Days of the Beer, September 22

The beer for today is Dieu du Ciel Rosée dHibiscus.

On September 22, 1982, Billie Paul Piper was born. Piper began as a teen pop singer, and then moved on to acting. From 2005 to 2006 she played Rose Tyler, a companion to the Doctor, on the TV show "Doctor Who". (She also came back for episodes in season 4).

She currently is on the Showtime series, "Secret Diary of a Call Girl" starring as Belle. Which is almost reason enough for me to get something other than rabbit ears for my TV.

As to the beer:

The Rosée d'Hibiscus is a soft spoken wheat beer. The rose colour comes from the hibiscus flowers added during the brewing process. The aromas and flavour of this tropical flower are very prominent in the beer, giving it a slight acidity and a very agreeable fragrance. It is the perfect thirst quencher on a hot summer day.
I had this beer on August 23. I'm not sure where all it is available. I picked it up at Archer Liquors, in Chicago.

David Tennant is the best Doctor.*ninja*
