Rosee Hibiscus by Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel
« on: September 30, 2011, 08:34:27 PM »
Bought an 11.5 oz bottle of this on a whim at the grocery store tonight. I generally am cautious with fruit beers, but this is delicious and also beautiful in the glass. It's a little tart, but with plenty of flowery notes, all woven in with that hard-to-pin-down hibiscus flavor. It's orange-pink with lots of haze, and not overcarbonated the way some Belgian beer is these days. Even at 5% ABV I'm sipping very slowly to make it last.

It's a decent beer. for hibiscus I like the saison baudelaire from Jolly Pumpkin. but the rosee is nice.

By the By hibiscus is not a fruit but a flower so it would be an Herb beer. Pedantic
