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.

Citrus dominant hefeweizen more in the vein of a Wheat Ale than a true german Hefeweizen but it’s kinda sorta a little estery so I guess that’s why it goes in this category. Pretty good but lacks the punch of an 80 acre or the authenticity of a Victory hefeweizen.

Very nice but not so special. Had it in a beer celebration and was nice to drink. Quite tart and floral.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2014
On tap at Lokal Miami. Pours a hazed orange with a wispy head. Light hefe aromas of dough yeast lemon banana. Medium to light carbonation with a medium bodied mouth feel. Lots of earthy malt banana with a dry finish.

ExpendableHero (764) - Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Murky yellow beer with a frothy, white head. Aromas of tropical fruit and wheat. Tastes of bananas, oranges, and slight pineapple notes. Very citric with a nice, fresh wheat balance to the flavors. Sweet, semi-tart, fruit finish. Refreshing, tasty, but a tad forgettable.

nimbleprop (5088) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 24, 2014
4oz pour at Churchkey DC pours a murky, dandelion gold with some creamy white head. Nose is fruity, tropical fruit, pear, mildly grassy, a little talcum. Flavor is sweet, a little buttery, mild biscuit, mild grass, a little floral. Creamy finish. Decent.

solidfunk (4323) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Pours cloudy golden with ok head and lacing. Not sure I like the helles addition to this. Finishes with light sweetness, light sourness. Some light banana and some bread yeast. Tap at Churchkey shared by Travlr, thanks!

Travlr (13031) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Draft at Churchkey. Cloudy pale yellow color. Aroma of white pepper, dusty lemon. Taste is citrus, light spice, subtle banana. Easy drinking.

delacerveza (166) - Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Typical cloudy appearance but not as strong of a banana/clove/bubblegum scent or flavor as found in a Bavarian style hefe. I guess that is what makes it a FL style; more citrusy. This could be good or bad depending which style you prefer. Quality/flavor was consistent amongst the actual brewery draft and retail taps.
