2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: cloudy medium orange-gold, short-lived white head, minimal lacing. Aroma:wheat, slight coriander, orange peel, and maybe bubblegum. Taste: slightly musty, primarily with a wheat-heavy flavor, with minimal citrus accents. Finish: quickly fading, with a watery palate. Notes: Below average hefeweizen. Probably doesn’t help that there are probably hundreds of truly excellent hefeweizens out there at almost every store you can find, so when you run across one that doesn’t measure up, it’s really noticeable. This one had light flavors and a watery palate; would have liked a hint of the rose petals advertised on the bottle. I expect a lot better from these guys, but I guess they can’t all be winners.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
750ml bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Traditional hefeweizen glass. Pours a deep yellow-light gold with medium head. Aroma was rather light with mostly a wheat beer smell. Not much on the citrus or rose petals. The taste was really lacking. It tasted like a light wheat beer. Blue Moon has more complexity than this beer. Very disappointed.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Rogue Portland. Pours pale yellowish golden with medium head that fades quickly. Aroma is fruity spice and nice floral aroma. Taste is clean lightly toasted malt with sharp but thin bitterness on the finish that fades quickly. Very refreshing. Lovely on a hot day. I’m impressed, Rogue’s lighter offerings have disappointed in the past.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Elle est blonde trouble et garni le verre d’une dentelle en vagues. Les arômes sont faibles, mais on arrive à percevoir du malt et de la pâte à pain avec des effluves de grand air. Le goût joue dans les mêmes cordes, c’est-à-dire, de blé et de malt, alors qu’un côté acidulé et légèrement amer viennent se greffer au portrait. Aucune traces de pétales de roses perceptible à mes sens. Néanmoins plaisante à boire. (685-090613)

bottle. golden with small head. hefeweizen in name, but i don’t catch any of the traditional spice. no clove, no banana. i don’t notice the rose either. it’s just a simple wheat beer, and not bad, but i expected more flavor.
