i didn’t know i would fall in love with flying dog this much when i bought the sampler pack tonight for our FRANKENSTEIN book club meeting - but i did, and i have. in-heat wheat glistens like sedimentary river water in a biology class test tube. grab the microscope, kids, there’s all kinds of swirling sifts of citrus and banana and coriander and yeasty hot spots spritzing about the aroma bed of this sample. the flavor confirms the aroma - full on humungous hefe-ness, scratched on the belly by mellow washes of wheat and grain. this is a good beer. a perfect beer to finish out this showing of RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. nothing screams zombies like a lively citrus wheat!

Has more flavor than almost any other hefeweizen that I’ve had. Flying Dog beers are impressing me (and I’ve only tried two so far).

I’m not a huge fan of hefeweizens but this has to be the best one I have tried in a very long time it’s smooth to me and not very bitter

Bottled @ Just Beer Assocaiton. Toujours fan des Weizenbier, celle ci est plutôt bonne pour une non-allemande

I found this to be quite a pleasant hefe. Great hazy yellow color, almost looked thick with yeast. Banana and citrus tastes on the tongue. Very refreshing on a hot day. Maybe a bit too sweet, as others have noted, but i thought it was a good one overall.

Damn this is some good beer. When you can find it on tap, you can drink the hell out of it without puking!

Hefe’s are my favorite style of beer out there. This one is most likely one of the best American examples you can get your hands on in South Carolina. Outstanding flavor.

I tried this beer on a whim a few years ago based on little more than its name and twisted label. To my surprise, I was instantly enamoured. This beer has the perfect blend of taste and grittiness that I have come to expect from a really good hefe. Since my initial experience I have found myself having regular cravings for it, and have on several occasions driven long distances just to track it down. This beer hants my soul.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2009 Ah... that stinky wheat beer aroma I love so much. Sweet smell of sour grain and fruit with a bit of hops. Unique flavor, very sweet and fruity just like it smells. Its not bad but its no weizen.

wow. i usually dont like the stuff that Flying Dog has come out with, so i approached this one with a good bit of trepidation. boy, they make some crappy stuff, but this beer was a pleasant surprise. pours dark gold with some retaining lacy head. smell is strong of breadiness and citrus, some grassyness. taste at first is fairly clean without the overt hoppiness of most of their brews. light and lemony. then after a few seconds on the palette, suddenly a wave of spice and fruit hits your taste buds. not sure if was a random thing or what, but it was quite impressive. not a normal hefe, but an interesting beer nonetheless.
