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.

sonnycheeba (3049) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Tap at brewery. Pours hazy gold with creamy white head. Aroma is banana, cloves, orange peel, cereal and cookie malts, floral notes, and light lavender. Flavor is dry malts with some light fruit sweetness, light butterscotch, faint floral hops, and faint herbs; dry finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

Bierkrug (2109) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 On tap at the Brewpub. Pours a small white head and hazy yellow color. Aroma is sweet light bananas, cloves, and orange. As it warms more banana. Taste is sweet light watery malt, tart, cloves, and orange. Palate is soft effervescence and mellow but watery. I am very critical of southern style German beers. A surprising and great attempt from Florida at this German Classic

mverity (254) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Tap at Proof. Slightly hazy tan-orange with off white head, medium-thick collar. Aroma is really citrusy, I get some plenty of wheat-like grains, and some berry. Light in body, low carbonation. Thin mouthfeel, this beer fades quickly from my palate. Taste is pretty much exactly like the aroma.

snoworsummer (1613) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 3, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Pours opaque gold with a thin, fizzy white head and some lacing. Tastes like sweet bubblegum and wheat, light musk and lemon. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like grains, citrus, musk.

rbrazell (1457) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Draft at Proof. Cloudy golden pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma is the usual suspects of a Hefe yet very well balanced, not cloying banana with a splash of citrus in the mix. Flavor is similar and spritzy with a clean snappy finish. Not bad.

S_Side_Smitty (392) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Pours cloudy gold with a thick white head. Aroma is clove with a tinge of citrus. Taste is nice for a wheat - clove all day, then a beautiful toasty malt comes in the mid palate. A lite bitterness runs throughout with a finish that just fades out to oblivion - kinda like the one drinking it.

brystmar (1118) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Swirly lace and head above the cloudy body. Solid aroma of wheaty grains, coriander, banana, bubblegum. Pretty well balanced, good body, tasty overall.

drowland (5961) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2014
1/17/14. Shared by a kind soul at Proof. Hazy yellow orange pour with a mild off-white head. Somewhat plain aroma and flavor - mild banana, spice, cream, and pale malts. Appropriate but bland. Not bad.

Draft at the Funky Buddha Lounge. Snifter. Pours a golden light orange with lots of haze. Thick fluffy white head. Aroma of cloves, bananas, orange, hay, grass and cereal. The taste is similar with the full spices coming through. A little acidic. Light body, medium carbonation. Crisp finish.
