Red Brick Hibiscuwit
Red Brick Hibiscuwit is a Belgian-Style Wheat Ale brewed with hibiscus, orange peel and cinnamon.
The beer pours a light pink color, quite a bit like ruby red grapefruit juice. This has a nice strong aroma for a Wheat Ale, a little on the sweet side, generically fruity and a lot of cinnamon. The taste has a bit of slight grapefruit tartness, mildly sweet with a bit of delicate earthiness (the hibiscus I’m guessing). The wild card in the taste is the cinnamon. Seemed out of place to me when I read it on the can, but it really adds the extra spice this needs.
This beer is a bit strange… but I kind of like it! I have been trying very hard as of late to learn to appreciate wheat beers more, and this is one is certainly creative and enjoyable. I’m not sure how many of these I could have in one sitting, but it is a very tasty creation!
