Notes/Commercial Description:
Here's what I've been goofin' around with for a while. I love Belgian wits on hot summer days (or freezin' your butt off days). Anyway I took a witbier and threw in a bunch of hibiscus flowers in it and made the stuff even better.

Tap at The Bridge in St. Louis.

A - Poured a cloudy, straw yellow color with a small, fizzy, white head. It receded quickly and left little to no lacing.

S - It smelled of wheat, lemon and floral notes.

T - I got a lot of lemon flavor with some mild wheat and clove taste. There was a floral taste from the hibiscus.

M - It was crisp, sharp and had a fizzy bite. A light bodied ale that had a dry finish.

D - This is a nice wit. The hibiscus makes it interesting.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served on-tap at Bailey's Range in St. Louis, MO, in a tulip. The body is a solid, hazy, color that I can only call a blend of yellow and pink. Unusual. Small, white head at the top of the glass, that leaves just a bit of lacing.

Light aroma, mostly floral notes. A bit of citrus, predominantly lemon, comes through as well.

Very interesting flavor. The hibiscus definitely shows up with floral flavors and meshes rather well with the normal witbier flavors, especially the lemon. Overall, it is sweeter than most wits I've had.

Light to medium mouthfeel that is very drinkable. I could see this being a regular for me, especially in the summer. Interesting combination, but well done.
