4.2/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured into conic glass

A Orange/amber. Filtered and transparent. Inch and a half of thick white head. Lots of bubbles and carbonation. A damn fine looking brew.

S Bready. Toasted grains. Wheat. Barley. Some rye. Certainly hints of orange and lemon peel. Flowery (obviously the rose hips.)

T Crisp and peppery. Follows the scent. Grainy with a citrus kick. Honey (this becomes more pronounced as the brew warms.) Has a pretty decent malt backbone that adds a little more sweetener.

M For the style everything is pretty spot on. Smooth non-sticky malt. Crisp. Just a bit of burn as the ABV is higher than the usual weissebier.

O I really dig this beer. Easy drinker. The flavors meld really well. I think the rose hips do work here. Well put together brew. The best I've had from Lucette (the one that I buy consistently.)

4.04/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a hazy straw color. I swirled the last 1/8 of the can and definitely got a little yeasty goodness to cloud it up.

The aroma really took me here. Kind of like smelling freshly milled wheat as you're pouring it into your strike water. Just a fine wheat smell and I envy how prevalent it is. I'm not sure of previous reviews, but I'd like to believe I get a super fresh batch, here. A nice rose petal smell lingers in the background.

In the mouth it has persistent carbonation, but a definitely a bit less than you'd see in a traditional BHW. Creamy wheat and minerality on the front the of the mouth. In the finish a nice citrus hop kiss, with a firm malt presence. As it warms, I believe you can get a little residual floral character from the honey. The carbonation cleanses the palate, making this easy to slam.

In my opinion, this is a great beer. The fact that it's in 6-pack pint cans is the icing on the cake. Perfect combo= A can of Hips Don't Lie in one hand and a brat in the other. This will be on heavy rotation in my refrigerator for the next 4 months!

Served from the tap.

The beer was hazy and amber in colour.

The nose was light and sweet, like light honey. It smelled like a typical Hefeweizen, but with honey.

The beer tasted light and sweet, slightly like honey and like Belgian-yeast. It had a very clean taste.

Would I buy it again? Yes.

4.21/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

Hips Don't Lie pours a dark reddish-copper color with a small but lacing head. There is a nice earthy, sweet and almost smokey aroma. The tase has a nice creamy wheat backbone, rose hips noticeable, and a nice well mixing sweetness from the honey that lingers as the beer goes down. Great body, great feel, great flavors, love the lingering flavors. Overall a very nice complex and creamy Hefeweizen.
