COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Braumeister Selekt. This Gordon Biersch creation applies Eisbock brewing techniques to a bock made primarily from malted wheat. Eisbock was produced using a technique created by a forgetful brewer from the Kulmbach Brewery in Kulmbach, Germany, who accidentally left kegs of bock beer outside during the coldest days of winter. Our modern-day process involves freezing the water molecules out of the brew and removing the frozen portion, thus concentrating the alcohol and flavor of the resulting ale.

Strong yet balanced, syrupy thick the alcohol blends well with the sweetness of the wheat and malt.

StefanSD (2070) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
750 ml bottle from a local grocery store. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head that soon recedes to a ring. The aroma is strong with banana, sweet malts and cloves. The flavor mirrors the aroma, lots of wheat flavors, banana, cloves and sweet malts. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and a bit numbing. Overall: a decent Weizenbock.
