Game Day Beer Review: Funky Buddha Brewery Floridian Hefeweizen
(5.6% ABV, $5) Sampled on draft at the Funky Buddha Lounge in Boca Raton, Florida. Floridian pours a clear, golden-yellowish, with a bright white head. It was poured on tap into a tall, trumpet-style glass.
Floridian smells strongly of banana, although there's also earthy scent which I can't quite identify. On sipping the beer, I'm getting a really clean flavor: it's very refreshing, green apples with a dominant banana taste that lingers awhile on the finish. Untraditional for the style, perhaps, but also satisfyingly delicious.
This beer is extremely well balanced, and would be a perfect quaff to cool down on a hot summer day -- or even a hot winter day, as we often get down here in South Florida. Recommended: B+
