My interpretation of a typical Bavarian wheat, refined with a little bit more hops and the intense aroma of our very own wheat beer yeast. Bold and surprising.
Typical but yet so different. Deep cassis notes mix with Oriental spices and create a fruity, spicy finish.

I invite you to enjoy a refreshing treat for all your senses.

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle at Zapfhahn Bamberg. Hazy reddish amber colour lasting near white head. New world hoppy aroma. Grapefruit. Tastes like a weizenbock made with new world hops. Some dirty earthiness on aroma and flavour. Some sweetness in the mouth. Some bitterness on the finish. weizenbock eaters banana last throughout. Just not sure I want this mix of old and new. Or if it works. Sweetness lasts through to the finish.
