55. Flying Dog In-Heat Wheat Hefeweizen

This beer has plenty of flavor and is different than anything I have reviewed to date. Color is great and pours with a nice head that dissipates quickly, cloudy finish found with most hefeweizens. Drink is smooth with very little bitterness and low alcohol content. The flavor to me seems a bit off and it may be the combination of banana and cloves that make this happen. Finishes clean and I believe it would be a good beer on a hot summer day. As you can tell from the photo I happened up this one on a rainy fall day. Not a bad beer but plenty of other options that are better including my favorite Hefe – Widmer Bros
