Again, Flying Dog should stick to American beer styles. Let the Germans brew hefeweizen, they’re better at it.

Golde yellow cloudy. Foam that lasts a short time. Banana and apricot in the aroma. Sour fruit wth metalic aftertaste. Almost no hops. Watery. A bit of a disapointment

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2014 Pours a clear golden with a head that rapidly diminishes to nothing. Nose of clove against a light banana background. Light body and well carbonated. Nice clean taste of clove and hints of banana against a lemon zest punch. Crisp finish with a touch of clove and lemon lingering. This would be a great choice after mowing the grass in the heat.

Has that usual smell like most Flying Dogs. Probably the best beer I have had from Flying Dog, which isn’t saying much. I’m not a fair reviewer of the product because most of their stuff tastes the same to me. But give it a shot, why not.

Cloudy ochre colour, wit a tiny head that dissipated pretty fast. Some spices and citrus in the aroma. Light body, slightly bitter, some sourness as well. Prett sharp bitter finish, but doesn’t linger for long.

Not much smell. Looks appetiting with a nice color. The head retention is fast. Taste of banana from the yeast and a bit citrus. Very good carbonation level. Easy to drink. A nice summer beer.

Pours a very pale golden with quickly fading head that is just plain gone leaving no lacing. Aroma is surprisingly pleasant, with citrus, yeast and mild spice. Taste is wheat with a little clove and slight banana. Pretty middle of the road taste-wise. Palate is carbonated with medium body. Drinkable with a decent aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 12oz/355ml, from Eurospar Langnes Tromsø.
Hazy orange body. Tall head that soon disappears without a trace,
Moderate spicy scents, wheat, clove maybe.
Spicy taste, with yeast, citrus, and feels a little mealy, not bad.
A little thin body though. The aftertaste spicy bread bites, black syrupy malts, crispy bread, dried cheese, but not overwhelming.

Bottle poured into snifter. Not much head. Opaque orange honey color. Aroma is floral and citrus with lightly toasted hay. Sweet earthy tatse. Spritzy on the front side of the tongue, smooth finish. Overall just OK...
