Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Banana, clove, floral aromas. Very floral, yeasty, wheat flavors. I?m not a fan of the floral flavors.

Can. Pours is a hazy yellow, banana, clove, blah blah blah. Not really sure why they added rose hips as it ruined this for me. Weird, fake tasting or something.

Pours a deep yellow (light orange?) with a fast-dissipating head. Aroma of bubblegum, cold pasta, and hospital. Taste is more bubblegum up front, marginal cloves, some rice noodles (what?) and a weird flavor in the finish which must be the rosé hips. Overall not bad, worth a try, but not a show stopper for me.

Rather liked Ride Again Pale Ale so I was willing to give this one a try.
The ’Bavarian WeissBier’ line had be excited, but then the rose hips and honey fine print put me off a bit.
Hazy yellow pour with a nice tight white head.
aroma is light banana wheat and clove, floral rose petal.
Astringent floral tones detract from the decent underlying yeast and wheat body. I feel like there is a nice Weissebier under there, and would like to see a regular 4-5% version without the rosehips. Don’t worry about being gimmicky and just brew good beer.

16 ounce can. I like the can´s design and the red color. Now to the beer. Cloudy yellow with good foam retention. The aroma is quite complex, somewhat murky, not clean. The initial taste is of German wheat beer, but the mouthfeel is more cloying with a higher viscosity. The aftertaste is strange with a very strong astringency that stays with you for a long time, right in the back of your throat. I am not getting the hint of sulfur, the floral note, nor the crisp, dry finish. This could have been a very good German wheat beer, but the "additional" ingredients are not helping here. All in all very drinkable. I just wish that they had not tried for a "slightly bigger interpretation of a traditional German wheat beer".
