Small white head that flattens right out. Hazy gold/white hued color. Yeasty, fruity nose. Light body, sorta thin. Yeasty flavors, light bananna esters., citrusy notes also. Finish is dry, thin.

12 oz. bottle. A good wheat beer. The color is canary/urine yellow (the urine color you get after taking a Centrum vitamin). Not much head. The odor is of citrus, floral, yeast, and spice. The first sip is medium bodied, with hints of lemon, orance, coriander, and slight honey. The finish is smooth, with a tartness. I like Flying Dog beers. This is a middle-of-the-road effort.

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy yellow, no head. banana, clove and yeast aroma. Fruity, sweet, slightly watery, mildly hoppy finish. Maybe a Belgian/American hybrid?

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
