherries?) and some spices, there might be more, but I have been fighting a head cold
T: Cherries and flowers with a light spice in the background, my first thought was a fruited saison, but there is a distinct wheat breadiness that doesn't quite go with a saison. The subtle spicing is a nice touch, not at all overdone, complements everything else nicely.
M: Round and yet crisp at the same time. I think the malts are providing the roundness and the high level of carbonation helps it feel crisp.
O: I like but don't love this beer. I think it is more me and the style vs. the quality of the beer. In fact I think this is a very well made beer and is probably a homerun for the style. I could easily drink a couple of these on a hot summer day. Nicely done and worth trying.
