COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Name changed to Dancing Trout as of 2007. Trout Slayer is called "Crystal Weizen" in Bavaria and is the filtered version of our Bayern Hefeweizen and has a more pronounced wheat flavor and a golden color. Bayern's Trout Slayer is hopped moderately with Hallertauer Perle (Germany), the alcohol content is 5.6% alc./volume. We use malted wheat, two-row Harrington Pale and caramel malt (14° Plato o.g.). Technically speaking, you could call this beer an ale because it is top-fermented. However, this beer has been cold fermented and the maturation time is as long as lager beer (a full 28 days instead of 8-10 days like an ale).

Bottle from trade rated using backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy yellow gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have wheat malt, mild sweetness, light caramel, mild citrus, yeast, fairly clean. Not too bad for what it is.

Best by: Dec, 2011 A: pours yellow golden with less than a finger of off-white foam which immediately falls to a sheet of the same with bordered rim. excellent clarity. No lace. S: Sweet and malty with some banana esters and some wheat tones. Really nice for the style. T: Again, sweet, with malts and wheat tones. Again, some banana esters. Some corn tone as well. M: Light bodied with moderately light carb with a semi dry finish. O: Good beer. Really sessionable, would love to see this one in a can. Serving type: bottle 05-18-2012

12floz/355ml bottle to a Blue Moon glass. Served cold. Aroma: Pretty yeasty and malty. Not much going on. Maybe the teeniest tiniest hint of spice. Appearance: Translucent, slightly hazy bright yellow body with a small-moderate white head. Pretty nice lacing. Taste: Interesting. Bready, a tiny bit of spice, but there’s this flavor I just can’t place. It may be yeast, but it may be kind of fruity. Palate: Light bodied, slightly watery. Short, malty finish. Overall: Pretty decent brew. Nothing makes it particularly memorable, or remarkable, but it’s in no way a bad beer.

Bottle to shaker. Poured a gold color. Smell is wheat, buiscuity, malt. Taste is light and simply. Ok beer, too simple though.

Thanks to IBrew2or3 for a 12oz of this one. Cheers, Dave! Pours a somewhat hazy yellow-orange with a small white head. Nose is sweetness- I get grain, and I am thinking corn, too. There is also some slight fruitiness. Flavor is similar- sweetness to the point that makes me think about corn, slight banana, and slight grain. A bit syrupy in the palate with some mild bitterness into the finish.

One of my favorite beers. I poured one this evening after a workout and it’s going down smooth. I adore the aroma of this beer - so rich. Initially, to me, it tastes slightly bitter but follows with honey and caramel. This would be one of my favorite aftertastes in the wide world of brew. It’s a cold winter evening in Montana and I’m settling in.

12 ounce bottle from a sampler pack. Pours a golden color with a half inch white head that slowly fades. Taste is of malt, caramel, honey and some hops. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a clean finish. Easy to drink and enjoyable. Worth picking up again.

Bottled. Poured near-clear medium golden with a short white head. The aroma picked up semi-sweet honey above all else, with some earthy wheat in there too.. just a touch peppery and fruity.. soft and well-balanced. The flavor opened with tangy wheat and a touch of orange zest.. honey and pale malts supported the core, with tasty honey carrying through the peppery, yeasty finish.. tasty stuff. Light-bodied and effervescent on the palate.. almost too sweet, but it stayed refreshing.. good stuff.
