LIght golden colour fast to disapate white head. Sour wheat flavour. Dry mouth feel. Sourness predominant. Sour aroma. Sour tang. It's like the dog went for a walk and didn't come home.. slightly vingery as Cathy has pointed out to me.

This is considered a Hefeweizen? This is just dull and plain, no real flavor to speak of at all. Usually I like Flying Dog, but this one is the exception.

Bottle:coolartwork as usual from this brewery. I don't like Heffe. This didn't discern itself in any way from the other heffes.

Bottle. Cloudy and orange in appearance. Very fruity aroma. Taste is of banana. Has a little sour wheatyness. Nice sweet fruit aftertaste. For the price of this beer it was very good.

i normally don't like this style of beer much, but this one is pretty good. from the nice cloudy orangy appearance to the light spicyness of it.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2007 Had this bottled in St. Charles, Illinois. Much sourer than most wheat beers, which was distracting. Not particularly good.
Rerate. Lots of banana, orange, clove and allspice. Spicy. This is pretty good.

Nice banana and clove esters compliment this german hefe. I'm so excited they didn't go for an american wheat. Finishes lightly malty with a slight citrus aftertaste. Not bad!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not a bad wheat beer. Hoppy, bitter, and wheat flavor. Finishes light, crisp, and clean.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(draught) Hazy, very cloudy yellow; no head. Very subdued clove. Very little banana ester. Banana flavour extremely evident in the taste, to the extent of being exclusive. Underlying taste very neutral. Rather thinnish, but, once more, served 100x to bl... cold. Warming up it gets a bit better. Rather weak try for a wheat.

I am just going to come out and say this. This beer sucked. One of the most uninventive hefes I have ever had. Over the top with the yeasty spiciness, and way too citrusy, to the point of just sour face. I like what gotebo said.
