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.

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.

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.
