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.

Keg. Bananas and cloves, lemon zest with a stronger tartness than typical for hefeweizens, citrus fruits. Incredibly refreshing. Thrilled this is rumored to be Funky Buddha’s staple beer when they start bottling.

Hazy orange color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, banana, citrus, and clove. Taste of a nice hefe, banana, light clove, and some citrus and medium happiness in the finish.

jsquire (3641) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Murky gold color with a lasting white head. Traditional Bavarian hefe nose with banana, clove and a bit of bubblegum. This is a nice, refreshing beer with a bit of fruitiness with the banana and clove spiciness.

Bottle at Shades of Green. First Funky Buddha beer and it was tasty. This was a true to form German hefe. Lots of yeast, clove and banana. Nice.

blipp (6553) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Draft. Pours hazy orange gold with a white head. Fruity yeasty base, with banana, citrus, light spicy notes, wheat, and some light bubblegummy sweetness in the finish. Pretty dope.

Extra in a recent trade. Smooth palate with some clove and spice. Little bit of banana. Can imagine this is pretty refreshing in a hot Florida sunmer. I’d like another for a July weekend in Atlanta.
