River Horse Hefe Ryzen

I took this in a couple of months ago along with the other River Horse gear and had neglected posting on it. For no other reason than side tracked and pre occupied.
I re-lived the Hefe- Ryzen experience on Sunday.
Panned out in front of the box with Indiana Jones, 3 Easter eggs and a bottle of Casa Patronales Reserva Cabernet. I had forgotten about this little gem buried behind a head of lettuce. David, in search of a beer discovered the Brewer's Reserve. He is now a fan along with myself and hopefully the Beer Club when I put it up on tasting Thursday week.
Despite the non de-script label, the liquid on the inside more than makes up.
It pours a merky golden colour with a nice creamy head.
The nose is ripe banana, wheat, spice and slightly caramelised aromas.
The palate has good weight, creamy mouth-feel, ripe fruit with an off dry finish.
We only had one bottle so I sacrificed, stuck with the wine and allowed Dave to hum his way through the 330mls.
Available to taste in store April 15th,
Available to purchase everyday,
