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 gold, white head, banana, citrus and clove. Shocking for a hefe! But why mess with what works?

Aurelius (4027) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2014
On tap, Parlay Sports Bar, with LuckyDog. Muddy appearance, musty wheat, odd fruits and spiciness. A bit spritzier than a lot of hefes that I’ve had. Will need to resample, didn’t take notes, but I wasn’t really impressed.
