This is one of the better Flying Dog brews I have tried from the bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden-straw color with a very light lace. Aromas of light hopping and banana yeast great the second sense. The flavor is lighter and a bit more watery than the aroma would suggest and the carbonation is a bit too high, but the beer finishes clean and is quite refreshing. an OK brew.

Fruity aroma, honey-colored. This was a little too fruity sweet for my taste (citrus, banana) but it had a nice smoothness. I am not a big fan of German Wheats but this would be a decent summer drink.

From the reviews here, this beer seems to be variable, all I could taste or smell was bananas...

Very cloudy at the top 2 inches of the glass, haze trails inside. Brownish yellow with a head that's gone in 30 seconds. Very banana aroma with a touch of cinnamon. Pretty mouth coating, mostly banana ester without any counter balance, a little cloying in the finish. OK flavor to me, a little heavy in impression (one of the few times I could use a little more carbonation) to be a real quencher of a brew. Ordinary but maybe the best Flying Dog out of a bottle that I've had.

3.55/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Hazy yellow hue, topped by a porcelain -white head that settles disappointingly quickly into a thin, but tight layer. Clove esters & wheat tartness in aroma; banana esters are completelly absent, but subtle bubblegum is discernible. The clove notes persist into the flavor and are accompanied by a light residual malt sweetness due to the low hop bitterness and a pleasant tart and lightly grainy wheat flavor. Finishes w/ a quickly fading sweetness and banana esters upfront, but is dry and clean overall. In - heat Wheat is a strange brew and seems to be a true hybrid of the typically mundane American wheat & German Hefeweizen. Although a mutt of a beer it's certainly above average for an American wheat. Drink it as it is-- it's very quaffable!

In Heat Wheat: Cloudy, bottle conditioned beer, with a pale golden color. The head disappeared very quickly, and left nothing as far as lace. Aroma is a bit off for a Weiss beer, smells a little like Windex. This is as fizzy a Weiss beer as I’ve ever had, or want to have. After the carbonation is gone, the taste is not bad, although not at all as a Weiss should taste.

This beer poured out a nice light golden color. Formed a light head that didn't hold and left no lace. A bit cloudy. Had a aroma of citrus and bananna. The finish was pretty good for this style. I am not a big follower of this style, but it was a nice change of pace on a warm summer day.

A local grocery store sells the flying dogs in singles. So I picked up a couple more. Pours the expected cloudy yellow hefe color, with a nice thick fluffy head. Head quickly turned fizzy and left but very nice staying power. Lots of citrus smells, I think I picked up some bananas. Nice tasty, very refreshing hefe, all the qualities needed. Just misses out on being really good by the thinness and lack of doughy yeasty flavor I look for in a hefeweiss. Very good for the summers.

Hefeweizens are not may favourite style of beer but I liked this oone alot more than I thought I was going to. It poured an almost neon yellow full of chill haze with no head. The tasted was a very light biscuit and a very very faint bannana.

Sampled: On tap, in 13 oz. mug. Very cloudy, with only a little head.

Aroma: Typical German style Hefeweiss aromas, but subdued. One of the thickest Hefes I've ever had - the beer had body and a half. (note: according to other bar patrons, the massive body thinned out a bit as the keg emptied, so maybe I was just lucky...) Flavor-wise, had some of the usual German hefe esters, albeit a touch reserved, with a very thirst-quenching wheaty/lemony (?) finish somewhere between a German and American wheat. This would be a very, very good poolside beer, as long as your Dobie doesn't read the label...

There was no head on my pint, but it may have taken a little while to get from tap to table for all I know. Nice hazy yellow like lemonade that's a little off. Nice grassy, citrusy notes, but I didn't catch much, if any, of the estery flavors like what comes out really strong in beers like Scheider Weiss. The mouthfeel was nice for a wheat beer - a little fuller and thicker than some and a nice smoothness. Good beer, but not spectacular.

I am pretty sure I like this hefe, but my thoughts vary from sip to sip. A bipolar brew. One sip is fruity and refreshing, the next is musty and nearly rank. Fortunately, it is mostly the former.

Pours a hazy pale gold. Heavy sediment load, with large particles floating around. There is some musty yeastiness on the nose, with some clove as well.

Taste contains alot of citrus and clove. Bready yeast too. There is a (occasional) faint steamed vegetable taste in the finish. I didn't get this every time, but enough to make it lose some points. I must reinforce that, usually, this bier was quite tasty and enjoyable.

Nice sparkling mouthfeel. Carbonation levels are right on. Spritzy without being annoying. Nice and crisp, just how I like these type of biers.

Even with it's problems, this is a pretty decent one. Maybe a fresher batch would be void of the off-flavors. Even so, there are enough positives here for an enjoyable beverage

12oz. bottle. Yeasty cloudiness after the standard pour-swirl-pour. Nice off white head that quickly dissipated. Doughy, banana, clove aroma. Flavors are banana, clove, lemon with slight hop bitterness which intermesh nicely. I'm ususally a skeptic when it comes to domestic Hefes and I haven't been impressed with Flying Dog's other beers, but this is a good one.

Very tasty hefe. Wheaty yeast flavor is quite prominent, but was quite fresh and pleasant. Could not quite put my finger on the phenols, not banana or clove, but close. Seemed very traditional in the German wheat style.
