LOL at the "Belgian style blonde ale" description. How do they figure that? Pacman yeast, wheat, 2-row, sterling hops, and honey? sounds like wheat beer. okay, so not much to say about this as it smells, looks and tastes the same as the regular (old?) MoM Hefeweizen. the rose petals are impossible to discern. the pacman is musty and doughy and earthy as usual, the hops are low, the acid is medium, and the sweetness is medium high. lacks flaws but also lacks depth and thereís little to get excited about.

Pours a hazy, light amber with a small white head. Aroma is wheat and some spicy notes. Flavor is wheat with hints of honey, sugar, spices, and fruit. Light body with soft carbonation. Interesting though not great.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a small rocky white head. Nose has some wheat, bready yeast, a touch of herbal floral tones (rose, but I wouldnít have guessed it if I didnít know the description), and a little bit of citrus. Palate was crisp, medium and smooth with a decent linger. Has a charming wheaty flavor of wheat grain, bread, some doughy hefe yeast, and some nice complexities of rose pedals and light citrusy tones that intrigue me after every sip...and the body is so crisp with a finish so lasting, itís hard to stop sipping...

From the 650 ml. bottle. The pour is basically golden yellow with a quick fizzy head that fizzles. The aroma is rather thin but I get a little wheat, grass, and a touch of floral esters. The body is thin. The taste comes off as more bitter than I expected with a kind of acidic quality to it. I was thinking about my late mother when I drank this. Not her style.

Beer has nice hop aroma. More earthy than floral and some of that Belgian dusty.funky smell but very light. Roses arenít here. Has a foamy short lived white head atop an appropriately hazy golden yellow beer. Taste is sweet but with an interesting anise note. Good biscuitiness. No banana or clove. A little thin in the body, but very smooth. Drinks easy.

Bomber. Poured slightly cloudy medium golden with a short, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up husks, honey, and wheat with floral and herbal accents.. honey played slightly too big a role for my liking. The flavor found another dose of honey plus red wheat at the core.. sweet and bitter floral notes laced throughout.. finished grainy and bitter, with a tasty floral aftertaste. Light-medium bodied and grainy on the palate.. good carbonation level.. this wasnít great, but a number of things worked.

Bomber poured a clear gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast, rose and citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of wheat, citrus and light rose with a smooth lingering citrus finish.

Bottle. The pour was a hazy dark yellow with some light brown undertones and a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that reduced down to a small cap of foam, which produced some excellent streaky lacing. The aroma was of a light bread malt, a mild citrus hop and a sweaty yeast with notes of honey, citrus (lemon), wheat, a hint of spice and a mild floral scent. The taste had a lightly sweet wheat flavor with notes of honey and coriander early on and then flavor progressed into a much larger yeast taste with a hint of citrus, a touch of spiciness and a slight floral presence at the end. The flavor lasted and average duration after the swallow with a citrusy, yeasty, mildly spicy taste left to linger. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a good strong lively carbonation. Overall a very tasty and refreshing yeasty brew that had a touch of spiciness and a nice floral twist, in fact this is what makes this beer different over other Hefeweizens...

Iím always happy to have a new Rogue beer in my hands even if itís a hefe and even after first sip knowing this ainít great. Hazy golden yellow murk with a very small bubbly cap that banishes as quickly as my happiness for this beer. The aroma is pretty plain with wheat, here and there sharp citrus, faint rose that creeps in when warmer. The taste is the same with even less rose, and a faint bitterness. Straight forward dull hefe. Rogue should stay away from this style. Highly carbonated and booooooooooring.

sulawang (545) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2012
pours marmalade orange, small head. Drinks very wheaty and airy, low depth and almost watery. No rose petal flavour at all, quite disappointing. Partially sour and not particularly exciting. Drinkable, but barely.
