Why can't Americans make a good wheat beer? What is it with wheat that makes a beer so tasteless, so wrong? Why oh Why oh Why oh Why?

This is the worst Flying Dog brew I have tasted. My only real comment is...bad. I will not be buying this again.

Looked like a wheat, smelled like a wheat, and tasted like a wheat. Unremarkable in any way, but everything I expected was there. A good effort; I would buy it again if it were cheap.

Cloudy yellow, no head. banana, clove and yeast aroma. Fruity, sweet, slightly watery, mildly hoppy finish. Maybe a Belgian/American hybrid?

Bottled. Golden yellow colour. Not your regular wheat beer as the malts are more prominent then you would normally expect. The result is a beer that’s smoother and more generous then a straight wheat beer. Nice beer.

Yes from the first wiff of this aroma you can tell it is going to be yeasty. The appearance is actualy too clear for a heffy but overall the apperance is just average. Nice off white head on a diminishing head, no lacing. Flavor is spicey, crisp but a little too watery for my taste. Not a bad beer just a little on the washed out and thin side. Refreshing.

Had this at a beer fest. Light and refreshing. Good for warm weather. However, there is not else to commend this. Fairly unspectacular as are most Flying Dog brews.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2008 (bottle) Hazy pale gold with white head. Aroma of clove and yeast. Flavor was wheat, clove, banana, some yeast. This is a re-rate - it seems my first try may have been a bad bottle, so I’m scoring it much higher this time.

It took a while to figure out what the distinct taste in this wheat ale is, but I think its apples. It almost has a cider taste to it with a tangy after taste.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Lame head, but cloudy and murky. A very disappointing wheat that's only 1/3 German, the rest seems American Wheat (very crisp and dry). Light banana/clove flavor, to its credit, but this Dog is tired and has no new tricks. Mild citrus notes, uncomplicated. Depressing.
