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.

adnielsen (9470) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Can @ home, picked up in Charlotte. Pours a cloudy, dull yellow appearance with a nice, foamy, white head. A ton of spicy yeast in the nose that has a sort of nutmeg quality to it. Potpourri, lemongrass, tangerine also offered in the aroma. Slightly acidic and slightly metallic. Flavor is a bit dull, though the can was sitting on a hot shelf for god knows how long. A bit of banana and more citrus. A bit twangy. Decent.

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.

3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Light pale golden pour with a fluffy off-white head. Banana, cream, and lemon on the aroma. Banana and citrus in the flavor, more spice, and doughy wheat malts. Not bad.

b3shine (5842) - Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2012
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.

Warner Robins, Ga. - Lazy Dog Growler - 12 oz can. Pours a hazy light golden with a light soft snow white head. Aroma of cloves and banana.
