3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy yellow golden with a small white head. Aroma of rasberries, wheat and lemon. Floral notes as well. Flavor is kind of soapy with wheat, orange, lemon, coriander with a mild hop bite at the end. A little watery, but I really liked the character the rose gave this beer. I think it complemented the style well. Refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Triple Rock. Served opaque golden with a tiny ring of white. Lots of wheat in the nose with some coriander. The flavor is mainly just a bunch of wheat, pretty faint spicy coriander and citrus. The finish is semi-dry and fairly earthy (from the roses, maybe?), bitterness a 2. Minimal carbonation with a light body. More like an American wheat with subtle wit notes.
