2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden color and no head, sporadic carbonation. Dusty, husky aroma with sweet malt and citrus overtones. The flavor has an amplified version of the aroma's husky astringency with a metallic finish. Not good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flying Dog sampler pack... bottle. Murky golden color. Aroma is unexciting and bland. Banana is somewhat evident in taste and becomes predominant as it warms. I didn't find it sour at all... it had a crisp aftertaste. Overall, decent. There are some other heavy-hitters that make 10x better hefe's than this though...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!
