As summer hits amid another year in which Aussies remain crazy for hazy, Moo Brew double down with the release of a new, session-friendly hazy and the return of a style sometimes returned to as the original hazy beer.

Starting with the newcomer, Halfway Hazy, it's a beer which does what it says on the (rather jazzy by Moo standards) tin. I’d argue the haze is actually more than halfway there – it's as full as many bigger hazy pales – while the mandarin and mango meets stonefruit meets citrus rind aromas punch above the 3.3 percent ABV too. The giveaway is the palate – you can fool people only so far with oats, wheat and lactose – while the rind like bitterness ensures the finish is dry and lean.

Back for a good time, not a long time, is their previously AIBA trophy-winning Hefeweizen. I find it benefits from warming a couple of degrees above fridge temp for maximum enjoyment, that way the banana bread like malts are allowed to unfurl and add ballast to the bubblegum, lemon/citrus and ripe banana fruitiness. There's a touch of spice to taste and flavours that go on and on, yet their paean to an old world classic still manages to finish with a fair old quench.
