Another great drink from the reliable Rogue Ales! Sandy-yellow-blonde in appearance. Strong floral bouquet. Hint of fresh baked bread. Light to the touch. Goes down slightly lemony. Terrific! Great looking bottle as usual!

Very cloudy and instantly smell the corriander and ginger. Interesting name for a belgian wheat. Didnít need a lemon at all. The finest American made wheat. Extremely refreshing, medium-bodied and delicious.

Citrus, lemony aroma with moderate hop profile. Very nice. In order to get the full character of this brew, you should tip it upside down several times before uncapping it in order to get the yeast mixed in. Otherwise your first glass will look clear, almost unfiltered, while your second will look totally unfiltered. Believe me, the taste is enhanced with full yeast. Lots of visible carbonation, white head. Gold, cloudy body, when mixed.Nice flavor. Not a typical hefe (no banana or clove notes), still, more perfumy hop profile than usual and very good and enjoyable.

June, 2003: Wow! The first Rogue to blow my socks off. A swirling dizzying Arabian dance of pefumes - pour a glass of this and you donít need scented candles to create a seductive atmosphere. Soft, but firm mouthfeel with plenty of corners and edges to provide the thrills of a Monaco Grand Prix. This is one awesome brew out of the top drawer. There are fruits, there are waves of gentle sweetness that engulf the mouth but never swamp it, there are moments of warmth, and there are moments of meditation. And the finish dries out to a long, long, ever changing and developing bitterness. Yummy! Iím going back for more!

This is one of the best Hefeweizens I have ever had. I’m a hop head so this one is just for me. Look - It has a cloudy, yellow beautiful color to it with a nice white head Smell - Ginger, orange and lemon, hoppy also. Not an overly bad hop but like a nice, sorta fruity hop. Very well balanced. Taste - Lemon, and orange with a yeasty almost banana like taste. Has a very nice floral/fruity bite at the ends. It has a dry, bitter hop finish.

I really liked this brew complete with a superb head, spicy aroma, and a full, round texture that offers all the malty goodness I come to expect from a witbier. Itís not overly medicinal being more crisp and clean. No banana gum here just a solid example of a Belgian Wit. Wait, itís labeled as a wheat ale. This is totally Wit.

Now I really liked this beer, but I also like anything thatís a hef. I would definately buy it again. The hook for this beer is that itís brewed with rose petals. I donít really appreciate that myself though. That is to say, if roses taste like they smell then I didnít taste it. But Iíve never eaten a rose so maybe they taste like something else. Regardless it tasted like apricots and oranges.

I have a deep-rooted respect for this brewery (and their brewmaster, Maier). Needless to say, I like this beer. I donít feel like going into a big description of this beer; I just have two words: GOOD SHIT.

Wow - I wasnít expecting anything from this, other than another boring American Wheat. What a surprise then. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with large foamy head. Rich zesty fruity aroma - light fruit such as peach, lemon plus a hint of coriander. Flavor is nice and sweet, with plenty of zesty almost minty malt, with fruity tones and still just a hint of coriander. One of the top American Wheats Iíve found.

This brew poured a cloudy yellow. The head on this brew quickly disappeared. There was no lacing on the side of my mug. To me it had a fruity, citrusy aroma to it. Carbonation was evident. There was some bitterness to this brew, but not overwhelming. There was an aftertaste to this brew and again it was not overwhelming which is to my liking. I enjoyed drinking this brew.
