2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours out a hazy gold colour with a quickly receeding bubbly white head. Scent is pretty much strickly malted wheat. Taste is light bodied, if slightly abrasive, and has grassy notes. Definite malted wheat and an unfortunate ester funk.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice wheat with lots of wheat flavors and smooth mouth feel. Lots of wheat which stayed on the bottom of the glass when poured. Average lighter wheat style aroma with a hazy golden color.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with a quick settling head. Hazy golen color. Smells of corriander and spice. Tastes similar to the smell. I guess I have soft spot for this taste.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours with a rich golden color, but the head and lacing on this are among the weakest Iíve seen within the beer style. Almost no carbonation makes me wonder if I did not get a bad batch. It comes with a pretty focused lemon smell, which overpowers a lot of the other orders. Taste is much like the nose; a serious lemon focus dominates.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is banana and very mild yeast. Taste is not much different, although I do detect some fruit (pear, apple) and citrus (lemon). Not much spiciness, which is one of the things I like most about hefes. Also, yeast is not strong enough to make much of an impression. Not bad, but not exciting either.

Cloudy yellow colored beer. I half expected some red tones given the name. I was suprised by itís hint of fruit flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Seriously out-of-date bottle - by more than 2 years - and given that hefes arenít reknowned for their ability to age gracefully my expectations were zero (will re-rate when I try a fresh one). Flying Dog must use an excellent yeast strain, because this bottle has somehow conditioned over time into very drinkable, very malty ale thatís far closer to a Belgian blonde than a hefeweizen. The banana has long disappeared but there is instead loads of bread, fruit-cake, spice, and sweet soy sauce (!!). Quite sweet, but mellow and earthy enough that it isnít cloying. Full body. The consensus in the household is that this expired hefe is a winner - glad this 6-pack wonít go to waste.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Pours cloudy golden with a nose of malty wheat. Flavor is good, typically I donít like Hefeís, but this one is good. Why do I taste hot dogs? Nonetheless, itís good, but the IPA is the best in the 12 pack mix.
