Poured a clear, copper color with a fairly big off-white head.

Smells very malty. Almost like an amber lager. Sweet and grainy with a touch of wheat. No noticeable hops.

Very sweet malts. Lots of caramel flavor. A touch of lemongrass and some pepper., but crystal malt grains dominate. Some floral hops on the back end give it a little bitterness.


Crisp and light bodied. Very easy drinking.


Not sure I would classify this as a pale wheat ale, but I don't know that there is a better category for it either. A very enjoyable, and fairly unique beer.

I picked up a bottle of Flying Monkey's Stereovision last week for $1.99 at Boyne Country Provisions. This one caught my eye and I'm interested to see how it turns out. No visible bottling date. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a imperial pint glass.

A- The label looks nice, it's got a nice design and it's a little eye catching. It poured a pretty clear orange amber color that took on more of orange color when held to the light with finger and half worth of white head that died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left a little bit of spotty lacing behind. This is a pretty nice looking beer, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a lower amount of sweetness with some grainy pale malts being the first to show up along with some doughy yeast and some sweet malts also showing up. Up next comes a grassy and earthy hop aroma followed by a noticeable wheat aroma. This beer had a nice aroma that seemed to be true to style.

T- The taste seems to be very similar to the aroma and it starts off with a lower amount of medium sweetness with the grainy and pale malts still being the first to show up, but this time there's a little bit of a biscuit malt aspect with some doughy yeast still showing up in the background. Up next comes the hops which impart the same aspects that they did in the aroma, but this time they are lighter. On the finish there's hardly any bitterness with a grainy malt aftertaste. This is a nice tasting beer, it's a little bland, but it is true to style.

M- Smooth, just a little crisp, on the very light side of being medium bodied with a lighter amount of medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is decent, but it could use a little more carbonation.

Overall I thought this was a nice beer and a nice example of the style, it had pretty much all the aspects that I look for, but it still ended up being a little bland. This beer had ok drinkability, I think one is enough, anymore than that and I might get bored with it. What I like the most about this beer is the appearance and how true to style it is. What I like the least about this beer is the mouthfeel, it could use a little more carbonation. I might buy this beer again when in the mood for the style and while it's not a must try beer it's worth trying if you like the style. All in all this beer wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either, it came close to falling right in the middle. It's no a favorite from this brewery and it's just a little above average for the style. Nice job guys, it's nice to see a brewery tackle this style.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 9/3/2014. Pours lightly hazy deep golden color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, light banana, wheat, toasted biscuit, light caramel, herbal, floral, light pepper, light pine, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of fruity yeast, pale/bready malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, light banana, wheat, toasted biscuit, light caramel, herbal, floral, light pepper, light pine, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/spicy pepper bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, light banana, wheat, toasted biscuit, light caramel, light pepper/pine, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of fruity yeast, pale/bready malt, and earthy hop notes; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice hoppy pale wheat ale style. All around good balance and robustness of fruity yeast, pale/bready malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Good look. Thick head and a continuous volcano of carbonation.

Aroma of wheat hops.

Damn ... the taste of North American hops over wheat. Sour.

Medium feel.

Best of a bad style. I wish brewers would stop doing this ... ruining athe subtle flavours of a wheat ale with strong bitter hops.

Nice hoppy wheat ale. Nice roasty malt nose and taste. Complex, flavorful beer. Reminds me of Little Sumpin' from Lagunitas. Original beer that I will not hesitate to try again in the future.

APPEARANCE: hazy golden colour. off-white medium head with average retention. TASTE: floral hop flavour with moderate-low malt presence with balance towards the hops. moderate bitterness that lingers. PALATE: medium-light body with moderate carbonation and no astringency. OVERALL: a medium hoppy, light and refreshing amber.
