This type of beer originated in Germany and is made with wheat, coriander and salt, which give it a unique lemon and lime aroma. It’s light, sessionable and thirst-quenching with a delicate salty twang. We used a combination of hops: Saaz and Wakatu – one classically German, the other adding our head brewer’s signature dash of New Zealand flair.
At Moonwake we believe there is a beer out there for everyone and we’re excited to reach a new selection of people by brewing a style of beer that is new for us to make.
This is also the third continental-style special we have brewed with a Moonwake twist. Our Kölsch and our award-winning Weissbier which both feature the Kiwi hop Wai-iti for their dash of New Zealand flair.
