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 poured into a weizen glass. Very excellent hefeweizen. It is an awesome light, hazy yellow with a big white head. Wonderful banana/clove flavor. Medium carbonation. Overall a very excellent beer. One of my favorite domestice Hefeís

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.

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.

Cybercat (3281) - 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.

zizzybalubba (1409) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2011
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. Itís a hefeweizen so thereís nothing that will blow your mind here, but itís a very well done hefe.

Drake (8503) - 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.

bubbleflubber (1819) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2012
On draught at the Hickory Hops Brew Festival. Pours pale golden, hazy, with a nice head that leaves fluffy lacing. Huge banana notes to the nose. Lots of yeasty esters, bold banana and wheat flavors. Subtle carbonation provides a soft mouthfeel, which on the palate goes down great and refreshing for a hot day. Pretty great hefe.

12 oz. can. Pours a light, hazy gold with a big, fluffy, white head and good lacing. The aroma is bread dough, bananas, cloves, and honey. The flavor is a mellow, balanced blend of bready sweetness, orange peel bitterness, and a little spice. The palate is light, creamy, and a little flat. Overall, this is a great tasting, well balanced beer, but the mouthfeel is a little lacking.
