COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kiwis like to eat bread by the truckload, but we’re sometimes surprised to find that wheat can also make a mighty good beer. It gives it a sweeter, cloudier base, while the yeast produces a unique flavour of ripe bananas, vanilla and clove. So raise a glass to the Weiz Guys who invented this brew. It’s the best thing since sliced bread.

Kiwis also know their beer. Way back in 2000, when Carl’s purpose in life was to introduce true to style international beers to the locals, most of us were scratching our heads when we held up a glass of Bavarian Hefe, this cloudy concoction called a wheat beer. 16 years on, us worldly lot have weized up, caught up and arguably overtaken the rest of the world in our craft beer know how. So we have finally given our Tuatara Hefe an identity of it’s own. Because we think you’re weiz enough to figure the rest out.

Taste: Ripe banana, vanilla and clove. Balanced sweetness, with slight tart finish.
Aroma: Banana and clove

Draught at The Malthouse, Wellington. Cloudy golden, small head. Aroma of bubblegum and banana. Malty with restricted sweetness. It’s very soft and drinkable, and the esters are strong, but not overpowering. An excellently balanced session beer!

My favourite beer so far, this is the one that got me into craft beers, haven’t really found a wheat beer close this, smells like fruit / bubblegum, gentle really subtle clove with vanilla and banana flavours, need to tip the bottle a few times to mix up the sediment, cloudy in appearance, easy as all hell to drink. Only reason I’m not going 10 out of 10 is due to me being an amateur at this stuff :) If you ever get the chance to try this please do so, its AMAZING.

A wonderful drop. Poured from the taps at Regionals. Instantly hit with the beautiful fragrance. With my nose sitting 20cm above the glass there is nothing but the smell of sweet bananas and bubble gum wafting upwards. Lovely bright colour with a slight cloud. Taste wasn’t as intense as i thought it would be but still top notch.
