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.

Bouteille. Trouble orangée, col fin blanc.Arôme d’ester fruité, pointe d’épice et léger houblonné. Palais est légèrement fruité, ester et muscade avec une pointe épicée rappelant la coriandre. Impression plus orangée en ressort. Effervescence est moyenne-haute et crisp, fleuri avec une pointe herbacée pour les houblons qui restent dans une approche noble.

youdictategood (415) - Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Draft at Engine Rose. Very hazy, bright orange pour. Banana, wheat, yeast aroma. More of a citrus flavor, with wheat and a little dough in the background. Very light with little carbonation - mouthfeel is almost like a flat cider. Pretty standard for the style, but damn refreshing on a 95 degree day in Florida.

blklab2007 (2092) - 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.

Gription79 (2614) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to homer321. This is a solid German Hefeweizen. Banana, clove, very much a yeast driven beer. The malts are doughy, there is a slight tartness that makes this very refreshing.

trapped (1377) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle. Hazy bright yellow with small off-white head, sweetish citrus aroma, high carbonation, citrus taste, longish citrus peel finish. Very nice and balanced hefeweizen.
