Looks like champagne rosé. The spices and floral flavour of the hibiscus brings a good balance to the wheat. Clean but complex. A refreshing brew from the best brewery in Canada

341ml bottle poured into tulip.

Pours pinkish amber with one finger of light pink head that leaves sudsy rings of lace as it recedes.

Smells of flowers, mixed underripe berries, mild lemon and grapefruit and light honeyed biscuit malt.

Tastes of more tart berries, hibiscus preserve, tart citrus, spiced pie crust and raspberry jam.

Feels light and fluffy. Medium bodied with gently frothy carbonation. Finishes off-dry.

Verdict: Highly recommended. Great summer drink.

16oz. pint served in a tulip glass at STIR in Mississauga.

Appearance - Poured a hazy pink colored beer with leaning towards magenta purple rather than salmon pink. Small pink-white head on top with good retention and some sparse lacing left behind.

Smell - Very perfumey, floral, well rounded though as these aromas are not overdone. Just a hint of fruitiness. Huge aromatics and very inviting for the summertime.

Taste - Pretty much like the nose, some light powdery yeast with faint spices and loads of floral taste. Hibiscus clearly the star.

Mouthfeel - Light body, soft carbonation, feel is a little flat.

Overall - DDC's Rosee D'hibiscus is a fine representative of the style with oodles of soft flowery smell and taste that is easy and enjoyable to drink. Certainly worth a try if you get an opportunity to.

I picked up a bottle of Brasserie Dieu du Ciel's Rosée D'hibiscus for $4.99 at The Lager Mill. I've been wanting to try this one and since I just now saw it on the shelf I thought I should give it a chance, so lets see how it goes. 2016 Vintage. Poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a teku.

A- The label is nice, it has a nice design that goes with the name and it's eye catching. It poured a pink and red color that took on more of a bright ruby and pink color when held to the light with a finger worth of bubbly light pink head that died down to a thin ring that eventually faded away and it left some spotty lacing behind. This is a good looking beer, the Hibiscus really comes through in the color.

S- The aroma starts off with a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness with a noticeable buttery aroma being the first to show up and goes into the hibiscus which imparts a floral and aromatic aromas. Up next comes the yeast which impart a slight bit of a stone fruit like aroma with a little bit of other fruity aromas in the background. Towards the end comes a little bit of noticeable spices along with some grainy and pale malt like aromas with the buttery and floral aromas sticking out the most in this beer. This beer has a pretty nice aroma that lives up to it's name.

T- The taste seems to be similar to the aroma and it starts off with just a slightly higher amount of medium sweetness that goes into the same buttery aspects that I got in the aroma being the first to show up and it's followed by the hibiscus which is very noticeable and still imparts those same very floral aspects that I got in the aroma. Up next comes the fruity yeast with stone fruits still sticking out the most and it's followed by the malts which impart more of a lighter sweet malt, pale malt and light grainy flavor. On the finish there's a slight bit of bitterness with a little bit of tartness too and it has a buttery, floral and yeasty flavors in the aftertaste. This is a pretty nice tasting beer that lives up to it's name.

M- Fairly smooth, a little buttery, a little creamy, on the thicker side of being medium bodied with a slightly higher amount of medium carbonation.

Overall I thought this was a pretty nice beer and a good example of the style, I've had more than a few Hibiscus beer and I've grown to not care for them too much, but I can still tell that this is pretty spot on for the style and the Hibiscus is showcased nicely. this beer had nice drinkability, one would be my limit and it would be nice for warm weather. What I like the most about this beer is that the hibiscus was showcased just like it should be. What I like the least about this beer is that it didn't have more tartness, I think this beer would work better with more sourness. I don't think I would buy this beer, but If I wanted a Hibiscus beer I would and I would recommend it to anyone who wants the same. All in all I liked this beer, it was just as advertised and it had no off flavors or anything like that. This isn't a favorite beer from this brewery, but it is a good example of the style. nice job guys, this is a good Hibiscus beer.

S- Nor a lot there. some fruit

T- Strawberry and hibiscus is mighty low More strawberry than anything.

O- Not a bad brew but light on flavor.

Pours Ruby Red and is full bodied. Easily one of my favorite wheat beers especially of the fruit and wheat variety. This beer is the rose' of beer. Lots of ripe berry notes . Very nuanced. Very complex and unfortunately very hard to find here in the state of California.

More like a sparkling wine than beer. The hibiscus is very subtle. It's described as a spiced strong beer but i don't taste any spices nor does it feel like a strong ale.
