half weizen. I’m assuming the spices make this a half wit(ha ha). pours hazy yellow. the pacman yeast prevents the customary exploding head. sweetish malt, tart wheat. good spice flavours coming from the ginger and coriander. a rogue amount of hops. quite tasty.

As much as I love Rogue - I have to give this one lower than usual ratings - the aroma reminds me of sweaty feet - thank God it doesn’t taste like that! The appearance is not as cloudy as a wheat should be. Makes up for it with a smooth finish and a tart bite. I’ll try again sometime - maybe I got a bad bottle.

it seemed hoppy to me. extremely yeasty and interesting but not really my style. very peppery.

Despite the deep hazy amber beer with the nice foam, I’m going to have to ding the appearance for the scary bluehair painted onto the bottle. Zippy, peppery butter aroma. Ginger stands out, though this tastes a lot like a wit to me. Stiff meringue foam. Craamy palate, cood carbonation.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2002
note: forgot to agitate so one (1) deuce produced two (2) different beers in two glasses. weak aroma but very yeasty/bready taste and super hoppy for a wheat beer

Medium straw color, cloudy, quickly receding head. Spices and Saaz in the nose. Spices dominate the flavor. Finish is a tad too bitter. Unusual, interesting, and pretty decent overall.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - JUL 11, 2002
very pleasant wheat. I found it inbetween the german and belgiasn wheats. soft wheat and yeast tastes of the grman wheat with the citrus notes and spices of a belgian wit. very good drinking

Indra (2626) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 18, 2002
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.
