Pours a slightly hazy golden straw with a creamy white head that fades quickly away.
Great aroma: banana, clove, bubblegum and hints of citrus
Tasty hefe with lots of banana and spice, a hint of citrus in the background and a nice bitter and refreshing finish.
Mouthfeel is medium and bubbly with a touch of creaminess.
Overall, a very good beer although I was slightly disappointed that this was a filtered hefe. That and the fast-fading head knocked down the appearance score.

Hazy yellow with a persistent head and a great deal of yeast residue lining the can. Strong fruity aroma. Taste starts out tart, hints at bananas and finishes spicy and bitter. Chewy for a wheat beer.

IMO, the brewer mischaracterizes this beer by calling it a Bavarian weissbeer. The style is much closer to a Belgian witbier. And it's a very good witbier.

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!

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.)

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.

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.
