Flying Dog - In Heat Wheat Hefeweizen

Dead Soldier
Where to Dig Up More About This Beer
In Heat Wheat Hefeweizen 
Flying Dog Brewery
Frederick, MD USA
Est. 1983

Brain Damage Quotient = 4.7 % ABV
Fluid Oz. = 12.0 

Postmortem Brew Review
Solid orange haze color.
Wheaty, bready smell. Minimal noble hops aromas.
Lots of bubbly nucleation.
One finger white head dissipates to slight cover quickly.
Taste of fresh wheat; bready.  Also some banana notes.
Light bodied and refreshing. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Flying Dog makes some serious beers with some less than serious names.  Nothing wrong with that.  Whatever you call their beer, just don't call it bad.   This Hefe example is interesting in color.  It's not as hazy as some other wheat beers, but that matters not.  What it might lack in haze, it more than makes up for in refreshing taste.

It would be a 'bitch' if you miss out on this dog.
