UPDATED: AUG 28, 2013 This was a nice session hefe, but I probably wouldn’t purchase it regularly. The aroma was probably the best quality, with lots of citrus, spice, and floral accents. Head retention was poor and short-lived, but poured an attractive hazy gold and overall it had the light, spiced body you’d expect from a wheat beer. The body was light and refreshing, tasting like what you’d expect from a wheat beer, with a nice citrus finish. Dogbrick (13006) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Sample at Daily Growler. Hazy golden color with a medium thin white head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of wheat and spice. Light-bodied with flavors of wheat, coriander and malt. The finish is wheaty with a citrus and spice aftertaste. Slightly above average overall. JaBier (7958) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Sample at the Daily Growler on 8/1/13. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of malt, creamy wheat, and some yeasty esters. Creamy wheat flavor with a sweet, thin finish. bpreo (2836) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 28, 2013
I found this at Mo’s Chowder House in Newport Oregon under the name "Rogue Mo’s Ale". It’s an American Pale Wheat Ale. Good to great. cheap (5855) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2013
I liked this. On tap at the bocktown. Smooth and easy, right from the start. Almost has a slight berry perfumy aroma, just a hint. Same with taste, initially some wisp of a berry thing in there. Very unique and like able. Enjoyable as the session continues. Goes down surprizinlgly easy. Refined, well behaved. Very mild fruit smell keeps arising from the glass. Yes, ok by me. Look is not as cloudy as yer typpy hefe. Impressed.

This is a nice sessionable Hefe. I don’t think it is overkill on the spices, it seems to be just right. koppertone (63) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
Now I really liked this beer, but I also like anything that’s a hef. I would definately buy it again. The hook for this beer is that it’s brewed with rose petals. I don’t really appreciate that myself though. That is to say, if roses taste like they smell then I didn’t taste it. But I’ve never eaten a rose so maybe they taste like something else. Regardless it tasted like apricots and oranges.

Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Pretty inviting pour, vigorous carbonation and a deep gold. Nose is soft and dry, bracing rather than the glove-slap of American spice adjuncts. That and the taste are pretty muted and understated, but that’s actually a positive in the case of most beers in this style. Just a touch of spice to meld well with the dry hops. Not bad. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - FEB 24, 2013
On tap in Newport. Golden with tiny white head. Scent is bananas and whaet. Taste is big on wheat, low on fruit. superspak (5582) - Michigan, USA - FEB 16, 2013
22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger fairly dense bright white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, coriander, ginger, clove, wheat, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity; fairly weak on strength as expected. Taste of pear, lemon, apple, coriander, ginger, clove, wheat, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. No bitterness; with lingering notes of pear, lemon, apple, coriander, ginger, clove, wheat, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance of malt, spice, and fruity ester flavors; with a good amount of flavor that is not watery at all; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good witbier style. Good balance of malt, spice, and fruity ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
