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.

ChadPolenz (1655) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 10A Weissbier

AROMA: Potent Bavarian yeast esters of banana and clove; wheat imparts bready aroma. Some orange sherbet scent in the background. 11/12

APPEARANCE: Hazy amber/orange, but translucent. Effervescent carbonation visible. Large, white, froth laces and retains well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Moderately strong banana bread flavor throughout (wheat + esters). Clove is prominent as well and imparts a light peppery sensation. Faint orange juice concentrate as it finishes. Hops are used sparingly and complement the natural spicy sensation. Each sip is delicious. 19/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with a nice viscosity. Mouthfeel is soft, comfortable and smooth. Effervescent but too thick to be crisp like a lager. Aftertaste is mostly clean with minor banana flavor. Very refreshing and easily quaffed. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Probably the best hefeweizen being made in the USA today and better than many German brews of the style. A near perfect beer. 10/10

TOTAL SCORE: 48/50

SpringsLicker (3417) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Slightly hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Light bready aroma with some banana and clove. Lightly sweet flavor with a bit of citrus. A bit light but no flaws. I would prefer more body also.

PanMarek (184) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Fruity - banana - nose with a little clove. Cloudy, dark golden pour with thick persistent foam. Dry wheat at first quickly gives way to banana and spice. Medium carbonation with slick mouthfeel. Maltiness around the edges and some citrus too. Maybe some yeast on the end. Certainly a sweet example of a wheat beer.

kramer (5770) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2016
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.
