Bloody hell! Not sure what they're feeding the brewers in Richmond these days but, when it comes to limited release beers, it's a case of blink and you'll miss it. Latest to be tapped at the Goat brewery is The Hoeff, a southern Bavarian wheat beer (hefeweizen) that comes with a little nod to everyone's favourite lifeguard. Altered from last year's version thanks to the use of a yeast brought in specially from Germany, it's cloudy enough for a supporting role in The Fog and something of a tease too: the nose is subdued - hints of lemon, some doughy yeast aromas if you really get stuck in - leaving you ill-prepared for the bags of zesty flavour that follow. There's plenty of the banana you'd expect from the style along with some creamy fruit salad flavours that took Crafty back to short pants and chewy sweets days. The merest hint of bitterness completes the picture in a beer tasty enough to have the real Hoff chasing burgers across his floor again.
