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.

Pours cloudy with some nice sediment. The wheat, subtly sweet smell could be stronger but it’s nice. The flavor is bready and somewhat sweet - delicoius overall. Vir4030 (603) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Very thin head when poured, with a nice cloudy hefe look. It tastes pretty good, with a hint of banana flavor. Quite nice. southsideiron (5) - USA - APR 19, 2008 does not count
Never had a wheat beer before. This is definitely an acquired taste. Bought a six pack a week ago and finished the last three bottles after working in my garden all day. Poured a slightly cloudy coppery color with a nice aroma. The aftertaste took a little getting used to, I am partial to stouts and porters.
I may rerate this beer after trying another Hefeweizen. Worth a try! mkel07 (6218) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2009
355ml bottle. Honey coloured and clear with good carbonation and a small white head. Bubblegum, cinnamon and clove aromas bring a sweet joy to the nose. Flavoursome and fills the whole mouth and lingers long on the palate.

A- nice cloudy pale yellow body with white head. mediium retention.
S- nice citrus smell with spices and some yeast.
T- the citrus is very dominant with the spices in the background. some wheat and yeast can be tasted but its minimal.
P- medium/high carbonation and very light body. somewhat watery.
O- yes this is very drinkable. I like flying dog’s offerings. This isn’t the best wheat I’ve had but its still pretty good.

A - Hazy Yellow in color with about a finger of head which dissipated very quickly.
S - Not as much banana as expected but a great deal of wheat. Fairly pleasant.
T - Carbonation hits first, followed by citrus and a wheat/yeast flavor.
M - Very light and refreshing as expected from this beer.
D - Light and refreshing, but without much impact or character. Definitely a wheat beer but not the most interesting. Good summer drinker.

Bottle - from sampler pack. Very light golden color, cloudy. Esthery aroma. Really good hefeweizen. Actually tastes as it should unlike the majority of wheat beers made by US breweries. rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - APR 21, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a tall pilsener glass.
Appearance: The body has an orange yellow hue with a heavy haze. To top it off there is a tall, off white head of light foam. This light foam fades slowly makes some slick lacing on the way down the glass.
Smell: In the nose I get mostly bready yeast with a touch of spice and a slightly fruity banana note.
Taste/Palate: The flavor picks up on the nose with tasty semi sweet bready wheat and mild spicy clove like yeast. It also has just a light hint of banana as well as some mild spicy hop bitterness. This comes to the palate by way of a smooth medium body with medium carbonation.
Notes: Overall it’s a good American made German Hefeweizen. wlajwl (6952) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 15, 2011
Wheat grain and lemons in the aroma while the appearance is yellow-gold and clear. The flavor echoes the aroma with the wheat and lemon dominating, with a yeast edge to it. Overall a solid, if not spectacular hefe.
