This is an excellent German Stlye Wheat beer. If you close your eyes you might think you are in Munich. It has the classic "banana & clove" smell and taste. Excellent appearence, nice lasting head, and great aroma. Put your Lederhosen on and enjoy a cold one. Great job Flying Dog!!

Pours an opaque honey-golden with a thick, white, fine-bubbled head that sticks around for a while. Aroma is rich and wheaty with a definite citrus component. Flavor is rich and full, wheaty and malty. This wheat beer is pleasant, refreshing and smooth, and feels thick.

Very cloudy yellow-ish gold color like an overripe banana with a nice white head and decent carbonation. Fruity banana aroma and flavors dominate with a nice grainy wheat character underneath to finish it off and just the right amount of clove in the finish. Light to medium bodied, smooth, and refreshing.

A nice fruity American example of the Bavarian style and one of FD's better brews...

Served at fridge temperature in a traditional hefeweizen glass. Purchased at Bottle King, Hillsdale for $7.49 a sixer. A spring refresher on this humid May evening.

Batch #220FX08

Appearance- On the pour, this looks *everything* like a traditional German hefe... it's unfiltered and golden, totally cloudy with a nice three finger head. Unbelieveable wheaty on the eyes, with phantom draperies of soft, wispy malt inside. A trophy of a beer, literally glowing like an incandescent lamp. Sporadic patches of lacing.

Smell- For an American version of the style, this is extremely convincing as a German archetype. The bold banana, clove and bubblegum aspects of a hefeweizen leap out of the glass... it'a as appetizing as any good wheat beer I've sampled in recent memory.

Taste- Phenolic and bready, loaded with banana, wheat, and wonderful spicy clove... this dazzles the palate with a complex integration of delicious ingredients. The finish is especially nice where the wheat malt joins a mild, smooth hop bitterness that dries the mouth just perfectly.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability- Tingly on the intro, this immediately softens without losing interest... it smoothens even more and goes down in a slick, but still light-bodied way. This beer's real forte is the expressive, bold nose along with a remarkable balance on the palate. I have just enjoyed three of these to their fullest, a testament to my "5" rating of drinkability... a home run for Flying Dog.
