Was hanging with my brother, shopping in the local beer distributor that has a great selection of microbrew and German beers. As we were walking to the counter to pay for what we were holding, we passed a rack of Flying Dog beers. I had already picked out Paulaner Hefeweizen, my favorite beer, to turn my brother on to it, and we decided to pick up the In-Heat Wheat Hefeweizen as well. I've tried many hefeweizen's, many I like, many I don't particularly care for - this Flying Dog brand was surprisingly near the top of the heap. Not as good as Paulaner, or most of the other big 6 German brands, but the best American Hefeweizen I've tasted. I actually like the wacky label and all that, and that is what drew our eye to the six pack... however I might guess that most serious hefeweizen drinkers might skip over this thinking it wasn't a serious beer.
I will definitely be buying much more of this beer in the future... in fact, I'll probably pick some up today after work to drink with my Turkey at Thanksgiving tomorrow.

A - Deep golden in color and a little hazy. Off-white one finger head fades quickly.
S - Some banana, mostly cloves. Wheaty sweetness. Quite pleasant.
T - A lot more banana along with some other fruity esters. I get like a tart apple flavor. Finishes fairly dry with little to no after taste.
M - In and out, does not want to linger. Fairly high carbonation tickles the tongue.
O - I would say a fairly average hefe. It's good, very sessionable but not anything to write home about.

Long time no see; let's see how it goes under evaluation.
Hazy yellow orange color with short retention.
Aroma of vanilla, banana, pear, yeast, cloves, biscuit malt and wheat.
Refreshing and spiced flavor with notes of oranges, pepper, green apples, coriander, pears, lemon and nutmeg. Dry and a bit acid aftertaste.
Light to medium body with medium carbonation with tiny bubbles.
Interesting this felt to me more like a Witbier rather than a Hefeweizen. Regardless of classification, it is a decent and pleasant brew.
Serving type: on-tap
