Whippet Wheat | Thirsty Dog Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the head's three fingers thick, with webbed lacing, and a hazed medium gold body.

I smell banana esters, clove, and bubblegum. Hard to mess up a hefe.

Tastes like a slightly boozy version of the smell. More of a trippel flavor IMO. Still good regardless...

Medium-light mouthfeel with fair carbonation.

I'll go ahead and give Whippet Wheat | Thirsty Dog Brewing Company a 4.

I just had this on tap a little bit ago and it is FANTASTIC.

It pours an opaque yellow/orange with a thin head that stuck around for the entire drink

The taste is very banana forward; true to the style. Its crisp and refreshing. Perfect for the summer. I could drink this all day.

It had a slightly thick mouthfeel witch I love in beer.

I didn't rate the smell because honestly I dont remeber the smell other than it was a great first sniff. (So ignore the smell score)

This is honestly one of the strongest Hefeweizens ive ever had.

Pale straw in color. Very faint aroma. Taste was of mild citrus. Clean and crisp finish. Very refreshing. Over all a well made beer. One of my favorite beers from Ohio.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild wheat and graininess, very little aroma. Taste is wheat, banana, lemons, hints of green apples at the finish. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Another pickup from Beer Noggin in Bronxville, NY around Christmas time. I enjoy Wheat beers and Hefeweizen, so that's what attracted me to grab one. Didn't look or smell really anything noticeable, but it was a good tasting beer. Could have a few of these. The 5.2% ABV is a good amount too. I remember it being smooth and easy to drink. It left a good enough impression not to turn another one down in the future.

From the bottle in a pint glass, this hefe pours a cloudy, dirty, light amber color with yellow highlights. A moderate head of white dissipating foam fades to a thin fluffy layer with light lacing. The nose is banana, clove, some light wheat notes, and a strong well water note I have never smelled before. Flavors follow with a moderate banana flavor, medium clove on the back, lemon zest, on the middle, and an odd flavor liken unto well water like I have not tasted in a long time. Creamy and smooth with prickly on the aftertaste. Not one I would visit again and a disappointment from one of my favorite breweries in Ohio.
