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.

Great balance - wheat, coriander, saaz. nicely done.
