3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of our favourite stops on our Tasmania tour. The owner has committed himself to providing a total sensory experience with his Morilla Estates winery, restaurant, microbrewery, accomodations, and gallery. He has succeeded on all levels. The wines are terrific, the accomodations were the best we had on our whole trip, the food was amazing, and all of the beers are good, and some are even outstanding. The bottles are nicely designed, resembling little champagne flagons, and the labels are beautifully artistic. The average beer drinker is not the marketing target here. This hefe is a solid example of the style, but not the best of the Moo Brews. It pours a hazy straw yellow with a dense white merangue. Big aromas of bananas and spices, light and lively on the palate. Refreshing.

Bottle. Quite decent and a decent take on a German Wheat.This has some nice estery banana fruit aswell as the cloveyness you tend to associate with the style. This has more lemony qualities than most, sweet and tart, like lemon icing sugar.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Received 330 bottle via trade with jonno. Pours a semi-clear golden straw colored brew with a heavy and thick off-white head that long retains a rocky and pillow head. Aroma of golden grain malt, a hint of tropical fruit and banana esters. Taste is medium bodied, well balanced between golden grain, yeast and some light fruit character. Finish semi-sweet, a little banana aftertaste and a fresh floral hop flavors.

330ml bottle. Very pale light straw colourwith a volcanic white snow capped head that would not look out of place atop the Swiss Alps.Some haziness with bubblegum and freshly baked banana cake aromas. Flavour is clean and crisp with a light airy finish that is a little thin.

Hazy milky white color. Very estry with apples, butterscotch in the nose with a light mouth. Refreshing, but a bit too yeasty for me. The yeast also gave off some weird notes.

Moo Brew Hefeweizen, drank from a CCB snifter... tons of carbonation, restricts pouring, ok retention, very ugly base beer, generic neon yellow... harsh acidic nose of wheat, clove, alcohol, blah... taste is lightly skunked to start, chemical, watery, alcohol, sweet finish... a mess basically

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle courtesy of alagnak. This was lableed as Moo Brew Hefeweizen, I assume this is the beer. Pour is couldy yellow golden with a frothy 1 1/2 inch white head. Aroma of mild banana fruit and bubble gum sweetness. Both express in a pretty generic hefe manner. The wheat is present, though also subdued. Taste is a bunch of sweet banana up front, almost an unnatural banana sweet, then it turns a touch citric, then it gives in to the mineral earthy wheat. The tail end of this beer was actually pretty nice, if it wasn’t overpowered by the sweet banana up front. The yeast turns a bit dirty in the finish, with a weird dirty clove thing going on. Palate is medium to full, though still quite easy drinking. Thanks for hauling this one back and sending it my way Chris.
