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.

Bottle from Harvest Market,
Pours a slightly hazy pale straw color with a huge frothy rocky white head that persists forever. Aromas of spicy wheat, and clove with hints of light fruit. The flavor follows the aroma quite well. Sweet honey like maltiness with a spicy edge to it. Clove with a hint of yeastiness and a touch of light fruit round out the flavor. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Nice brew, I enjoyed it, but it is missing something that the examples from Germany exude.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - buttery yellowish in color, carbonation was decent, with a quickly dying head Slightly cloudy. Seems to be lacking in just about all of the above.

S - I get zero banana or lemon. I smell bread with a hint of spice. Sort of dull.

T - The most important part of the brew is unfortunately the worst. The taste reminds me of a flat Bud or Miller Lite. After a few, and adding a lemon, I am getting more and more notes I did not get from the first. All in all, this one needs something. It is not bad, it just needs something to take it over the top.

M - Mouth feel was good for a Hefe. Plenty of summertime carbonation. Clean.

O - It is decent. I love Hefeweizen and was expecting to capture so much more. Is it my new Summer brew, hell no. Flying Dog, spice up the recipe...and watch it fly off the shelves.

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

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.
