Draft at PreFunk. Very disappointing when compared to a real german weizen. Slight floral essence to what is a weak kristallweizen. I expected better from Rogue...

Poured from a bomber into a 1 oz. ale glass. Minimal head, about 1 to 1 1/2 fingers. Quick dissipation. Minimal lacing. Clear golden color. Very appealing taste but a tad off from a typical hefeweizen.

Poured into a small glass: color is gold, head is white with mostly fine bubbles and presents about 1/2 inch thick.

Smell is way clean and hardly any malt or bread character - now its not bad or off putting but it just doesnt have any clove/banana punch or even breadiness.

Taste is fairly clean, touch of banana, very understated though, malts are more noticeable with some biscuit and bread. Not a hefe like flavor but still good tasting, this is an american wheat beer all the way.

Mouthfeel is a little dry with some noticeable pronounced fullness in character and presence.

Overall this is a good beer, but it is not a hefe. I don't pick up any rose water notes.

This is not a hef....

The pour even aggressive creates va good inch or two a head, which is WAY off for the style. The body is nearly crystal clear...just way off for the style. This doesn't remotely look like a hef.

The nose has some banana and clove, but there is a bitter citrus hoppy like note that actually dominates.

The flavor is more the same. Bitter in a way like an ipa with some clove and banana.

The mouth feel is very clean and crisp which again is off the style. Still some weight here but not enough.

Honestly this is NOT a hef, don't even for a second assume that. It's not bad but the style is so far off that I have to take points off just for that. More points should go off for the price, about 6 bucks for a bomber of 4.8% non special beer.

Pass unless you love rose petals.

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

Appearance- Hazy yellow with almost no head to speak of.

Smell-Hay and citrus (orange mostly). None of the clove or banana smell you expect in a hefeweizen.

Taste- Follows the nose. I was hoping that there would be some of the banana and clove that I couldn't smell but it is just absent.

Mouthfeel- Thin and medium carbonation.

Not a bad beer, but not a great hefeweizen which is surprising given the brewery.

Gotta love a hefe with floral notes, most pungent noses I get out of beers.

Poured from a bomber into a wine glass.

LOOK: Hazy burnt yellow with a thin fizzy head.

SMELL: Not much of anything, except a distant fruity sweetness.

TASTE: Lemon, apple, orange, biscuity malt, pepper, clove, and rose.

FEEL: Amply carbonated, but very watery.

OVERALL: Well, this was a disappointment. I'm glad I received this as a freebie. Not worth paying money for.

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Main attraction here was a low ABV (list is full of big Stone brews). I guess the Stone`s folks are a bit out of there element here as the result is not up to their usual standard. I have used rose water in recipies in the past but, although I can taste a vague presence it seems that the fragrence is over powered by the other usual suspects in the Hefe file. Not every chef, no matter how great can pull off some of the more deicate paytry creations out there. This may be a case in point. I applaud the effort, but would not do the developers justice by lauding praise for effort alone. I`m glad I tried it...once.

22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottled dating. Very highly carbonated upon opening. Pours hazy deep golden color with a 2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, light banana, pepper, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt/honey, and herbal/earthy rose notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, light banana, pepper, wheat, bread, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, light banana, pepper, wheat, bread, light honey, and herbal/floral earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt/honey, and herbal/earthy rose flavors; with a good malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very solid witbier. All around good robustness and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt/honey, and herbal/earthy rose flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.
