A: Nice head to start, but the bubbles are pretty large and unstable. Predictably, the head dissipated quicker than I'd have liked, but it left enough lacing to satisfy my visual requirements. Nice bronze color. Pretty clear for a hefeweizen, but nice.

S: Some spice and a hint of floral, but nothing too overwhelming on the nose. Not much of the professed rose. Not much of the typical hefeweizens. No clove. No banana.

T: I get hit immediately with spicey esters of coriander. Interesting. Some wheat, but not pronounced. The floral rose comes through a bit, bit is in the back, not at all overwhelming. Comes off slightly timid, or balanced, depending on how you want to look at it. I like it, but I love the style and am a huge fan of floral flavor profiles, so I'm partial. All in all, a bit underwhelming and I think they could do this better. That by no means makes this a bad brew!

M: Much lighter body than expected. Watery almost.

Overall: this comes off more like a white beer, than a hefeweizen. But it's a nice brew to enjoy, whether or not mom is around.

I found this 650ml brown bottle at Sal's Liquors in Addison, IL. I've tried a lot of stuff from Rogue, but never saw this one before so I brought one home. I find it strange that the name is Mom's Hefeweizen but the Rogue website says it's a Belgian blonde ale. It's brewed with rose petals for the mother in all of us.

The beer poured a slightly cloudy golden yellow color with a huge 3-finger white head that lasted awhile and produced some good lacing.

The beer had an herbal and citrusy smell to it with a touch of rose petals - not very hefeweizen-like.

Herbal and spicy with a little sweetness from the wheat malts. There is also some lemon and orange citrus underneath with a bit of bitter orange peel taste from the hops. The spice may be clove, but there's no banana flavor at all, so it doesn't fit the typical hefeweizen profile.

It's not bad, but if you're expecting a typical hefeweizen, this isn't it. I would like to hear why Rogue is naming this beer Mom Hefeweizen, but then lists it as a Belgian blonde ale on their own web site. It doesn't make any sense. Those are two completely different styles.

Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.

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.

M: Watery, but whatever.

O: I liked this one. It had a lingering sweetness and it was very citrusy. I really think that it was more of a wit than a hef. Regardless, I won't support Rogue anymore from what I've heard about them.

OK, it is refreshing, but if you are searching for a style category, you will be disoriented. It is a little hoppy and thin for a hefeweized. There is a certain funkiness (maybe the Pacman yeast) to the nose as well. Oddly enough, the towering head is rather bitter. Here is where you will find the rose petal. Take a big gulp of the head and see for yourself! The color is good and a little cloudy. The nose is a little weak for a wheat beer, especially a hefewiezen. But it's not terrible. The taste is mildly sweet with a rather grainy dry finish. Body is light and bubbly. The bottle I had was a bomber. The large bottle prohibited a single pour to add the yeast to the pour. This left the first serving light and the second serving heavy. Lots of floaties in the sediment. The beer improved after the addition of the sediment, too. More body, silkiness but overall still a little rough. It's an interesting beer, but I think they are trying to do a little too much with a style that is better when brewed right up the middle. Every beer does not have to be a home run. A one-run single is pretty good and accomplishes the same thing. Try to brew a hefeweizen that rival Sierra Nevada's or one of the better German hefe's. We all would applaud that.
