4.47/5 rDev +17.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A: It is a reddish tint of orange, with slight transparency...but mostly hazy. There is a thin sliver of white head.
S: It has a delicious vanilla scent. It smells very much like a wit beer. I get very light esters, and some hints of spice. It is excellent.
T: This has a very complex flavor to it. There are notes of vanilla, light orange citrus, some very light grain flavors, and some spice. I've had hibiscus before in beers and other drinks, and I don't taste it in this beer. I would give it a 5.0 if it weren't for the fact that the beer says "hibiscus" and doesn't taste like it.
M: The mouthfeel on this beer is great. It is light-to-medium bodied with perfect carbonation, and there is a kind of "tang" sensation that perks up the mouth. I could drink this all day.
O: Overall this is a great beer. I would give it solid 5's but the appearance is the only thing that really takes away from it. Also, because the beer says "hibiscus" I would have loved to taste it in the beer, but I don't. I would buy this again in a heartbeat and recommend it to others. It is a very great beer.

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.
