The armchair tour of Flying Dog Brewery’s offerings continues. A tough job but someones got to do it. Up this time is the Flying Dog In Heat Wheat Hefeweizen. Hefeweizen is a German style of wheat beer which typically uses at least 50% wheat in the brewing process and is usually cloudy in appearance due to the yeast (Hefe) remaining in the beer.
As anticipated the beer was, in fact, a cloudy yellow in appearance and had a nice thick white head. Strong nose of citrus and cloves and it tasted exactly like it smelled. This was my least favorite of all the ones I have sampled so far. I found the taste of cloves predominated over everything and unfortunately cloves are not one of my favorite flavors to begin with. Light bodied and 4.7% alcohol.
