3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Didn’t really know what to expect from this beer but it was really good. Gold in color with a nice 3 finger head. Aroma was slightly sweet with notes of grains and touch of honey, no rose though. Taste was grains with a slight sweet flavor upfront and a well balanced finish.

well, MoM this is ok (but where are those rose petals?)
But, actually, in dim light, or in very bright light, there is a red tint in the glass full, but sometimes, roses are not alwys red but the bottle tipped is w/out much residue.
i like beer.

Kinda flat out of the bottle. The floral aroma and flavor is nice, but there’s not really a whole lot else going for it. Ends up being a little boring.

Bue en mai 2014. Très florale et mielleuse. Trop douce et aucune amertume. J’ai l’impression de boire de l’eau sucré. J’ai eu de la difficulté à finir la bouteille tellement le liquide me tombait sur le cœur.

I’ve never tasted rose petals. This is a pleasant beer and easy to drink. Not too high ABV so can drink many.

Maybe if I tried side by side, the roses would become more. Clear golden pour with ring of white head. Slight floral notes are present, but not abrassive. Yeasty bready character. Not all that refreshing. meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottled dating. Very highly carbonated upon opening. Pours hazy deep golden color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, light banana, pepper, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt/honey, and herbal/earthy rose notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, light banana, pepper, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, light banana, pepper, wheat, bread, light honey, and herbal/floral earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt/honey, and herbal/earthy rose flavors; with a good malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very solid witbier. All around good robustness and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt/honey, and herbal/earthy rose flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bomber into a weizen glass on 05.08.14.
A: See through gold/yellow. 1 finger head.
S: Spices, coriander, orange peel.
T: Orange peel, rose petals, wheat are dominant. Coriander is subtle.
O: I liked this one. It had a lingering sweetness and it was very citrusy. Regardless, I won’t support Rogue anymore from what I’ve heard about them.
