This pours light orange, with a big-bubble head which dissipates fairly quickly, but leaves tufts of fluffy foam around the edge. Little to no laciing occurs. If you prefer clear beers, be careful with the pour and the yeast can remain in the bottle. if you prefer cloudy beers, with more of the yeast flavor (as I do), you can leave an ounce in the bottle after the pour, swirl the bottom for a bit, and get all the good stuff that was stuck to the bottom. So, my pour was cloudy.
I smelled some odd spice I cannot identify. Almost a citrusy vanilla flavor. Not too sure, but it was not overpowering.
The mouthfeel is creamy, but dissipates and becomes thin soon. It is okay.
I do like the taste of this, bread comes to mind, and maybe pete and some grass. Surprisingly, I didn't find much citrus in this.
It has a summer-field finish. Clean. Somewhat refreshing, almost oily though.
I think it has a bit more body and flavor than what I would expect from a "normal" wheat beer. I actually prefer this flying dog over a true imported wheat.
The nice thing about this is it does NOT leave any nasty aftertaste. It's mellow flavors attract, calling for another, making what I think would be a good session beer.
If you are looking for different wheat flavors, something non-standard, i'd give this a try.
