4.21/5  rDev +13.2%

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.

Can courtesy of maximum12, thanks again!

Pours a bubbly hazy gold color with a nice head.

Aromas are of clove, banana, esters, and honey.

Taste is light and sweet up front. Creamy, with some banana and honey. Finish is crisp with some mineral snappiness. Pretty tasty, but a bit one note and mostly just sweet.

Mouthfeel is smooth, with nice body, and good carbonation.

Overall, a decent hefe, but it's a bit too sweet to me.

A hefeweizen in a can? Well not really as I think it is closer to a kristalweizen. Pours golden with just a bit of haze. Not much of a head forms but what does show up sticks around for awhile. Nice amount of lacing is left down the glass. Looks very actively carbonated.

Nice yeast aroma of banana, cloves, and bubblegum. The wheat malt smells good as well. Not picking up any rose hips however.

Starts off with a good weizen flavor with a nice wheat flavor with good yeast compliments. But things go wrong with the honey. Honey does not belong in a weizen. Destroys the finish of the beer with a bland sweetness. Again I do not get the rose hips.

For something that appears to be very active, it sure lies flat on the tongue. Bigger than a lot of wheat ales.

They had a good weizen beer going, and then they guild the lily and ruin the experience. Would of been much better being just a straight forward beer.

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a Surly tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a very hazy yellowish gold with a lot of rising bubbles. About one finger of white head which fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: A sweet and fruity wheat driven aroma with some spice. Lots of wheat, pale malt, and yeast upfront with good hints of banana, clove, apple, bubblegum, and pear along with some grains, straw, and cracker. Also some citrus hints of orange and lemon zest. Hints of white pepper spicing and some sweet honey hints. Not really any hops coming through. A nice wheat ale aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma, a yeasty, sweet, and fruity wheat driven taste. Wheat and pale malt upfront with notes of yeast, grains, straw, and cracker along with a taste of banana, bubblegum, clove, apple, and pear. A little citrus taste of orange and lemon zest. Light white pepper presence. Sweet notes of honey. No hops are really detectable. A nice light and yeasty wheat ale taste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Very crisp, clean, and very smooth.

Overall: A decent take on a wheat beer. Light, zesty, and refreshing. A good summer brew.

Not sure why this is entered as a berliner weiss. It's a hefe. A bigger, sweeter hefe....fuller bodied for the style...nice banana and clove impression leaning more toward the banana....the honey seems to add a sweetness to the banana impression...in the end it just doesn't blow me away as it should with these components....not sure why....it's definitely good but not in my elite hefe territory...

4.16/5  rDev +11.8%

Appearance: Hazy yellow-gold, ok head.

Smell: Bananas, yeasty, clove.

Taste: Moderately sweet, bananas, bready-yeasty, touch of lemon.

Overall: Not a Berliner Weiss at all, instead it is a very good Hefeweizen. I really enjoy hefes that can bring banana flavors out to the forefront and this one delivers just that. Good stuff.

Label describes it as a "Bavarian-Style Weissbier brewed with rose hips and honey"

A - A hazy body of light yellow-orange sits beneath a finger or two of thick white head, a good half a finger lingers for quite a while. Lacing is ample.

S - Belgian yeast aromas are prominent, the nose is very similar to that of another Lucette beer, Double Dawn. Beyond that, some fruity esters linger around with no hops detectable.

T - Tastes somewhere between a weissbier and a belgian pale ale with plenty of fruity ester notes to go around. I don't know what a rose hip tastes like, but I can assume it lends to the fruity and vaguely floral flavor present.

M - The body on this beer is delectable - very smooth, rich and creamy. Easy to drink.

O - A relatively unoffensive brew that still maintains its integrity by being loaded with flavor. Will buy again, and am glad to see Lucette continue to can some great beer.
