3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2011 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium to dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (dough), with a light note of honeydew. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A pleasant and simple quaffer, nothing more or less.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy yellow color with a lot of suspended yeast.Unclear if it was my pour or if it's just a very yeasty brew.Aroma was hoppy,sweet with a slight aroma of citrus in it as well.Lemon i believe.Very smooth brew with a definate hop tase that is mellow and non over powering.Slight lemon taste,very slight you haveto almost look for it to be there.The yeast doesn't seem to be a problem for taste it stay's away from disrupting the taste.the feel in the mouth is kind of watery thin almost as if this would be a dead brew without the hops.There is a slight hop after taste that fades some what slowly.Overall it's not a bad brew it's pretty decent but i think there are better brews like this one out there.

Little to no head. Slight bitterness throughout. Slight nutty flavor from the buckwheat. A very toned down pale ale. Good brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a small head of fine to medium sized off white bubbles that as it receded left a fair lacing. Its body was a cloudy amber color with just a little carbonation rising in the middle of the glass. It has aroma of hops. It had a initially slightly bitter taste that finished much more strongly. It was just an OK brew for me. Not one I'd seek out again.

This particular wheat beer did not impress me all that much and I like wheat beers. It poured a medium, creamy head. It had a cloudy appearance to it. It had a somewhat of a fruity, citrusy aroma to it. There was some bitterness noted with this brew. It had an aftertaste that lingered, but it was not an overwhelming aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Full hoppy aroma. Light golden color with large white head. Smooth flavor with medium body. Flavor begins somewhat tangy and a bit sweet. Tapers to a full, roasted, mildly hoppy, somewhat dry finish. Lost carbonation rather quickly.

I was not impressed with this beer at all. I'm usually a fan of wheats, but the beer just didn't do it for me. There's a few hints of spices and grain, with a sweet taste that goes well with the hops, but the flavor is weak and uninspiring.

Not bad for a wheat beer. I'm more of a stout fan, but this wheat has a sweet taste with a smattering of nut. I was not as impressed with this Rogue as I was with some of their others, but it could be in large part to my enjoyment of the darker flavors.

Out of the Rainbow Rogue variety pack, I think this was my favorite (maybe the mocha porter). Real unique sweet malt and buckwheat flavor. I really enjoyed this one. Very drinkable.
