COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our new winter seasonal, Primus (pronounced, "pre moose"), is a dark, rich German-style Weizen beer (beer made with wheat malt) fermented with a very particular strain of brewers’ yeast that gives this beer it’s unique spicy and fruity character. The unfiltered beer has the characteristic clove and banana flavors familiar to HefeWeizen drinkers but with a darker and richer roasty malt character that is typical of some German-style Bock beers. Available November - January

notalush (4795) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Tap at Craft and Growler - I really like their hefe, and this didn’t disappoint, either - creamy texture, full in the mouth - quite dry for the strength, with flavors of nutty malt, white pepper, clove, nutmeg - some sweetness arrives late, a bit live brown sugar - finish of tart baked apples - really nice.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 5, 2014
Brown bodied, smooth head. Soft roasted, sweaty clove y yeast, wheat creaminess, bubbly yet pleasant carbonation. Fairly sweet but drinkable so and enough roasted malt backup. Pretty nice and true to the style except perhaps a bit too murky but I don’t mind that. Smooth drinkable autumn drinker. (On tap at The Liberty Tavern Austin)

On tap at Ginger Man Fort Worth. Definitely smells like a wheat. The taste surprised me. Sweeter than I was expecting.

llcooldave (1072) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Cloudy leathery brown in color. Spicy clove and cinnamon flavors followed by slight citrus hops note. This is kinds like a Christmas cake type thing. Overal, a solid holiday brew. Thanks Kevin for sharing!

zmanzorro (128) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2013
On tap in a point glass. Pours a hazy brown color with a thin white head and no lacing. Aroma is mostly banana esters coming from the hefeweizen yeast. Taste is also pretty strong on the banana flavor with some hop bite upfront. Also a little sweet. Average carbonation with a slight lingering pucker.

Beerenberger (1377) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Aroma is Beligian yeast and spice. Pours a very cloudy unfiltered dark amber with a mostly diminishing off white head and spotty lacing. The taste is much like the nose. Overall mildly sweet. Hints of spice and banana. Medium body soft carbonation. Overall, not very pretty, but very enjoyable. I would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (7659) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Sample at Hay Merchant in Houston. This beer is a murky ruddy amber color with a medium creamy off-white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Bananas and toasted malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of banana, caramel malt and a bit of chocolate. The finish is sweet with a banana aftertaste. Decent overall.
