In-Heat Wheat

By Flying Dog Brewery

So spring is in the air, the days are finally getting warmer, time to try some great beers that can be enjoyed in the springtime. For me one of the best beers for spring is a wheat beer, so I figured to I would try In-Heat Wheat which was recommended by a friend.

Pour

In-Heat Wheat pours a golden-yellow to a slight orange in color with small bone white head of about a 1/2 inch or so. What stands out is the very large amount of carbonation running up the side of the glass after the pour.

With the large amount of carbonation and the typical murkiness of a wheat beer this is a very unattractive beer to say the least if you’re just looking.

Smell

The smell of In-Heat Wheat is a little bit better and different from the looks. ON first smell you get the normal malty and some fruitiness from the yeast. On second smell you get something totally different something that can be described as a spiciness or a clove smell along with the full kick of the wheat grains.

Every time I go into smell again I get more of a different scent it seems to be building of a fruitier smell maybe that of bananas.

Taste

The taste of In-Heat Wheat starts out with a blast of the grain you’re really used to in a wheat beer, then it yields the right of way to some sweetness and the taste of bananas and kick of yeasty almost bread like taste. You guessed it banana bread!

ON second taste you get more of a building taste of some background spices, more of a clove style taste and a touch of lemon zest. Now this is what spring is all about!

Verdict

As mostly a darker beer drinker it is good to have a change every now and then. A wheat beer can be very tasty and very nice to cool off with after being out in the sun.

In-Heat Wheat is a very refreshing beer on spring/summer afternoon that isn’t a whole lot to look at but packs more taste than your average wheat beer and well worth the price of admission.

Verdict 5 of 6
