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 that’s as energizing as the sun itself. Banana and clove-like aromas add interest and depth to an already impressively well balanced brew. There’s no doubt; it’s meant to be a Sunny Haze kind of day.

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.

KajII (782) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2012
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 summer’s day...

bhensonb (11095) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 13, 2012
Can from Bruisin Ales. Pours hazy light gold with a slight white bubbly head. Aroma of yeast/spice and citrus. Near med body. Flavor is lightly banana with even lighter clove. Drinks pretty well. One of the good/better hefes.

nickd717 (3497) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 7, 2012
12oz can. Cloudy straw color with a medium white head and some particulate matter hanging around at the bottom. Typical hefeweizen aroma with wheaty banana and clove notes. Pretty standard flavor, not at all unpleasant, but if you can picture a mill, this would more or less be the run of it. Slightly dry finish with clove and wheat notes. Medium-light body with soft carbonation. Not particularly good, but does the trick if you want a decent beer of this style.

obguthr (3840) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Baby food banana and peach nose with a certain rice character, good strength. Milky yellow, thin head. Flavor is still rice-like. A more typically lemony american wheat flavor predominates, but banana notes can be detected. No cloves. True enough to style, but only barely.

DiarmaidBHK (3408) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2012
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.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2012
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.

Cybercat (3333) - Georgia, USA - JAN 31, 2012
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.

decaturstevo (5035) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Hazed yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of clove and medium banana. Flavor mirrors aroma with no bitter. Light bodied with aggressive carbonation.
