Brewed partly to appease a Bavarian regular at the Holgate pub, it follows classic wheat beer lines, but with an international recipe sheet. What this means is the yeast has its origins in Bavaria, imparting banana and clove aromas, the barley and wheat malt is from Bohemia, Australia and New Zealand, and there’s a dash of Czech hops to provide the mildest of bitterness.

A simple and flavour packed style that works well. Plenty of sweet banana and spice; totally uncomplicated but executed really well. On tap at Holgate.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2014 Good Beer Showcase - Ormond Hall - Village (10-Oct-13) Sweet banana and spiced aroma. Light amber colour, lowish head and suds lacing. Big sweet banana flavour. Light herbal banana finish, similar profile to a Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen, but sweeter and not as refined.
