COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hips Donít Lie is a slightly bigger interpretation of a traditional German wheat beer featuring a refreshing light body with a crisp, dry finish. A high proportion of malted wheat lends a round, pasta-like character that is complemented by a delicate balance of clove-like phenolics, banana esters and just a hint of sulfur from the classic German weissbeir yeast strain. Rose hips give this beer a subtle floral note while the honey lends to the dryness in the finish. Hops Donít Lie is big enough to be full flavored but refreshing enought to warrant another taste.

Can - Golden with a slight haze and a big white head. Nose is tropical fruit syrup with a bit of spice and sweet wheat. Taste is sweet wheat with some tropical fruit, a bit of banana, and some spicing. A bit of bitterness too. Slick and medium bodied.

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.

maekchu (1973) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 10, 2014
Can from Zippís Liquors. Fresh floral nose. Light amber color. Gentle fruity initial: light tropical fruit / some grass rises in mid, along with a weedy bitterness / thin and slightly sweet finish. Thin-medium body. The honey adds some depth and some heavy sweetness, which seems out of place in this style. Doesnít really seem like a weissbier.

Trev (1893) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Rather liked Ride Again Pale Ale so I was willing to give this one a try. The íBavarian WeissBierí 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. Donít worry about being gimmicky and just brew good beer.

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 bright but cloudy yellow with white head. Bananas, cloves, rose hips, and wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a floral note. Solid.
