Weizenbock ~ Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

Appearance: a lovely orange, lighter along the edges, and topped with a generous off-white head – fading into a thick collar with spotty lace. Swirls bubbly but fades fast.

Nose: yeasty and doughy. Bananas and fuzzy orange fruits – nectarines and peaches. Aloe and cactus, white flower petals and stems. Tropical. Guava.

Palate: sweet up front then transitions into a summery tropical paradise. A bit mild. Banana peel, cactus, aloe – all in the back. Peach breads. Almonds. Dried apricots. Spicy yeasty dough. Grows a bit cloying. Spicy heat in the breath then dry straw and hay. Guava, aloe, and cactus.

Final Thoughts: it was alright and maybe it was just my mood but overall, rather underwhelming. Good but not worth seeking out again.
