“Moo Brew pays homage to the classic Bavarian wheat beer, by offering a textural, boutique Hefeweizen. True to style, Hefeweizen is naturally cloudy with a vibrant yellow colour and strong foam head. The flavour and aroma is based on yeast-derived banana and clove. The Hefeweizen should have a creamy, rich mousse, reminiscent of vintage Champagne. Flavour match with washed rind cheeses, or South American, South and East Indian cuisine. Challenge with dessert pairings”.
Our first crack at this Tasmanian breweries range. Served in a Weizen glass the cloudy straw- yellow pour whipped up a frothy 1 finger head that slowly collapsed with little lacing to show for it. Lovely sweet and refreshing aroma of banana, clove, bubblegum, lemon juice and some creamy notes. Also some subtle yeasty undertones are present. Slightly watery mouthfeel with mild carbonation. Although the body is quite light on the palate isn’t too dissimilar to the aroma with the addition of zesty citrus and spice upfront. Delicious creamy hints of vanilla move forward onto a slightly sour citrus finish with a good hint of funk. A modest 5.1% ABV reflects a well balanced and easy drinking hefeweizen. You won’t see us rushing out for another, but all in all it’s a decent offering.
