Flying Dog In Heat Wheat Hefeweizen

inheat wheatThe 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.

Other reviews in the series are:  Old Scratch Amber Lager; Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale, Road Dog Porter and Flying Dog Snake Dog IPA.
