Produces a short lived, rocky, off-white head over a hazy, slightly pinkish copper beer.

Fruity and floral with a hint of hops. Apple juice is prominent with peppercorn in the background. This has a very interesting aroma profile that is, in a word, fresh.

A Dogfish Head snifter does not amplify any flavors as this one is rather subdued for a spiced beer. Regardless, this is interesting and tasty with some peppercorn and little follow through. There is a light sweetness in an otherwise well-balanced beer.

A medium-to-light body with light astringency and carbonation.

A refreshing afternoon beer, well suited on its own or with food.

Part of my Dieu Du Ciel binge.

A- Poured into a pint glass with a pretty awesome pink-red hue, just a tiny bit of haze. Small bubbly white head forms and doesn't retain all that well. No lace but still a cool looking beer.

S- Fairly standard here and not huge. I get hints of yeast spice like coriander, raisin, green apple, wine and a floral note.

T- Has an interesting acidic and tart wine feel. There are nice fruit notes of apple, white grape, grapefruit and raisin. Also get yeast spice, coriander and floral notes. Malt and yeast bread throughout.

MF- Foamy light body with a definite tart acidic feel. Somewhat bitter spiced in the finish.

Pretty complex beer with a wine, fruit and beer interface. While complex it is pretty light bodied and refreshing, not a very common thing.

Have had this beer many times killing time waiting for the wife to get home and this six pack was bought for her. Guess she gets five or less of them. The best word I have heard to describe this beer patiolicious. This beer walks the fine line between a dry French Rosee wine and beer with a mouth dry quality that just makes this beer disappear, oh look at that the glass is empty.

A: About a finger of white, bubbly head, tinged faintly pink. Looks like a ruby red grapefruit tinged with orange. Cloudy, some bubbles. Looks so good and refreshing.

S: Yum, sour yeast, floral hibiscus, peach and some spices.

T: The taste goes from the yeast, to the hibiscus and back again. Fruity & faintly sour. Ends yeasty and a little grainy. Nice and refreshing.

M: Clean, carbonated, lingering flavors.

O: I quite like the hibiscus. Very interesting and drinkable. Definitely recommended.

Poured from an 11.5 ounce bottle into a Dogfish Head signature glass. Notched 6 and 2, whatever that means. Batch 62?

A: Intriguingly rosey, but with an orange tint. We'll go with peachy. A white-white head forms, stays, then later swirls across the surface. Opaque, but translucent. Decent lacing.

S: Flowers and slightly sour yeast combine to produce a soft, fruity nose. Coincidentally, perhaps, it smells of peaches.

T: Refreshing and divine. This really hits the spot right this second. The cool hibiscus soothes the tongue, reminds me of Egypt, and provides the perfect sweet-tart-fruity foundation on which to build this beer. The taste is somewhat front-loaded, however, and the powerful flavours taper off dramatically midway through, leading to an overly soft endtaste and very little aftertaste. Lightly sour fruit (fresh cherries? citrus?) spikes through near the end.

M: Quenching, slightly sour, and light.

O: Immensely drinkable, most appealing, and a wonderfully executed 'fruit' beer. Interesting and excellent; highly recommended. Would drink again, despite the high price tag. Another great beer from a superlative brewery.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a slightly hazy, but bright grapefruit pink color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Light lace is left behind.
S: A nice dose of Belgian, yeasty funk in the nose. Some fruity esters and finises very floral. Assuming that is from the hibiscus.
T: Light funky yeast, some sweetness, even some grapefruit flavors. Lightly floral. Not bad, but it seems to be lacking just a bit.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Just a bit thin, and I wish this was more crisp. Not hard to drink at all. The bottle will be gone in no time.

Really not bad. It is just a bit lacking, and I wish there was a bit more to it. I know that is pretty generic, but something is missing for me to love this. I have more bottles that I will certainly finish, and maybe it will grow on me some more.

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.
