Today we are drinking the Flying Circus Coconut Hefeweizen out of the Check Six Brewing Company of Southport, down on the coast in Brunswick County. Their vision is “to create a diverse and high quality line of ales. Made with all natural ingredients sourced locally whenever possible.” This beer is German in origin and has a cloudy appearance is pale in color. A hint of coconut and banana flavor along with strong carbonation makes this fun beer perfect for a sunny day. Ingredients include Pilsner and Wheat malts, and Hallertauer hops. The Flying Circus was a German fighter unit composed of 4 squadrons led by the Red Baron. This squadron was given this title by allied forces for it’s brightly painted planes, with The Red Baron leading the fight!
