12 ounce bottle into a 0.5 L Franziskaner weizen glass. Nice "Beer from around here" logo on the bottle cap. Produced a 2 finger off white head which reduced to a minimal foam cap with nice lacing. Very nice hazy pale straw color.

Aroma was zesty lemon with light yeast and wheat/malt. Taste opens up tangy to sourish lemon into banana then finishing with a nice breadiness and lightly bitter aftertaste.

Carbonation was zippy and nice, giving a light bodied feel but not drying at all. Made my mouth feel very wet and drooly!

Drinkability is good because this is an easy and pleasant brew to drink, not too sweet, just right. Very good though my personal preference is for a bigger yeasty wheat and malt center to the beer. Pleasantly surprised by this one.

Pint glass of Dog Days on tap at the brewery. 4.1% ABV

Hazy golden-amber with a weak but semi-durable head.

Feel: crisp and lovely carbonation; near medium body is not as light as average for style.

Aroma: fruity with wheat; appropriately spicy.

Flavorful and particularly fruity. Some banana but also hints of pear, apple and pineapple. Nice complexity.

O: A very good, fruity hefe.

Serving type: on-tap

Red Brick Dog Days Ale has a the thinnest, off-white head and an initially clear, golden, bubbly appearance, with clouds up, once the caked bottom contents are swished and poured in. There is no lacing to speak of. Aroma is strongly of banana and maybe some white wheat bread, and the flavor is also predominately banana, with some background coriander, white bread, lemon, and a shade of bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Red Brick Dog Days Ale finishes crisp, refreshing, and enjoyable. Really good stuff!

look: 2.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

From bottle bought at Knightly Spirits Kissimmee in August/2013.
A pale, clear pour with no lacing or head. Looks like apple juice within minutes.
Smell is nice, interesting. Floral hope notes, just the right amount....just a kiss.
Taste, mild malts balance the light floral hop notes. Slightly juicy. Refreshing.
Little aftertaste, nothing offensive.

Hard to tell it's even a Hefe. Just a basic craft with some interesting qualities, but nothing to write home about.
