Despite the continuing rainfall, the Goat team is manfully pursuing its mission to bring summer into our lives with another one-off summery release. We'd heard they were concocting an American Wheat but, when this was raised with head Goat Dave at the brewery his reaction suggested that, once more, it's more of a mixed bag rather than anything too definable. What it is, then, is a light yellow coloured hazy number that throws up plenty of lovely light tropical fruits from the inclusion of mucho Kiwi hops (Nelson Sauvin and Motueka for those that care about such things), has a delicate, spritzy palate and cuts off nice and dry (thanks to the 30% wheat malt) with a decent dose of bitterness. She's named after the famous neon sign just up the road from the brewery, has been put into 60 kegs and is another welcome addition to the brewery's canon of summertime quaffers.
