Moo Brew Hefeweizen
A Little Ray of Sunshine / Nine West: Wedge Ankle Boots, Saba: White Skirt, Zara: Grey Knit / George Ezra: Budapest / John Kelly
“A refreshing little number that is perfectly suited to summer and is a welcome interruption to winter. A divine intervention, some might even say…”
The mercury has certainly dropped and there really is no point fighting it. Winter has hit and the only way to get through it for those of us who were almost certainly amphibians in a former life, is to rug up and as enthusiastically as possible, embrace the freshness of the cool, crisp air. We can also relish in the fact that night time comes sooner which in theory should mean that beer o’clock is upon us earlier, shouldn’t it?
There are days however when 13°C (we are in Australia after all!) demands a glint of light, a glimmer of hope…. “a little ray of sunshine on a cloudy day”. And if the sun isn’t going to warm us with its rays and the winter love fest feelings are waning, it’s time to reach for the cheery Moo Brew Hefeweizen (for the non-Germans amongst us: HEH-feh-vite-zehn). It’s sunshine in a glass and can only but make you feel good. The hefe (yeast in German) provides touches of ripe banana and hints of warming clove whilst the weizen (wheat in German) creates a silky mouthfeel and lasting foam in the beer. A refreshing little number that is perfectly suited to summer and is a welcome interruption to winter. A divine intervention, some might even say… well, I do anyway.
It’s keeping your tootsies cosy in Ninewest wedge ankle boots and denying winter with bare legs, partially covered by a crisp white Saba skirt. It’s the juxtaposition of George Ezra’s 21 year young voice singing the lyrically upbeat Budapest and of course it can only be the incredible talent of John Kelly, the artist responsible for all of Moo Brew’s extraordinarily beautiful labels.
PS No bananas were harmed in the making of this beer
