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.

Cloudy yellow body with a small wispy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is fruity with banana and clove, plenty of yeastiness, soft wheat. The flavor is pretty spot on, lots of fruity esters, soft wheat and bready pale malt, lightly spicy lingering finish. Soft and easy drinking with gentle carbonation. Pretty great stuff.

Pours slightly cloudy golden with a small white head, light lacing. Aroma of banana, cloves and cereal. Flavors of cloves, banana esters and oranges
Ok, but I was expecting it to be better considering the high overall score.

Banana, bubblegum, spices. Very flavourful and aromatic. This is as good as any traditional hefe I’ve had. Very quenching, perfect for Florida.

It’s refreshing to see an "American Hefe" that’s true to the German style. I don’t think there is such thing as an American hefe. Huge thanks to Keven for sharing this. Pours a tang color with a big bubble head. Aroma of orange fruit, wheat and yeast. Drinks juicy, wheat forward, with a cool, yeast finish. What a hefe is supposed to be. Very enjoyable.

Bottle courtesy of GandGKevin. Thanks! Hazy gold pour with a tall, fluffy white head. Aroma is wheat, yeast, citrus notes and spice. Taste is banana, wheat, yeast, citrus and spices. Light-medium body with a strong, bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more banana, light bubblegum notes, wheat, yeast, citrus and soft spice.
