2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can from Appalachian Vintner. Pours very clear yellow with a thin head. Not much on the nose except a slight clove vibe. Not a ton on the tongue. Finishes with a bit of dryness. Not really feeling this one on any discernible level.

12 ounce can from Whole Foods Market Raleigh. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized frothy head that fades quickly. Aroma of big yeast and citrus notes with some breadiness and spice. The taste is pineapple, citrus, bread, yeast, spice and a bit of caramel. Medium bodied. Nice hefe.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong aroma is wheaty and yeasty with a firm undertone of pear. It pours a somewhat hazy solar yellow with a decent, if not too persistent, fluffy white head. Mouth-filling flavor has firm wheat, yeast and pear tones and just a hint of mandarin orange - or is that tangerine? Firm-bodied texture has plenty of fizz and leaves a tingly, wheaty, fruity finish. If you could can sunshine, it would probably taste a lot like this beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma of banana, hay, and clove spice. Fairly light bodied for a hefeweizen. Flavor mainly bananas esters slight bubblegum, just a hair of clove spice, and some rather soft carbonation. A little more body would be nice. Finishes rather fast. Could definitely be a dangerous summertime beer. Wish I drank this in the middle of july.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Aroma is where this brew shines exuding banana, melon jolly rancher notes. Pours a murky straw yellow with a small ring of white head. Has a nice full mouthfeel. Flavor is banana pudding with tart lemon notes.

[August 25, 2011]
Can from Vintner Wine Market. This is a light orange, very cloudy. The aroma is a bit funky at first, very grainy with citrus and distinct tartness like a wet blanket. The flavor is sweeter with a light palate. Yeast is not overdone, actually there isn’t a whole lot of anything going on. I suppose Sunny Haze’s purpose is to be a thirst quencher from the can and it accomplishes that well enough.

Can shared with maniac. Pours a hazy milky yellow with a dense white head. Lemon citrus is the biggest note here. Some clove, some faint bubblegum on the tail. Only semi refreshing though. Meh. Glad to see they are canning though.

12 oz. can from SoHo Organic Market in Elizabeth City, NC. Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Expected aroma of bubblegum and lemon peel. The citrus takes a backseat to the wheat in the flavor with heavier notes of banana and bubblegum. Light and refreshing. It’s a hefeweizen so there’s nothing that will blow your mind here, but it’s a very well done hefe.
