1.9/5  rDev -50%
look: 4 | smell: 1 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 1

11.2 oz bottle poured into Moinette chalice.

A: Pours a very interesting thin rose color, similar to a red zin and - beerwise - Dogfish Black & Blue. Attractive looking brew.

S: Jesus! I don't think I've ever put my nose up to a brew and felt as if I were going to keel over before - until just now. I guess hibiscus is there, but it smells more like infection than anything else. I'm scared to touch this to my lips.

T: Taste is a bit less offensive than the smell, but not by much. Super tart, but not in a mmm mmm tasty Cantillon way. Indecipherable spices and bitter tea. The finish is the only thing that saves this slightly, but it isn't nearly enough to make me want more.

M: Mouthfeel is actually quite decent. As expected, it's pretty thin, but the carbonation is nice and feels like a lambic.

D: Piss poor. After finishing this, I'm left with the question of why this well-respected brewery would ever bottle this. Did they try it?

I hope not.

to me, these guys can do no wrong, so it comes as no surprise that their hibiscus beer is fantastic. its light and tart and clean, different from the perfume forward intensity of others, and with the exception of io from jolly pumpkin, this is one of the best hibiscus beers around. a nose of soft flower petals, mineral water, and vibrant spicy ale yeast thats not quite belgian. the flavor is the same, with all the hibiscus and most of the spice coming on the back end. lots of pale malt up front, biscuity but light, clean, and delicate. carbonation is prickly and its just right for this beer. body is short of medium, and this is a total summer refresher, as the additives are subtle and so the whole profile is akin to a hot weather drink, rose water or limeade or something. overall a real well done brew, but they all are from dieu ciel.

Orange red in color. Not quite rose but still a very pretty beer. Very little head despite a good level of carbonation. Slightly cloudy.

Aroma is fruity and herbal. Not a whole lot else, not overwhelming.

Little spice, floral, medium body. Slight acidity and a bit medicinal in the finish.

Light to medium body.

Overall an interesting beer. The spices are nice but a little harsh in the aftertaste. A good sipper.
