COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper Kettle Weiss is designed in the traditional style of a dark wheat beer. Rich malt flavors are accentuated through our complicated decoction mash and finally balanced with select Hallertau hops.

Reviewed from notes: pours a nice amber color. Bready and floral on the nose. Floral and cereal like on the palate. This one is an interesting combo of flavors.

Copper color, white head. I get sugar cookies, toasted marshmallows, pound cake, light apple notes, pennies,and very very light floral hops. Ok.

TheEnemy (562) - Chicago, USA - JUL 21, 2010
12oz bottle.
Pours a dull murky dull auburn-brown with soda-like carbonation that forms a fizzy bubbly head. Aroma is a strange but not entirely unpleasant combination of tart yeast and brown sugar. Flavor is sweet brown-sugary malt, modestly bitter grassy hops, wheat bread, and a touch of honey. Palate is strangely thick and a bit cloying with chewy sweet finish. Really quite a boring beer, and rather a letdown considering the high praise and rating it’s garnered here on Ratebeer. Granted this bottle was about 5 years old and was not always stored in optimum conditions so that may have effected the taste. But I’ve had several similarly situated NG products that came through the ordeal tasting quite brilliant.

boomer0813 (100) - denton, Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2010
( 12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye). Poured a light hazy brown. Aroma was of banana, ginger, and a hint of chocolate. Flavor was fruity with sour cherry. Drinkable.

BelgianBeerGal (3201) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Traded 12oz bottle. Fine dunkelweiss but nothing spectacular. Clear, copper colour with a small white head and not lacing. Faint aroma of caramel. Flavour was more caramel malt and a slight sour twinge. Middle of the road mouthfeel.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2010
(12oz bottle) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, wheat, light apricot, nuts, clove, and basement. Flavor of wheat, caramel, citrus, and light clove with a dry finish.

GG (2064) - NorCal, California, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Pours out a light amber/light copper color with an initial 1" frothy cap. The head melted nearly immediately and the body is crystal clear. First aroma impressions are honey and apple juice with a light kick of alcohol. I swirled the last few ounces I left in the bottle and I got a murky rust color. The dustyness of the malts came on strong after the bottle swirl and the mouthfeel really improved. The crackers and fruit notes also really got kicked up a notch after the swirl. I know it’s nothing new but the beer really does improve with the dregs included in the beer.

thirdeye11 (5593) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2010
( 12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) pours murky brown with no head. Nose is metallic, alcohol, roasted malts and apple. Taste is lightly tart fruits, alcohol with a linger that is smooth and nicely sweet.

Courtesy of bu11zeye. Hazy brown color with a fleeting head. Big yeasty bready, toasted marshmallow aromas. Medium body. Light roasted malt, nutty flavors with mildly tart dark wheat bread.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a murky yellow with white fizzy head. Aroma is very malty, caramel and a little grainy. Flavor of malt and fruity esters. Mouth feel is light body. Overall, not bad.....Isn’t a "Dunkelweizen" supposed to be a dark wheat??? This does not seem like a Dunkelweizen....
