Brewery: Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan website
ABV: 7.7 % Abv
How served: 500ml capped bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada wheat beer glass.
I paired this beer with: a bag of Stacy’s Simply Naked Pita Chips, yummy!!!
Tasted on: Sunday May 8, 2011
Notes: The beer poured a cloudy light gold with a massive 5 finger white head on a very slow pour. The foam hung around for a longtime leaving a nice lacing on my glass.
The nose was of bananas, cloves, bubblegum and citrus.
The taste was of spicy pepper and cloves, banana and coriander as well as wheat bread; this beer was crisp and refreshing.
The mouthfeel of a medium body with some nice warmth from the alcohol.
The drinkability of excellent.
This is one of the best Weizenbocks I’ve tasted & will be looking forward to enjoying a few more as we head into the summer months. Prost!
