I'm a fan of several Flying Dog beers, but unfortunately this isn't one of them. We got two bottles in a flying dog variety pack and both of them were very very "skunky" similar to when you buy imported hefeweizens here in the states and they haven't been handled properly. I didn't even finish the whole bottle. It was pretty horrid and that says something cuse i'm a big fan of hefes.

Appearance: light gold to bronze color slightly murky but deceptive to the naked eye
Smell: as indicated I could smell some banana and some light citrus in the aroma
Taste: Had a slight malty flavor and light bitterness from the hops, I had a hint of banana and citrus when it hit the back of my throat as well. I only had a light bitter aftertaste however it was very light and doesnt bother me for a hefe
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel was actually surprising I had little after taste and was easy for me to drink down compared to other hefes I have had. It was smooth and light.
Overall: Conclusion I find that this is a perfect summertime Hefe to drink when you want a light alcohol content with smooth wheat based hefe and will guarantee not to make you feel like you have a sour mouth or bad after taste like most all day drinking brews have. I recommend however if you drink this brew for a all day summertime type day pair it with some cheese like feta and some unsalted crackers to keep the flavor fresh in your mouth
*Recommended Brew for Summertime
