COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“August in Florida is God’s way of reminding us who’s in charge.” ― Blaize Clement

Unfiltered and refreshing, our German-style wheat beer is full on flavor yet light on the palate. Authentic hefeweizen yeast creates the compelling aromas of bananas, citrus, and cloves, while the all wheat and malt body perfectly captures the brilliance of an orange- and yellow-flecked Florida sunset.

Pairing Suggestions: Mild or sharp goat cheeses, arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette, grilled shrimp, beer-battered onion rings with spicy aioli, whole wheat crust pizza, honey-drizzled baklava.

blklab2007 (2085) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle poured a dark golden color with a thick one finger head that retained well. Aroma has big banana, wheat, mild sweetness, and lots of yeasty character. Mouth feel is light with low side carbonation. Flavor again is all about the yeast, banana, flowery, wheat, and very easy drinking.
