This is another example of American breweries doing European styles better than the Europeans.

This is an example of a wheat that is perfectly balanced. It may be a little heavier than the lighter Euros are, but that doesn't make it bad. The Euros are too light. It has a very yeasty and hoppy aste and an excellent smell. This is exactly what's missing from most others.

I will try to remember to make this my first choice of wheat beers.

3.01/5  rDev -14.5%
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.

3.73/5  rDev +6%
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.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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
