look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

No freshness date, but based on the Rogue's release schedule I'd say this is under a month old.

Appearance - Pours a hazy golden orange with a white, finger width head. Fair retention, leaving a sparse layer of microbubbles coating the surface and thickening around the edge of the glass. No lace present.

Smell - Predominant wheat aroma, with lesser notes of citrus, floral character and a touch of rose.

Taste - Wheat, hints of milkiness, light touches of orange zest, slight spice and a very faint rose sweetness on the back end.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium in body with moderate carbonation; fair tingle on the tongue. Crisp, clean finish.

Overall - Much better than the Half-e-weizen I remember having a good 8-9 years ago. Perhaps the addition of rose has given this a sweeter, more palatable flavor. The name is misleading; this is not a hefeweizen. Why not make it a true hefe by using the weizen yeast they use for the Roguenbier Rye they brew? It's beyond me. Regardless, this is a solid, drinkable wheat beer. It's currently categorized as a witbier, and based on flavor profile, I'd say that's about right. I'd consider this a once a year purchase.

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.

Review for Mom Hefeweizen, ale brewed with rose petals. I disagree with BA that this is the same beer as Half-E-Weizen.

A - Light gold, semi-opaque body. As a hefe it could use a little more haze for my liking. Pure white head sits relatively low with poor retention and lace for the style.

S - Not much there. Straw, green tea.

T - Funny... the bottle says it's a hefe and BA has it up as a wit, and while it's not a great version of either, I'd say it actually comes off more as a wit too. Soft wheat, light orange peel, and a soft floral finish.

M - Soft, smooth, light body. Easy drinking, but really low carbonation.

O - I can appreciate the flavor profile knowing that it's not supposed to be a straight-up hefe, but it still falls short of great.

Hmm... very unspecial. Old bottle the culprit? Perhaps - darn Rogue not putting an easy 'brewed on' date or a best-by date.

Anyhow... a very mediocre hef at best; the rose thing almost non existent. A touch of rose while exhaling after a good swallow.

It is impressive how they get this yeasty wheat taste out of the Pacman yeast; I'm assuming a super warm ferment temp gets the bubblegum notes it needs.

Won't seek out again.

This is a review of Rogue Mom Hefeweizen Ale Brewed with Rose Petals.

Pours a bright gold slightly hazy liquid with a white head.

Aroma is very sweet with some wheaty tang.

Flavor is rather too sweet for my taste. A hefeweizen should have lots of tang and spices, maybe some bananas and fruity notes. This beer had few of those elements. I did pick up a slightish hint of the promised rose petals, but they were pretty faint. Lingering sweetness.

Mouthfeel was medium to light.

Overall, this beer was kinda disappointing. I had higher expectations for it based on who brewed it.

Into a weizen glass. Hazing medium straw color with half a finger of head.
Smells like dry hay, resin and lemon. Faint aroma overall.
Tastes like apples and mild bitterness.
Crisp and light body. Moderate carbonation.
I think the rose petals add a something to the taste but it's hard to place it. I enjoyed it, but there is not much to it.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pilsner glass at 45 degrees.

Appearance; A two finger head that has poor retention. The color of the head the off white, that is foamy and frothy. The color of the beer is pale orange with gold highlights. The clarity of the beer is hazy, probably due to the yeast.

Nose: Spicy wheat notes that is grainy, A floral hop note that has perfume, citrus, pine, and honey notes. Other aromas in the beer pepper, orange, herbal, and a sweet note.

Taste: A crisp grain notes that is has a touch of sweetness similar to honey. The hop notes are perfume, floral, citrus, and orange. Other flavors is pepper, herbal and pine.
A tartness exist within the intermingling flavors.

The mouth feel of the beer is carbonated, crisp, clean, and slightly astringent.

Overall: the body of the beer is medium light and finish is medium. This beer has a wonderful nose, sadly the taste does not match that. The beer is refreshing and very easy to drink on a warm fall day.

Tried on tap at Rogue PDX airport bar as Mom Hefe, 28 Aug 2012. Served in a Rogue shaker with lemon (I didn't ask for one).

Lemon promptly removed from the side of the glass. Minimal white head. Lightly carbonated. Cloudy golden brown in color. Aroma is lemon, some clove. Starts similar to the aroma, wheat, clove, lemon (though not sure how much of the lemon is attributable to the actual lemon that was on the glass). Medium body, light ethanol. Maybe some ginger is noticeable through the middle. Overall, not bad but not anything I'd seek out again either.

Was expecting more of a hefe than a wit, I suppose Half-a-Weizen would've given that away.

I would call this an American Pale Wheat. This bears no resemblance to a Hefeweizen, though maybe that's the joke of "Half-e-Weizen." Nor does it have anything in common with the Wit style.

Fortunately, the rose flavor is very subtle, so it actually adds something to the anemic American Wheat style. The Sterling hops are skulking in the background, but they do add a tang that is sorely needed. Some slight woodsy and herbal aroma. If you say it's roses, I can use my imagination. Some decent tart wheat flavor, along with the light malt.

Sharp and quite drinkable beer. Nice bit of foam, and pleasantly sprizty in the mouth. A little more body than many light wheats. From the 22 oz bottle.

MoM Hefeweizen has a mug that only a mother could love. This faded beer is light in colour but completely muddied in complexion. Not exactly a sight to behold. Despite looking like lemon zest against the light, the beer has as much clarity as a London fog. Head balloons from the pour, but curiously leaves no markings on the glass.

The aroma smells wilted like tomato plants in a hot, dry summer sun; the malts spent and the hops shriveled. This bouquet has faint, disheveled hints of herbs, dried fruit peel, and marmalade, but it is, on the whole, rather stinky and borderline unpleasant. Oregon rose petals are apparently prettier to look at than they are to smell...

The first time I tried 'Half-E-Weizen', I guessed it a shandy (soda, but typically ginger ale, mixed with beer and usually some sort of citrus flavoring). That was a completely reasonable conclusion given the beer was brewed with both ginger and orange peel. This time 'round, however, it's more carbonated (to a fault) but not nearly as zestful.

And that's because the current 'MoM Hefeweizen' is brewed, not with ginger nor orange peel, but rose petals. The result, it must be said, is less invigorating and zestful. I rather liked the old recipe, which was brisk and vivacious, a gratifying summertime quencher. This, on the other hand, tastes like lime zest that's been mopped up from the brewhouse floor.

I'm not old enough to of tied an onion to my belt for fashion purposes, but I can say that MoM Hefeweizen - or Half-E-Weizen as we called it back in my day - used to be a much better beer. If nothing else, this is a lesson from the 'if ain't broke, don't fix it' school. If the good people at Rogue had any true reverence for MoM, they'd of left things as they were.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Amber/golden color with nice off white 2 finger head. Unfiltered with some residue. Smell is not too big, some fruit and a touch of honey. A little disappointing. Taste is a little bit more complex with cloves, grains, wheat, apricots and ginger. Some good citrus hit on the front which were nice Feel is a bit heavy on the carbonation. A tad dry and crispy. Overall- An intersting take on the style. Says Hefe on the bottle, but is classified as a witbier. Liked the apricot touch and the fruit blend. A little on the sweet side and would like to see more hop balance. Difficult to compare to others as this is a hybrid IMO. Would drink another one, but not fantastic. Interesting though-

A - hazy light golden, solid white head retained very well with some lacing left behind
S - raw grains, a grassy saaz hop type aroma, but not much else
T - crisp leafy hop flavour up front, toasty grains, fresh greens, and a light floral note
M - light and well carbonated, a pleasant dryness with a cracker type finish
O - its not a bad beer by any stretch, in fact its rather tasty, but tends more towards pale ale characteristic rather than witbier in my opinion

A- Light gold with a rather small, wispy head, perhaps the result of an overly cautious pour. Looks pretty clear, not particularly hazy or cloudy.

S- Definitely a distinct floral aroma, although I wouldn't be able to pick out roses. There's also an orange cream-like character that's pretty nice, although not particularly hefeweizen-like, which I guess is ok because this isn't listed as a hefeweizen on this site or Rogue's website, even though it says "hefeweizen" on the bottle. So, yeah.

T- There's some lightly tart wheat and honey sweetness upfront which provide a nice refreshing character. Floral notes come through on the finish and a light, herbal bitterness balances everything out. That creamy orange character returns on the aftertaste.

M- Medium-bodied, which I would consider perhaps a little too heavy for a beer like this, but with a nice level of carbonation.

Really not a bad wheat beer. The flavor is nice and it could be a decent quaffer on a hot day. I'd prefer it to be a little lighter in body and it's not overly complex, but it's a decent beer overall. Just don't go into it expecting a hefeweizen, even if the label tells you that's what you're about to get. Worth a try at least.

Bomber poured into a snifter style glass

Pours a hazy golden color with a monster white head. Theres also a bunch of little particles swimming around in this one. The taste and smell match. It is quite spicy and has a nice fruitiness to it. There is a bit of lemon zest as well as a tiny bit of dark fruits. A lot of wheat in here obviously, it really dominates the nose and palate as well as the overall feel of the beer. It is rather smooth, has a full body and really high carbonation. Not Rogues best offering in my opinion but not quite a disappointment.

"Mom Hefeweizen" Ale Brewed with Rose Petals. Purchased at a local Ralph's market. Served into a generic hefeweissbier glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Expectations are average given the brewery.

Not paired with food.

Served straight from the refrigerator and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a two finger head of beige colour, poor thickness, awful cream, and laughably bad retention (unmitigated by its rather low ABV). It retains less than twenty seconds. Colour is a cloudy semitransparent yellow. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Rather bland for the style.

Sm: Weak orange peel, clove, underwhelming barley, and water. The orange feel seems a bit artificial and syrupy. A mild to moderate strength aroma. No yeast or alcohol comes through.

T: Clove and light orange peel. There's an awkward competition between wheat and barley for control of the foundation, which results in an empty off-kilter body. Hints of lemon. The best note is the light ginger, which may be the only good choice in the whole flavour profile. Rather understated and boring all around. Bland. Lacks presence. No complexity or subtlety. Even the malts are restrained. A simple boring beer. No alcohol or yeast comes through.

Mf: Smooth and wet - too much so on both counts. Adequate carbonation. A bit too light on the palate. Not thick enough.

Dr: A failed attempt to combine two distinct styles. It ends up not working in either of them. I applaud experimentation, but this was a poor effort. I certainly wouldn't get it again. It's drinkability but low quality. Wouldn't even make a good session beer. A letdown from Rogue. Even the name is stupid.

Picked up a bottle of Mom because it sounded interesting. Poured in a tumbler pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazy, goldenrod coloring with a tall, fluffy, light, white head that settles quickly into only a trace of film. Aromas of toasted grains, with a hint of rose. The beer's flavors are toasted cereal initially, with a sharpness to it that makes it a bit hard to drink. Subtle buttery and floral highlights come through at the end of the palate, but just barely. The aftertaste is roasted, and a touch on the astringent side. The finish is quick, roasted, and slightly dry.

[Best served in a Weizen glass]

The pour was a hazy dark yellow with some light brown undertones and a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that reduced down to a small cap of foam, which produced some excellent streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a light bread malt, a mild citrus hop and a sweaty yeast with notes of honey, citrus (lemon), wheat, a hint of spice and a mild floral scent.

The taste had a lightly sweet wheat flavor with notes of honey and coriander early on and then flavor progressed into a much larger yeast taste with a hint of citrus, a touch of spiciness and a slight floral presence at the end. The flavor lasted and average duration after the swallow with a citrusy, yeasty, mildly spicy taste left to linger.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a good strong lively carbonation.

Overall a very tasty and refreshing yeasty brew that had a touch of spiciness and a nice floral twist, in fact this is what makes this beer different than other Hefeweizens...

A: Very nice amber color with a slight haze on the first glass, but the second of the 22 oz bomber was a bit cloudier but the same nice golden amber. Less then a fingers worth of head dissipates down to a very minimal amount of lacing.

S: Nice aromas of yeast and wheat with a mild hint of coriander. Very sweet smelling and the yeast and wheat become more distinct as the brew warms. Very enoyable.

T: Sweetness from the get go with some citrus and wheat flavors. Floral hoppyness as well but in all honesty, it seems like its watered down. All of the flavors are very weak with exception to the hoppy bitterness. It doesn't really seem like a hefe at all. Kinda bummed.

M: Moderate carbonation, crisp and clean after taste but this isn't what you'd expect from a hefe.

O: Very disappointed. Everything was bland and tasted weak and watered down. Dunno if I just got a lemon with this bottle; i'll prob try another one and would def love to try it on tap to compare.

Just had to try this one on Mother's Day. Wheaty aroma has a strong yeasty overtone - it smells very much like a packet of brewer's yeast. (No surprise there, eh?) Pours a clear solar yellow with a typical white head. Flavor is wheaty with just a whisper of lemon and a whisper of grass. Smooth texture has average body and just a little fizz. I've had better, but this is palatable. Happy Mother's Day!

Rogue MoM Hefeweizen, Ale Brewed with Rose Petals. Almost completely emptied into a weizen glass. By the way, I was discouraged to find out that this classifies as a witbier.

Orange body with haze from swirled yeast. Poured it pretty full, so the head couldn’t boast much. But, it’s laying out in a quarter-inch layer, pretty much white in color. 4.0

Okay, I get that it’s not a hefeweizen from the nose. Light wheaty malts with a floral hop quality, or so I wanted to say until I remember the rose petals. A smidge of light spice, but this is all about the clean wheat malts and their quality in the nose. Other than that, not much else going on. 3.5

Definitely not a hefeweizen. No fruity yeast. No estery qualities. Just a clean wheat beer with that interesting hint of rosewater. I must say, however un-intriguing this beer style is for me, that there is not much of anything going on. The finish is bland, just leftover wheat tang. Somebody, plop anything in this beer. Anything! A lemon wedge, an orange slice, cinnamon stick, a plum, a handful of berries, shot of Jager?? Oh man, I’m sorry. A labor to convince my taste buds that there is enough going on to continue consuming twenty-two ounces of an alcoholic beverage when I have so much good stuff in the fridge and in the cellar. Even my girlfriend won’t bite on this one. She’s too consumed on Blue Moon with an orange. 2.5

Body is light-medium; carb is… oh c’mon! It’s a witbier! It’d be easier to drink if it tasted more peppery or fruity or strange. I’d rate this better if it was bitterly floral, with heavy doses of the rose petal character. I’m being harsh because I expected this to be a hefeweizen, first of all, and because I’d rather have a Hoegaarden. Okay, seriously, this is a tough bomber to finish. 2.0

Rogue MoM Hefeweizen with rose petals. Wish I would have left this 22-ouncer on the shelf. Could have saved $7.99, or spent $5.25 of that on the Hitachino Nest Weizen beer (which I thought was flagrantly overpriced, especially for an 11.2oz bottle that’s not even from the same continent as Germany). As a witbier, it’s unmemorable. If it was hoppier? A plus. If it was fruitier? A plus. If it was spicier? A plus. It’s none of these things. Oh well. I’ll choose WISELY next time. 3.0

A: Poured from a bottle to a weizen glass. Had a golden yellow color and a hazy texture. There was an inch of foamy head that last a fair amount of time. No lacing at all.

S: Some malt and wheat evident, but not much else in the aroma.

T: Tasted of malt, wheat, a slight floral quality (the rose petals I assume), and mild hops. Mainly this was a very thin flavor, with the malt dominating everything else.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a crisp, smooth finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: On the whole, this is a very average beer that's easily forgotten.

ST: 750ml poured into a hefe glass.

A: Hazy and dark gold with a half-a-finger white head. The head settles to a ring within thirty seconds.

S: Orange, slight rose, and bread.

T: Lots of dry citrus upfront along with a very floral flavor. There is some clove and a touch of sweetness which is quickly taken over by a bitter, green flavor. The finish lingers.

M: Medium and dry.

O: Though Mom Hefeweizen is considered an alias to this beer, I am not sure they are exactly the same. Mom is brewed with rose petals. I have a bad habit of wanting to try any beers that are brewed with unusual ingredients ("Rose petals? Sure."). Some of those odd ingredients work surprisingly well; some do not succeed in creating a good beer.

The rose petals leave a faint trace of roses in the aroma of this beer. They add a floral element to the hefe. They do not, however, add anything exceptional to the flavor profile. The finish becomes too bitter, and it is not a clean finish. For the cost, there are simply too many other good hefeweizens to try.

This beer DOES CHANGE. I was given one by a friend that is brewed with GINGER instead of ROSE PETALS. They need to open the category since this beer is not always the same. Here is my review of Mom with ginger:
ST: 22oz bomber poured into a weizen glass.

A: Orange to light gold with quick carbonation and a thin, white head. There is a slight haze, but the beer is surprisingly clear.

S: Wheat, citrus, orange, coriander, and a hint of ginger.

T: Typical wheat, citrus, and hint of banana are helped out by a refreshing zip of spicy ginger that shows in the opening and the end.

M: Medium

O: Carbonation keeps this beer from cloying, and the ginger is a nice addition. The finish has a slight bitter edge that keeps the beer from sweetness. It is enjoyable to drink.

Different batch than what's posted here on the site, this one is with rose petals instead of the ginger and coriander. Seems different.

Semi hazy gold color with massive fluffy white head. Good lacing. Weak nose of pale malt and a faint floral aroma. Head does not want to die.

Extremely light and crisp. Kind of bland though. Touch of wheat, faint yeast bite but mostly very very clean. Faint floral flavor. Short concise and below par unfortunately. Refreshing at least.

If a label could sell a bottle of beer, then this one did it. My wife had to get a Mom Heff bomber that she split with me.

A: opaque, orange/yellow with an off-white 2 finger head. Good retention, decent lacing.

S: citrus, honey, rose petals, floral, wheat, a touch of ginger.

T: Follows nose with a citrus/rose petal/wheat mix that really didn't have much substance. Didn't catch any hops. Light coriander and malt presense.

M: medium with low carbonation. Light bodied.

O: really didn't impress me. Mom should beef up her carbonation and forget about the rose petals. Too light for my taste (and my wife's).
