Brewed with beetroot which gives it a beautiful deep pinky purple colour, this is a really lovely Hefeweizen.
The beer pours with an enormous cloud of froth for a head, in fact I struggled to contain it, and smells of the things you’d expect from a Hefe, like lightly spiced honey and bread dough.
And taking a swig you find a great big boozy take on the style, a chest warming alcohol hit pushing the soft creamy shortcake and caramel of the malting forward.
The hopping is sharp and keen, crisp with fresh green herbal leaves, and there’s a little sour dough spice and a hint of banana from the yeast.
The beetroot, along with adding colour, adds a very nice woody earthiness right in the finish.
I like this very much indeed.
