Half-E-Weizen

Recently arrived in GA (along with Dad’s Little Helper) as an addition to the Rogue line-up.
I was a little concerned about this beer because I thought that a Rogue Witbier would just be another style that they would add too many hops to, and in the process take the thing out of style and screw it up. There WAS a touch of extra and unnecessary hop bite in the finish, AND the aftertaste was way too soap like for my taste, but overall it was better than I expected, and it was a little truer to style than some of their brews.
Golden yellow, hazed pour which is definitely darker than many Wit’s and more Hefe like. Decent head and lace in the Tucher Weizen 0.5L.
Mild, malty pepper not in the nose – not much else.
Definite herbal and lemon notes up front that fade to exaggerate the metallic ending.
In the end a pretty tasty and nicer beer than I expected. Good job.
