3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. Bottle: Aroma is a bit herbal, with hints of coriander, nutmeg, allspice, and yeast. Poured a straw color with a medium, off-white head that lasted throughout. Very good lacing. Very cloudy. Very sparkling. Lots of particles. Flavor is a little bitter. Tastes of coriander, nutmeg, lemon, yeast, and orange. Light to medium body. Lively mouthfeel becomes a bit cream, coating the mouth. Lively carbonation. Medium length orange and coriander finish. Overall, almost a Hefe, but too orange for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle and served in my Hoegaarden tumbler: Pours a whiteish pale golden hue with a small but lasting head and left very good lace upon the glass. The aroma has notes of lemon and orange zest, coriander, baby grains, husky wheat, and a hint of classic wit yeast. There is some soapy vapours which kept the score down a notch however. The flavor is acidic and mildly tart with a equally light-handed bitterness and spicy finish. The wheat and yeast makes a play throughout the tasting. The mouth feel is spritzy and lively but a note of chalkiness did creep in upon the finish. Overall, a fine effort in the genre and worth another try or two.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours cloudy pale golden with a fully receding foamy off-white head. Aroma of orange peel and coriander with some citric esters and mild wheat. Taste is citric, lightly sweet and yeasty, with a tart finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively carbonation. Missing that special something, probably unmalted wheat. Drinkable but forgettable.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
My bottle (12oz), shared with tupalev. Pours a murky pale yellow with an average size diminishing bubbly white head -- interesting looking beer. Aroma: Geez, this smells pretty awful. I hate to say it but it smells like excrement and grain mixed in a spicy wheat beer. I know itís not just me because my co-rater thought the same thing, this must be an off bottle or something as there isnít one other rating mentioning this foul aroma. Flavourís much better, itís a little watery and bland but it tastes decent enough. Slightly spicy wheat, yeast, some faint hops and fruit. Average bodied. I dunno, I feel like Iím being somewhat generous with my rating but when I see all the other ratings it makes me wonder...If I get the opportunity Iíll have to try this again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy yellow body with a fluffy, pure white head. Citrus and floral aromas featuring bright lime and pepper coriander, orange citrus, and bread dough. Nice range of flavors as well. Well-balanced and nicely dialed in. Perhaps a little sweet and too soft in terms of acidity, but still refreshing and interesting. Flying Dog seems to have finally stepped up their overall quality to match the fancy marketing on the surface.
