This is one of the best Hefeweizens I have ever had. I’m a hop head so this one is just for me.
Look - It has a cloudy, yellow beautiful color to it with a nice white head
Smell - Ginger, orange and lemon, hoppy also. Not an overly bad hop but like a nice, sorta fruity hop. Very well balanced.
Taste - Lemon, and orange with a yeasty almost banana like taste. Has a very nice floral/fruity bite at the ends. It has a dry, bitter hop finish.
Tried for the first time back in 2011 and only just now adding it to my ratings. Maltier and thicker than the average belgian wit. Lacks the spices I expected as well. Musty and pretty well balanced. gripweed57 (2871) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2017
From old tasting notes. Labeled as "Rogue Half-a-Weizen". Hazy honey gold color. Interesting earthy citrus wheat malt aroma. Refreshingly bittersweet complex malt flavor, reminiscent of spices and peppercorns. A hint of ginger leads to a big hop finish. lbianchi66 (424) - FRANCE - DEC 6, 2015
Robe jaune, peu de mousse. Arômes céréales et fruits jaunes. Goût pêche, caramel, céréales. Final fruits confits. Plutôt longue en bouche. Une bonne bière blanche. Blairgus (4615) - California, USA - JUL 22, 2015

At first thought this was fun and unique with the subtle floral notes coming through but has it went on tended to be more bland.

Draught @ Albion. Hazy rich yellow with small off-white foamy head, slight citrus aroma, medium carbonation, faint orange peel taste, abrupt finish. Felt a bit thin and watery. epeter85 (54) - - NOV 18, 2014
Pours with a flat head. Spicy, dishwater soapy funk in taste. Beer has almost no smell. Very flat tasting and no body at all. Not a good hefeweizen.

"agreed more an american wheat than a hefe. no bubbllegum, clove, etc...citrusy, coriander and minimal ginger. not bad, not anything to go out of your way for either."

Served on tap in a weizen glass
Appearance – Served a hazy-golden orange colored brew with a billowy one finger white head. The head had some good staying power with it lasting some time before fading to leave streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma was rather light overall consisting of a bit of wheat, lemon, orange and banana. While still rather light, the heaviest of the aromas were that of yeast and some spice of coriander and ginger.
Taste – The taste was mild upfront consisting of a light wheat and bready flavor with a moderately strong citrus flavor. The citrus was predominantly of an orange nature with hints of lemon mixed within. A yeasty flavor develops quickly in the taste, leaving a rather pasty yeast cake taste on the tongue. The wheat and bread flavors intensify some more toward the end balancing out the yeast and when combined with a bit of ginger spice one is left with a more bready and lightly spiced flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is rather light with a carbonation level that is rather average. The combination of the two make for a smooth feel, which is rather appropriate for the yeasty and bready flavors of the brew.
Overall – An alright brew, but noting too exciting. Worth a try but not one I will likely come back to again. gschrade (1099) - Collinsville, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2014
I had this at Global Brew. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Taste coriander, spice, light. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.
