COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
And so the Three Wise Men set out from the East bearing gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. Along the Way, they followed a bright light. The Bible neglects to mention if they brought beer or not. Who goes crossing the desert without beer? How smart are we to believe these wise men were? Since Christmas is the season of gift giving more than receiving, please be a giver and share the Wisdom found in each and every bottle of our Gift of the Magi.

weihenweizen (2019) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2015
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle corked at capped 2013 poured into a Trappist glass. Hazy amber with small off-white head. Aroma is dark fruit, medium body, medium carbonation, and thin small-bubble lacing. Taste is rich caramel malt, some dark fruit, spice, yeasty, a little alcohol, and bitter hop finish. This was in the top 50 when I bought and has since dropped out of the top 50. Not that great.

Draft pour at mammoth. Pours a reddish color with a patchy, foam head. Dry, grainy aroma. Really dry flavor, with an empty finish. I suppose the beer isn’t so bad, but compared to the usual from these guys paired with my expectations, I’m a little disappointed. I’ll drink this again.
