I found this to consist of all the tell-tale signs of a great hefe. Not my favorite style but, on a hot summer day this one hits the spot.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Average Hefeweizen tan, cloudy color.
Aroma: Little aroma when cold, slight bread dough/yeast aroma when warm.
Palate: Soft mouth-feel.
Flavor: Some fruit and spice flavors but more malty. As it warms some of the fruit and spice flavors begin to come through. Some bitter hops flavor, but not too much. A decent proportion to counter the malt flavor, yet the malt flavor still wins, which I prefer. I can see how the yeast and malt flavors could morph into a banana flavor which is common with this style but it doesn’t quite happen in this beer as much as I would like.
Overall: A good Hefe . American Hefes just don’t taste the same as German. However this is my favorite American Hefe to date.

On tap. Poured a lovely cloudy orange. Aroma was nothing special. Mouthfeel was typical of the style. The taste was a little bland. Overall a very average hefe-weizen.

Nice crisp wheat beer, but a little bitter for a hefeweizen. nice bitter finish.
Tried with a bite of cheese pizza and it was just about perfect.

This beer stinks. The beer just had no flavor and had a bad aftertaste. I think Flying Dog need to re-evaluate what they are trying to accomplish with this beer. I have 2 left in the fridge and as much as it pains me to throw beer away, I might have to with this beer. I will never buy it again.

Cloudy, golden colour and fruity aroma, but where's the hops? No beer taste at all--more like a watered down cider. A touch of dog piss would improve this beer.

Eh, not very impressive for the brand. I have liked other Flying Dog stuff but this wasnt the greatest. Not very cloudy, not much head, kinda sweet too.

Any beer called In-Heat Wheat by flying dog is bound to be exeptional. Beer pours the color of pineapple juice and honey, with a head lasting the duration of the beer. Flavors of lemongrass and subtle apple. Would be better with a little more spice.
