The beer pours a dark yellow golden in color. There is a half to three-quarter inch of pure white foam that dissipates fairly quickly. The aroma is classic hefe, bread dough, banana, herbal, yeast. The taste mostly follows the aromas, the honey adds a noticeable sweetness, but the beer never becomes sweet. Rather, it finishes dry, with a light bitterness and astringent fruitiness, I’m guessing this is the rose hips making themselves known. The beer drinks easy and is crisply and refreshingly carbonated. This is an interesting beer, the flavors of a classic German hefe, veering to sweet from the honey, but immediately cut down by the rose hips, all with a body like an American lager.
