(bottle - 22 oz) Lightly hazy gold pour with a puffy white head. Light but floral aroma (shocking right?) with some light spice under it. Lots of rose petal and sweetness in the flavor at the start with a dry wheat backbone and a lightly spiced and bitter finish.

A 2 finger head sits on a clear golden brew, slowly shrinking leaving nice lacing behind. The nose has wheat and a very floral smell. There’s a sweetness there that reminds me of honey. Wheat is in the taste, light spiciness, not really a clove thingy, nor banana which I half expected. Just some light spiciness that maybe comes from the rose petals? I’m thinking the sweet notes come from them.. Medium bodied, nice level of carbonation. In the world of Hefes, this doesn’t really stack up but it’s a nice enough brew to drink.

rougeau13 (1987) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Clear golden with a big, bubbly, off-white head. Noticeable rose petals in the aroma, which is fortunate, because I feel as though they are trying to cover up an aroma that is otherwise grain, cheese, and honey, or grain, cheese, and vomit. The cheese element doesn’t even smell like actual cheese. Instead I get the easy cheese phony stuff that comes in the can with the nipple you push to get at your phony cheese. Taste is a little sweet and a little cheesy and very mildly bitter; and lacking most of the ez cheeze/vomit character, it is the sole redemption of this beer. Fairly light bodied with semi-lively carbonation. I feel like this could have been done better....

weihenweizen (1679) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a weizen glass. Pours slightly hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is grainy, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is estery malt, grainy, rose petals, and slightly bitter crisp hop finish. Mediocre, especially for the price.

thegreenrooster (3189) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is your typical wheat malt with a definite rose water there. Flavor is just a basic wheat malt base with not much after that. The rose in the aroma is totally lost in the flavor. Maybe a little rose perfume toward the end. Odd that this version has a lesser score than the base version.

OK, it is refreshing, but if you are searching for a style category, you will be disoriented. It is a little hoppy and thin for a hefeweized. There is a certain funkiness (maybe the Pacman yeast) to the nose as well. Oddly enough, the towering head is rather bitter. Here is where you will find the rose petal. Take a big gulp of the head and see for yourself! The color is good and a little cloudy. The nose is a little weak for a wheat beer, especially a hefewiezen. But it’s not terrible. The taste is mildly sweet with a rather grainy dry finish. Body is light and bubbly. The bottle I had was a bomber. The large bottle prohibited a single pour to add the yeast to the pour. This left the first serving light and the second serving heavy. Lots of floaties in the sediment. The beer improved after the addition of the sediment, too. More body, silkiness but overall still a little rough. It’s an interesting beer, but I think they are trying to do a little too much with a style that is better when brewed right up the middle. Every beer does not have to be a home run. A one-run single is pretty good and accomplishes the same thing. Try to brew a hefeweizen that rival Sierra Nevada’s or one of the better German hefe’s. We all would applaud that.

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Pearlesent yellow with a ring of white head. Smells like a wet basement with a bouquet of roses in the corner. A sour dough scent that gets a little floral wet rose. Fades a little banana wheatish.

stevoj (2070) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Slight floral essence to what is a weak kristallweizen. I expected better from Rogue...

pino (27) - - MAY 12, 2014
Floral aroma with an orange acidity. Pours cloudy yellow with white head. Looks of a traditional hefe. Starts with citrus and mild banana subtle floral taste and sugar balance well in the middle. Finishes a bit sour.
