3.8/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A really unusual color, kool-aid orange when held up to the light, a much deeper red otherwise, a finger of pale peach head resting at the top.

A bit of a funky farmhouse scent to it, straw and hay and a bit of floral citrus.

Heavy floral notes and a vague underlying citrus.

Very nice mouthfeel, well balanced with a slightly citrus aftertaste.

Eassy enough to drink, but the heavy floral notes make this a 'one beer' session.

Into the Lindeman's flute glass. Really am excited about this beer being released.

A - Pink tint to the body, with normal head.

S - Smells like most wit style beers.Tart, citrus like aromas dominate, with come grape like flavors underneath. Did not pick up much in the way of flower in the aroma. Some slight funk noted as well.

T - A lot sweeter in the mouth than exected. Grape like flavor seems to dominate, with a soft, sweet flavor that reminds me of rose water. It starts out soft, but really expresses itself more in the finish. Good hop kick, coriander, and a nice, mild Belgian funk round out this beer.

M - Quite crisp, with a slightly thicker body than one usually finds in this style.

D - I was really quite happy with this beer. Well made beer, with a slightly more interesting combination of spices than most wits. Recomended

12 oz. screw-top poured into my Deschutes snifter, the Rosee D'hibiscus is a slightly hazy dark pink with small, tight, off-white head that leaves barely any lace.

Smell is heavy on the flowers, a distinct cherry/rose aroma that borders on being a bit thick.

Taste is, wow, from the very first sip, quite nice! I hate to say, I was expecting some kind of overly spicy, floral wit, and while this is still kind of a chick beer, it's really a nicely done spiced wit, and would pair well with a wide range of foods. I'm stocking up on more this summer (lamb bbq, etc...), in spite of the $4.50/bottle price tag.

Mouthfeel starts out very creamy and dry, with a lighter body, but dosen't finish as nice, feeling still and thicker, in spite of the pervasive head.

Drinkability is pretty good, one of the better new DDC beers to hit town, I'll grab a few more while I can, but it might be too spicy to be a big hit.

Pours a cloudy orange amber, possibly with a rosy tint.

Big floral aroma, also a touch of wheaty goodness.

Flavor has a bit of tart acidity and spice/floral notes. Wheat flavor like a typical Witbier. Towards the end of the glass, the carbonation loses steam.

It's pretty easy drinking, worth a try if you like unconventional Wits.

This is my first encounter with Brasserie Dieu du Ciel, as their beers just arrived in the Oregon market this week. Poured form the 11.5 oz (really, 11.5oz? WTF?) into a pint glass. A small, pinky-sized white head quickly subsides into a thin ring, resting on atop a cloudy body that's a growing reddish hue. The aroma is dominated by a strong hibiscus floral character, backed up by crisp wheat character and a hint of tangy yeast.
Palate is again heavy on the floral character up front, with some light floral hops and crisp light malt and wheat. A mildly sweet fruity character comes through before the nice, dry finish. Body is crisp and not too thin, just right for the flavors involved here. An incredibly refreshing beer for a warm spring night, I'm glad I picked one of these up as soon as it came out.

This beer poured a cloudy amber color and formed an off white foamy head that coated the glass with lace as it subsided. An aroma of wheat, yeast, spices and flowers. The flavor was of wheat, spices and hint of yeast. The body is medium light and the finish is slightly sprite. A rather nice beer that seems like a more hyped up wheat beer than a spice beer like some Christmas beers.

3.88/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours rose/pink with about an half finger head that fades pretty quickly. A little bit of lacing but not much.

S - Initial smell is wheat with some berry and floral notes.

T - Pretty similar to the smell. Very wheaty with cherry and berry flavors as well as flowers. The fruit flavors aren't as strong in the taste as they are in the smell but the floral qualities are a bit more present. A little bit of hop bitterness in the aftertaste but not much.

M - A little thin and a bit overcarbonated but for the style this is pretty good.

D - Very refreshing and drinkable. This would be a perfect summer session beer, if it were a little easier to find and not so expensive.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this beer, but I wasn't disappointed. I would buy it if you have the chance.

3.83/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a light cloudy pink color with a head that quickly rises and falls. Tons of tiny bubbles and a few reddish pink floaters. No lacing noted.

S: Nice light floral aromas with hints of yeast and tropical fruits. Tons of wheat. There is little doubt that this is a kicked up wheat beer.

T: The wheat character really comes thru. This is a well crafted wheat brew. In the middle the other flavors start to make an appearence. Hints of flower water with acidic tropical notes.

M: Light in body fairly crisp.

D: Very drinkable.

Overall: I enjoyed this one. Nice wheat flavors with a splash of acidic fruit. Very crisp and refreshing. Have another held back for a hot Florida afternoon.

3.93/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured a semi-opaque reddish pink with about half a finger of head into a pint. The head dissipates within about a minute and there is absolutely no lacing.

S: Yeast is present with a hint of tropical fruitiness, a little disappointing. I expected something more herbal considering its brewed with hibiscus.

T: Acidic initial fruityness, reminiscent of cranberry/green apple with some pretty strong herbal notes that did not show up in the aroma. The taste quickly fades away leaving a very light refreshing feel.

M: Feels very light in mouth and the carbonation helps in bringing forth the acidity for a quenching finish. Pleasantly refreshing, definately a warm day type of beer.

D: Quite enjoyable as the alcohol is totally hidden. I could definately have more than one.

Overall, it has the qualities that I look for in a good witbier: quenching, no after taste, a very good spring/summer beer. So refreshing that it makes me want to sit outside on this nice spring day and sip it while I watch the last bits of snow melt.

341 ml bottle.

A- Light orange and pink, a very nice summery colour. Not much head. Nice effervescence.

S- Witbier base with a very fragrant fruity and flowery aroma.

T- Base is a light witbier with faint wheat and yeast. Slightly sour middle. Flowery aroma floats over the rest. Berries in their as well. Not great, but no off flavours either. Could use a bit more malt and wheat.

MF- Light bodied. Leaves a good natural feeling to the mouth. Refreshing.

D- Easy to drink. Good as a warm weather beer to quench your thirst. Grew on me as drank it and I could have had more.

12oz bottle purchased from Super Marche Rahman in Montreal. Pours a cloudy pink-brown. Smells like strawberries. Flavour is light and fruity - again with the strawberries. Has some qualities similar to a light witbier. Mouthfeel is thin. I don't understand why DDC would choose to bottle this one.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours medium red with a pink/yelllow highlights, of white (pink) dissipates and laces nicely.

Aroma of soft pepper and fresh spice. Wheat, and contiental malt shine but a light off setting perfumy flavor seems to be shadowing. Hibiscus flowers are used in the brewing, my guess is it must contribute to the apperance and aroma, maybe its that off-flavor I taste. Still, a very unique and pleasant offering.

Bottle date 10/07

Pours ruby red with pinish hues in the body.
A one-inch head of light pink rose up slowly, along with some minute orbs of carbonation up the hips of the glass.
Aromatics are fruity and zesty, with plenty of phenols.
Strawberries, rose petals, coriander, cherries, and oranges all in harmony. Quite floral and earthy.
The mouthfeel is light and crisp. Fairly lively and very refreshing.
The pallet has ripe stone fruits riding atop a solid witbier base.
Slightly tart and drying, with juicy, ripe overtones.
Strawberries, cherries, and citrus zest all are within, but not overbearing.
Bitterness is balancing and the beer finishes quite quick with faint wave of sweetness.
Alcohol is nill and that makes the beer that much more drinkable and refreshing.

Not to compare, but reminiscent of New Belgium's Pomegranite wit, and more floral.

Bière en bouteille.

La Rosée d'Hibiscus, versée dans une flute de Blanche de Chambly, est d'une rose orangé très opaque. Une faible mousse éphémère agrémente le verre.

Odeur très fruité (cerises) et floral (hibiscus j'imagine!). On sent que la boisson devrait être sucrée à souhait.

Toutefois, en bouche, le goût se révèle beaucoup plus subtil que les odeurs ne nous le laissait croire. La Rosée d'Hibiscus est agréable, mais peu être un peu trop équilibrée. Cerises, fleurs, une faible touche sucrée, une légère amertume... J'aurais apprécié dans ce savant mélange de goût que certains arômes viennent occuper une plus grande place. Néanmoins, elle demeure une excellente bière.

341 ml brown bottle.

Bright pink beer with a thin white head.

Aroma is of sour fruit with floral notes.

Sour cherries are the dominant flavour in this beer, with some citrus and a faint, lingering hop bitterness. I'm also getting some hints of tropical fruit, mainly pineapple. Light-bodied with fairly high carbonation.

Tart and refreshing and quite unusual.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy deep pink color ale with a big foamy head with some average retention. Aroma of hibiscus is dominating and quite enjoyable and different. Taste is also dominated by the hibiscus with a ton of wheat malt and some spices which may originate from the yeast strain or maybe some orange peel/coriander mix. Body is full with some good carbonation. Interesting experience and definitely something I would buy again.

belle couleur rosée comme son nom, petit goût aigre parfait, équilibre incroyable, très rafraichissante, facile à boire mais combien gouteuse, les fleurs d'hibiscus donne une belle couleur et un goût hors pair, qui se marrie bien avec une bière blanche, cette bière serait moins bonne si elle n'aurait pas été de blé à la base, le marriage est parfait.

j'adore cet audace hors du comme..

Pinkish reddish beer with no head retention at all.
Smell of hibiscus, shy wheat, spices, bananas and florals flavours with a shy hoppish bitterness.

Taste is wheaty at first followed by a shy malty caramel flavour then followed by a sweet floral smooth taste that let some shy flavours out such as hops, spices and fruit, but everything is pretty smooth like a soft juice.

It's pink, an orange pink colour with a finger of foamy pink head. Pinkest beer I've had. Some lacing as the beer goes down.

The aroma is flowery and tart, and has a bit of citrus. I'm not sure what hibiscus smells like, but I assume that it makes up for the bulk of the aroma, as it doesn't remind me of any other beer I've smelled.

Sour and tart flavoured, reminds me of juice crystals that need to have sugar added. Slight citrus to the finish. Nice, unique.

Though it is light bodied, it seems to coat the mouth. Carbonation is sturdy but not overdone.

Quite nice, and certainly different. Not something I'd have frequently but certainly glad to try it. My thanks go to my friend Jay for bringing a bottle back on his recent trip to Montreal.

A beautiful red with pinkish foam, like a bstrawberry milkshake. Aroma of sweet and sour herbs. Creamy mouthfeel with a sour edge. Bold taste. Sourish finish. Suitable carbonation. I like sour rosehip tea once in a while, but this was a unique spot-on brew.
