Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue X:
"Pinkish Hibiscus" is brewed with hibiscus flowers, which are added during the brewing process to lend their unique character. Interesting.
Pours a cloudy (unfiltered), peach- and rose-colored beer with a pink-tinted lace. Sweet and floral in the nose (lilac), with some citrus zest in the back and a dusting of malt. Very aromatic and pleasing. Bitty and crisp on the palate, with a light and semi-fluffy body. Very zesty, near puckering up front with a shot of lemon and bitter orange. Watery cherry and grass. Faint and powdery suggestions of savory spices way in the back. Wheat and husk beneath and toward the end. Finish is bone dry and clean.
A very refreshing twist on wheat ales. To hell with lemons! We'll take our wheat with hibiscus any day.

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.
