2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle, purchased from Whole Foods, shared with locals. Mostly clear golden orange color. Pours with a big, slightly off-white head. Medium body. Smooth, soft lighter carbonation. Dry texture. Moderate sweet taste. Hint of tart. Light lemon, hint of floral rose but not much of the rose in the flavor. Some acidic that I don’t really appreciate. Not a great hefeweizen, not a fan of this. Texture is a bit too soft and ultra dry. Would appreciate a little more fullness.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour from a 22 oz. bottle shared by brew33crew- thanks again, Jason! Pours a pale cloudy-yellow gold with a white head. Notes of wheat, pale malts, minerals, faint banana, straw, and light florals. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a crisp, dry mouthfeel. Not bad, though off style. Very dull.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber to taster (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a very slightly hazy golden orange with fluffy off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells semi-sweet and yeasty with floral notes. Tastes like it smells, only a little milder, with a solid mouthfeel. Decent beer, but not very hefe-like.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not the worst beer but pretty bad by rogue standards. Rose flavor is lacking and it tastes more like an elevated budweiser than a hefe in my opinion.

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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: hazy, a cross between gold and orange, has a small white head that dissipates quickly, very minimal lacing
Aroma: floral, lemon, citrus, berry, faint
Taste: coriander, lemon, some hints of bitterness on the finish
Palate: highly carbonated, slight bitter aftertaste, dry mouthfeel, some alcohol shines thru
Overall: nothing really stands out as amazing about this beer, not that it is bad just not enough flavor
