3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled alc. 4.7% (BB 06/2010; BZ)
Deep hazy orange color, small off-white head. Yeasty aroma with banana and cardboard, light lemony and clove spicey note. Crisp carbonation. Quite sweet flavor. Banana, orange, yeast. Low bitterness. This is very close to German hefeweizens, usually American versions differ a lot. This doesn’t.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is a fairly clear golden orange color with a rather small white head.
S: Lots of clove and spice notes along with a ton of cardboard. Some sweet bread and wheat malt notes and a fair amount of banana and bubblegum. A bit of stale orange peel in the background.
T: Sort of bland with some clove and banana flavor. Sweet bread and wheat flavors with a hint of bubblegum on the finish. Citrus peel and yeast are also present.
M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Tastes okay, but it’s not something I would come back to.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale beige, opaque; very wheaty palate, lots of grapefruit, low phenols for the style; light body, sour, grapefruity finish. Different, and may not be to everyone’s taste, but I enjoyed its simple, citric, thirst-quenching properties.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I thought maybe Flying Dog could do the trick of making a good weizen that I could honestly enjoy! Too bad. Again a brewer failed to make it to the other side in my opinion. Just another weizen, I just don’t smell or taste anything new. Always malty, wheat, grains and a dull boring taste.
