341ml bottle poured in a Duvel tulip glass.
A: Magnificent bottle art. Dieu du Ciel! trademark. The beer itself is also such a beauty. It pours something in between orange an pink color forming a medium to big bubbled and fluffy white head. A bit cloudy. Good retention and only few to no lacings left in the glass. A thin layer remains from beginning til the end
S: Very flowery as expected. Spicy too. Reminds a Belgian Witbier with strong notes of flowers in it. Quite good and complex. Some notes of fruits (mainly cherries) and sweet grains as well
T: Light sweet grains upfront. Strong notes of wheat. Some notes of sweet malts. Flower and spicy taste, I would dare to say some coriander and orange zest are present too. Again, reminds me Belgian Witbier spiced with flowers. A light hibiscus acidity in the mouth but not overwhelming but pleasant. Very mild bitterness, very light hops profile. Yeasts have Belgian Wit profile
M: Light body. Medium carbonation and a flowery aftertaste with notes of wheat and spices
O: Great drinkability. Another Dieu du Ciel! masterpiece. Very unique beer

Rosee D'hibiscus is an intriguing spiced witbier that, while looking fairly unimpressive, has a pleasant aroma and taste that are reminiscent of a good herbal tea. This was a beer that I could actually drink during the daytime and feel appropriate in doing so. This all being said, I'd probably make my own tea with these flavors rather than purchase a $5 11oz bottle with no bottled-on date.
Pours a 0.5cm tall head of whitish to extremely faint pink foam, which quickly fades (in under thirty seconds) to a thin ring around the perimeter of the glass and a small island of residual lacy foam atop the center of the body of the beer. Lacing is minimal, just a few dots cling to the sides of the glass. The body is a dark reddish brown color, with light bringing out bright brown hues with a minor red tint. Carbonation is moderate, but very active, rising from the center of the glass and visible through the slightly hazy (10% opacity) body.
Aroma is pleasant, tartly floral, of wheat malt, hibiscus flowers (as in tea), light champagne, slightly tart raspberries, some notes of citrus rind.
Flavors are dry tartness, with obvious hibiscus and wheat malt usage, less obvious and unknown sources of raspberries, lemongrass, and ginger. Front of palate experiences some slight berry-like tartness, hibiscus, lemongrass, and dry wheat malt. Mid-palate of increased tartness, hibiscus, coriander, lemongrass, mild raspberry, and ginger: somewhat reminiscent of herbal tea with a heavier body. Back of palate detects tart hibiscus, faint raspberry, ginger, and lemongrass, with slightly smooth, dry wheat malt. Aftertaste is of dry wheat grains with low residual tartness, faint flavors of hibiscus, ginger, raspberry, and lemongrass.
Beer is medium-light to light in body, with carbonation of medium intensity, leading to a slightly fizzy mouthfeel that eventually calms to a light foaminess (2/5) and general smoothness (3/5). Could use a bit more consistent carbonation without the fizziness. Closes dry, with very light stickiness on the palate.
