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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Reddish-amber colour, solid ring of white head, decent retention and a nice amount of lace. Smell is quite hoppy, some citrus and a bit of pine, malt is a bit biscuity and toasted, wheaty as well as it opened up. Taste is hoppy with nice toasted grain flavours, wheat and citrus, some earthy notes come across as well, citrusy aftertaste. Medium carbonation and body, decent feel, carbonation a bit too prickly. A nice easy drinking beer that seems to work pretty well, something I would revisit gladly.

A: Light copper/orange colour. High carbonation visible. 1 inch frothy head that has a lot of retention. Beer is very clear.

S: Loads of bread, some caramel. Hints of grass and citrus present.

T: Again, loads of bread, hint of wet grass and some citrus. There are hints of caramel or more like a french toast. Some wheat.

M: A bit thin and carbonation a bit lower then expected. Good bitter and dry finish and head stays throughout the drink.

O: A great beer. Love the flavours but would like a bit more body.

ST - 355 ml bottle.

A - A golden amber, little head, medium carbonated.

S - A very nice floral and citrus smell.

T - This has a nice hop bill. It hit with a hop combo right away, low caramel malt, aftertaste goes away quick. This is hard to described as it is billed an 'american krystal wheat', it reminds me very much of Great Lakes Miami Weiss.

M - Very light mouth feel. Hops rush over the tongue, but it nicely balanced.

O: I enjoyed this beer, I would defiantly buy it again.

On tap at Volo, tap takeover. More IPA than the wheat advertised, although the latter does bulk up and smooth out the mouthfeel. A decent bitterness, a good summer beer,Mild amber colour and a small significant head. Worth a try.
i had it again at Get Well pub and it was a clean drinkable product, prickly carbonation.Not so bitter, a decent American amber.

355 mL bottle taken from a six-pack picked up at the LCBO; bottled Sept. 24 2013 and listed at an even 5%. I've tried this beer on multiple occasions in the past, but this is the first opportunity I've had to sit down and review it. Served well-chilled.

Pours a foggy golden-amber colour, topped with one finger of frothy, off-white head that slowly dies down over a period of minutes. Eventually, a soapy cap and collar are all that remains at the surface, with a narrow band of lacing left to adhere to the glass. The aroma is approachable but straightforward - bready malts, caramel, orange citrus, and some grassy, earthy hops, with a touch of banana becoming detectable as the liquid warms. Not bad at all.

This is a nice, light, highly drinkable ale, though its construction is highly unimaginative compared to most FM offerings. Bready, biscuity pale malts and caramel sweetness comprise the backbone, but remain deftly balanced with the mild citrus and light, leafy earthiness of the hops. Fairly dry aftertaste, with some weak bitterness that does not linger at all. Light-bodied and quite fizzy - in fact, a little overcarbonated for my tastes - but all-in-all this is a very quaffable American-style wheat ale that tastes pretty good and goes down smoothly.

Final Grade: 3.74, a B. Stereo Vision is far from the most creative beer in the Flying Monkeys portfolio, which is a little disappointing given how much they play up the 'unique hybrid of multiple beer styles' angle on the packaging. That being said, it's still a serviceable wheat ale that has grown on me for some strange reason - I've bought this before and will likely do so again. Worth a try if you're in the market for a sessionable pale ale with a less-aggressive hop bill than your average APA.

355ml single bottle. Another label that looks like one would require 3D glasses to fully appreciate it.

This beer pours a hazy medium golden amber hue, with one skinny finger of weakly foamy, mostly bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some random sea spray lace around the glass as it quickly fades away.

It smells of gritty, grainy wheat malt, some chalky banana chips, innocuous muddled citrus, somewhat acrid yeast, and faint earthy, musty hops. The taste is a generally agreeable blend of barley and wheat malt - a heady biscuity breadiness, edgy grainy wheat stalks - a skulking yeastiness, dry banana esters, mild orange-tinted perfume notes, and a softly bitter grassy, leafy hoppiness.

The bubbles are just peppy enough to carry this thing through, the body medium-light in weight, and actually fairly smooth, the graininess doing us all a solid here. It finishes rather dry, the wheat, yeast, and hops all minutely contributing, though their collective pull is enough to seal this one's fate.

While hardly in the same bravado-heavy league as most of this brewery's more prominent offerings, I think that should be duly taken into consideration here. What other Canadian made (if sadly misnamed) 'Kristall wheat ales' can you name? Right, Grasshopper - and Stereovision stomps the holy green guts out of that venerable Prairie staple. So, grain of salt sucked back, and I'm just a bit put off that I got this just as snow is being predicted for the coming weekend.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: It has a nice semi-cloudy burnt golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves nice lacing.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some citrus, grassy/earthy hops, some bready notes and sweet caramelly malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours a crystal clear copper colour with an amber hue, solid finger of head with decent retention and some nice sheeting lacing.

S - Scent is musty, grassy moss, candied sugar, hints of fruity yeast, and a caramel malt comes through on the finish.

T - The earthy hop notes come through alongside grassy wheat flavours, a muddled citrus flavour lingers alongside a bready caramel malt.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and surprisingly dry on the finish.

O - A tasty brew and a unique style. The flavour profile is unique and is certainly growing on me. I could easily see myself consuming a few of these in a single sitting. An easy drinking summer ale whose hybrid style makes for a memorable experience.

355ml bottle poured into tulip 23/1/14

A clear golden yellow with plenty of bubbles and tiny suspended particles throughout, finger of foam falls quickly to a thin film that the bubbles sustain, polka dot bubbles deep down the glass

S floral citrus, wheaty cereal, some toffee, sweet orange peel and some faint hoppy spruce

T more cereal then the nose, earthy herbal notes are added to the mix, doesn't have the hops going for it like the smell

M a little thin and foamy, just a little grit with wheat and citrus on the finish

O decent version of the style, more hops then I expected but that works for me, simple brew well suited for a hot day

nothing to be ashamed of but nothing to really write home about either, not my favorite style but not a bad version of one

First bottling Nov 16th, 2012
Enjoyed Dec 7th, 2012

Cap wisdom "Generally avoid temptation, unless you can't resist it."

Crystal clear copper pour. Soapy half finger snow white head. Lacing is excellent.

A nice grass aroma followed by a light sweetness. These typical aromas make way for a citrus experience not like other beers of the style. Slight grapefruit with a little orange sweetness.

Quite light on the palate, good for sessioning. Grass notes, oranges and some sweet malts. Very crisp and clean tasting with a lingering aftertaste.

Light body, good carbonation.
