COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sunny Haze will brighten even your finest day. "Hefe" means "with yeast" so expect to find our hefeweizen cloudy in appearance due to its unfiltered status. Fruity hints and slight spiciness of this hefeweizen will mingle in your mouth, creating a crispness thatís as energizing as the sun itself. Banana and clove-like aromas add interest and depth to an already impressively well balanced brew. Thereís no doubt; itís meant to be a Sunny Haze kind of day.

Can to pint. Looks like a good hefeweizen; a hazy yellow with nice carbonation and thin lacing. Smells decent, but pretty mild. Tastes of banana and clove; not much zip for a hefe. Average mouthfeel (at best). Probably a one-timer for me.

Great hefe. Iím not sure why hefeís donít do better on here. I guess Iíd a beer doesnít beat the shit out of you it isnít very good. Anyhoo.....hazy bronze color. Nice banana notes in the nose. The flavor is effervescent and marshmallow-y. Great for summer.....especially Ina a can.

Can into a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden color. Has a little more body and sweetness, touch of banana than your more mass distributed versions of this style. Aroma is a little lemony and a little grassy. Finish comes in a little peppery and herbal.

Bright hazy yellow. Seems to catch the light well. Very little head. No retention. A little two sweet but nice banana and clove.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2012
16 ounce pint - $6.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Served up a pale golden body, quite hazed, with a smallish, white, though never-ending head. After knocking out a few handwritten notes, then, firing up the laptop and connecting to the pesky WiFi here, it is still there, the head. After a round of asinine texts from my ex-fiancee, itís still there, still going strong (presumably all day long).

Smell: No-doubt-about-it malted wheat, with supporting, expected notes of bananas, cloves, and lemon chiffon pie filling.

Taste: Staunchly wheaty, with a big kick of twangy wheat and sweetness akin to whipped cream sweetened with powdered sugar. Banana puree cut with whole milk and spiced lightly with a bit of ground clove. Touch of lemon akin to a taste of Lemonheads before you hit the sour core. Light hop character, lightly bitter. The cream and 10x powdered sugar come back before the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Creamyish mouthfeel throughout.

Overall: Seriously, like a hour later, the head has not diminished in size. Large on the wheat character, but a very promising hefe.

Cloudy yellow color with minimal lacing. Musky nose with hints of coriander and lemon. Crisp palate up front with a mellow and smooth finish. Ideal beer for summer consumption and use of a can only makes it more appealing.

cmc619 (386) - California, USA - MAY 9, 2012
From can into Boston Lager glass. Decent pour; cloudy orange yellow with thin, but persistent, white head. Very candy-like banana-bubblegum aroma; lacks some depth/subtlety. Flavor a bit sweet, body a bit thin. Fine attempt at the style, but itís hard to beat the German masters.

Can: The aroma consists of lemon, banana, apple, faint clove, and a touch of sulfur. It pours a slightly hazy gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with light lemon and banana. The finish has light apple and a hint of sulfur.

Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that diminished quickly, down to a very thin layer and a small collar of residue producing some fair streaky lacing. The aroma was of a straw malt and a sweaty yeasty with notes of banana, citrus (lemon and maybe a little orange) and a hint of clove. The taste was mildly sweet with a strong wheat presence from the beginning and then progressed with a big note of citrus and a mild hint of spice at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time and was refreshingly citrusy. Mouthfeel was light in body with a mild creamy watery texture and had a good strong carbonation. Overall this brew is a very light Hefeweizen that has a nice low ABV. I found it to be a very refreshing brew, which would be great for those days hanging out on the boat on a hot summerís day...
