Nice hoppy wheat ale. Nice roasty malt nose and taste. Complex, flavorful beer. Reminds me of Little Sumpin' from Lagunitas. Original beer that I will not hesitate to try again in the future.

Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 10A) AROMA: moderate hop aroma with floral and subtle grassy notes. low supporting malt aroma. APPEARANCE: hazy golden colour. off-white medium head with average retention. TASTE: floral hop flavour with moderate-low malt presence with balance towards the hops. moderate bitterness that lingers. PALATE: medium-light body with moderate carbonation and no astringency. OVERALL: a medium hoppy, light and refreshing amber.

Flying Monkeys Stereovision brewed by Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery with an ABV of 5.5% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a small white head.Flying Monkeys Stereovision is a Filtered brew you can see right though it. This is different from most wheat brews I had because it is filtered. The smell is rich with grains and some bitterness. The taste of this brew is different. It real smooth with a touch of bitterness at the end. It's almost like a light brew. The mouthfeel is nice with no bad aftertaste. This brew goes down nice with clean finish. Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery did a nice job with this brew. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out 5
I would buy this brew again.

Flying Monkeys Stereovision from Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery, my first of this style of brew. Poured from the bottle into a glass, the 1/16 or smaller finger thick head goes away rather hastily. Clear, golden straw body with decent lacing.

Smells like ever-so-slightly roasted malt. Certainly far from other wheat oriented brews I've experienced thus far. Not a light scent, but not robust; fairly neutral as the rating implies.

I taste malt or some kind of sweeter characteristic. Balancing hop bitterness is well masked, but its there somehow. I'm kind of thrown off-guard by this. I guess its alright. All in all, its a lighter taste.

Mouthfeel here is light and crisp. Quite refreshing, actually.

Overall a 3 for Flying Monkeys Stereovision from Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery. It was my first American dark wheat brew and will hopefully have introduced me to yet another style I'll enjoy. I may buy this again, we'll see.

Poured into a weizen/pils glass, a copperish light brown colour with a good white head and quite a lot of active carbonation, beer is very clear. Has good retention and lacing though.

S - crisp. Some grassy hops and graininess. Mild spices, some of the wheatiness comes in on the background with some bananas, but overall this is fairly bland and grainy.

T - steps ups a bit with some immediate fruitiness, pears and bananas, some more full malty aspects with a chewy banana aspect, strong wheaty body with creamy vanilla, lots of graininess still, tends more toward grassy notes on the finish. Finish is dry, a bit sour, and has some lingering noble hops.

M - Quite light, but with a distinct wheaty creaminess, quite a bit of stripping carbonation to attempt to balance that. Feels a bit muddled. Obviously it was intended to be a quenching refresher, it is a bit full for that, like chewing down on a lot of (underipe) bananas. Drinkable but not inspiring.

Overall, middle of the road, this could use some adjustment to tame the wheat and bring out some of the more complex hopped notes that are added and lurking below the surface. Mouthfeel is quite thick, but overall this is quite an enjoyable beer, a different take at least, and has some potential but this falls short.
