Notes/Commercial Description:
On a sunny summer day, just like today, the Great and Wonderful Oz set sail in his hot-air balloon. As ballast, some say, his basket was loaded to the brim with Hoyne Hefeweizen. After lift-off, his thirst gathered like a summer storm. Quenching it, he lightened his load, and found himself carried delightfully away. The rest, as they say, is his story.

The German yeast character is rather subdued so it sort of bridges the gap between an American Wheat and a true hefe.

There's a nice malt backbone (Gambrinus honey malt no doubt), but I'd be surprised if the grist was more than 50% wheat.

Slight residual sweetness enhances the honey flavour, without being too sweet.

Nice brew.

Hoyne Summer haze pours a slightly hazy deep gold with a thin white head. The aroma is crisp, malty wheat with a hint of spice, with an odd sweet graininess. The flavor is similar, with plenty of wheat and a hint of honey in the finish. The odd spicy grainy character is present in the flavor and there is a bit of lingering sweetness. Overall a pretty decent beer, but not as refreshing as I would like.

Poured from a 650ml bottle. This is definitely an American-style hefe. It offers a rich “natural” honey character however there weren't much in the way of “Hefe” yeast notes. There is a fine carbonation and silky mouthfeel with a big dose of honey flavour mid palate, yet it is balanced out with enough hop bitterness on the finish. Well made and quaffable, but more like a cloudy wheat beer than a traditional hefe.
