With the last drops of their dunkelweizen, Brick Kiln, drained from the Brewhouse bar, Holgate has lined up a new, more seasonally suited, wheat beer. It is, as far as we're aware, their first hefeweizen (southern German style wheat beer) and, after much discussion over potential names - Banana Snuggler (don't ask), Island Farm Hefe - they decided it would be christened The Little Heifer. Brewed partly to appease a Bavarian regular at their pub, it follows "classic wheat beer lines, but with an international recipe sheet". What 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. Out just in time for the remaining Oktoberfests - prost!
