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.

16 oz can. Slightly hazy yellow, minimal carbonation. Light bodied, easy to sip on. Flavor is wheat, honey, and soft esters initially. Fades into a very dry and crisp citrus and rhurbarb like flavor. Vitamin C pills often contain rosehips, and the finish reminds me exactly of that. Slightly sour, bitter, and medicinal. I wouldnít call it a bad beer by any means, but if they just toned down the rosehips a little bit to make it less prominent, I think this could make for a delicious and unique beer.

Tall can poured into pint glass. Aroma is fairly sweet with hints of fruit with some honey and floral notes. Minimal head. Hazy, unfiltered appearance. Taste is mild wheat with the honey making its presence felt. Flavor doesnít stick around too long. Slight spice with some banana. Not one of my favorites.

Poured from the can into a hefeweizen glass. Aroma - clove and banana. Slight hint of floral hops. Breast malt in the background. Appearance - fluffy white head. Pale straw. Hazy. Taste - more clove forward. Slight hint of banana and warming alcohol. Bit of a floral tartness in the back. Mouthfeel - dry crisp finish. Spritzy carbonation. Medium light bodied. Overall - a decent Bavarian Weiss beer. I tend to like them with more banana esters over the cloves. Refreshing and balanced ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (2505) - 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.
