2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ Spiesy’s gaff. The Flying Dog beers we had were all in attractive bottles, had decent aromas, but were really quite foul tasting. This one smelled like a veggie hot dog, complete with greasy fried onions and the doughy bread. I quite liked the smokey aroma, especially when the spicy wheat also came through, but the vague wishy washy flavours were quite nasty.

Hazed over, orange pour. Light head. White lacing. Smell is of malt and hops. Taste is a little sour. Taste of banana and spice. Not to refreshing.

Hazy orange, no head really. Malt aromas with a hint of wheat and citrus. Lots of citrus in the flavor. The hops are floral. Malts are light and the wheat is as well. Fairly smooth with a bite of bitter hops at the end.

Cloudy darker yellow. Thn head and sound of bubbles. Light and sweet aroma of yeast. Very light flavour with sweet delicate yeast notes. Not bad at room temperature either.

Good hefeweizen. Typical cloudy golden color with a medium white head. Suprising citrus aroma more than anything else. A good citrus and malty taste. Not bad.

My favorite of the Flying Dog line. A nice mild ale with an apparent coriander citrus taste. Tastes more like a whitbier in my opinion. Pretty tasty, reminded me alot of Hoegaarden, except lacking a bit.

On tap @ Flying Saucer - Reminded me a lot of a Bells Oberon, very murky and slightly hoppy, but a bit too much citrus and other fruit flavors for my likes. Pretty flat also.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy light golden yellow with a medium quickly diminishing white head. Aroma of banana, clove, wheat, light bread, honey and pepper. Medium light watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Weak, grassy flavor of apple, banana, clove, pepper and wheat with some hints of citrus. Decent, but uninspiring.
