3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 Definitely a winner hefe. Some Belgian ideas incorporated, and it has lovely malt and spice flavors with a downy soft body and prickly palate. Unfiltered. Rogue hops right there at the end, of course. Quite tasty indeed and one of the best American Wheat style beers available.

Rather bitter and somewhat unimpressive. Didn’t rock my world. This was indeed about half a weizen. Where’s the other half?

A cloudy yellow with hues of orange. Thin head and lace. Nose of wheat,coriander and saaz. This is good. Wheaty/grainy malts on the palate. Saaz and coriander mix in beautifully along with a perfect ginger snap. Hops come through in the perfect intensity, adding great charater to a uniqe brew. Lovely unfiltered body that holds all the flavors very well. These guys can brew.

Overly impressed. I am not a fan of Hefe’s but this was good, though I missed the hopps.

I’m not a big fan of Helfaweisen’s, however for a Helf, this was one of my favorites.

More style points. Interesting combination of flavors. Spices like coriander, orange peel perhaps, and wheat. More like a belgian wit-pilsner.

Like most Rogue products, this is heavily hopped. In this beer however, I find the hops to be detrimental to the overall flavour. The bitterness is just too much for a light styled wheat beer.

A bit too hoppy and -dare I say it- sour for my taste, but nice to look at and tasty as it hits the tongue. ’Spose I should give the brewer’s other products a chance, though.

An enjoyable beer. not as well balanced as the Germans, but still pretty good for an American wheat. Hoppier than a typical hefeweizen. Good head.

I have a deep-rooted respect for this brewery (and their brewmaster, Maier). Needless to say, I like this beer. I don’t feel like going into a big description of this beer; I just have two words: GOOD SHIT.
