Very dissapointing hefeweizen. None of the qualities one would hope for - no citrus, no spice, no banana, hardly any wheat quality at all. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUL 1, 2002
Very yeasty and fruity aroma, some wheat, of course, too. Slight spices. Bright, opaque yellow golden color. Some carbonation and head, but a bit low for the style. Mouthfeel is acidic, flavor is a bit odd. There is some citrusiness, but not a lot of malty flavors, mostly fruity and yeasty flavors. This doesn’t lend great balance, unfortunately. Finish is tart, banana, a bit of clove. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side, uncharacteristic of hefes, especially bottle-conditioned ones. Um, I’m unfortunately going to have to not recommend this one, it doesn’t taste bad per se but there are many many better wheats out there. This beer is a bit confused.

Dusty orange with evident yeast. Unappetizing wet rag nose. Acidic faintly orange-with-yeast flavors. Very flat. I'm disappointed, my first bad Flying Dog beer. Maybe a bad bottle? thedm (6184) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2003
This brew poured a cmall head of quickly disappearing fine white bubbles and a hightly carbonated light yellow transparent body. very mild malt fruity aroma with a slightly fizzy initial mouthfeel that lingers for a while then ends in a mild hop flavor. It flavor is mildly hopped ywith notes of fruit bread and malt. Not a typical Hefe IMHO. TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2003
This is considered a Hefeweizen? This is just dull and plain, no real flavor to speak of at all. Usually I like Flying Dog, but this one is the exception.

Had this at a beer fest. Light and refreshing. Good for warm weather. However, there is not else to commend this. Fairly unspectacular as are most Flying Dog brews. Sickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Why can't Americans make a good wheat beer? What is it with wheat that makes a beer so tasteless, so wrong? Why oh Why oh Why oh Why? Bailz316 (256) - North Carolina, USA - APR 21, 2005
Pours a cloudy golden with small-medium white head. Wheat, bananas and cloves. Rather bland finish. Veeve (312) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - NOV 15, 2005
pours out of the bottle murky yet thin. has an orangish-yellow color. Almost looks like thin orange juice with the pulp included (what is making the murkiness) except with bubbles. like a darker orange momosa. Ok - you see what i’m getting at. had no head at all. just high bubbles at first then nothing. It smells strongly of wheat and then hints of citrus - grapefruit, orange, lemon and even mango. It tastes like a very dry grapefruit, grass, bubblegum and (to quote the guy before me) - "sugarless lemonade" (couldn’t put my finger on a specific taste but he helped me out). The mouthfeel is kind of watery and yet sort of buttery. you know that butter/sauce you put on lobster and cracked crab? it feels kind of like a watered-down version of that. overall its just ok. very carbonated. zombywoof (467) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 16, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2008 This beer has a lot of corn/grain notes that comes across as a little sour. A little hint of banana,cloves and citrus. A light body and slightly slick finish. A golden hazey appearance.
