**Astute readers may notice that the Hefe became 'Crystal Weiss'. This is not some clever moniker dreamed up by the marketing monkey, but actually a reflection of the Kiwi Kiwi 2013 filtering process. If the marketing monkey were to tagline it, it might be "same great taste, no haze." Not gonna do it. It's delicious and can speak for itself.
