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.

12oz bottle into a wheat glass awhile back. This was a solid brew and a pretty good example of the style.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Sudsy and rather quick, ecru head over a light hazed copper body with some larger yeast chunks in suspension (moreso nearing the end of the bottle). Aroma is mostly caramel malt, slightly stale, without much else besides a whiff of vanilla-hued pale malt late. Flavor finds big caramel with a hint of banana along with a shaving of metallica, finishing with an obvious clunk of pure sugar and dirt. A mid-bodied palate does little to suspend what little this beer has to offer. Maybe this aged too long (based on the previous rating), but.... I like to age beers. Is that so wrong? ~~~~~~~~~ Bottle of unknown origin. Consumed July 2009.

BuckeyeSammy (537) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2009
If you have one a bottle left over, OPEN IT RIGHT NOW, this beer is peaking. Aroma of bananas, wheat, even some caramel. Similar flavor, extremely balanced. Sweet malt, dough, butterscotch, mild spice.. Great beer!

sleepylopes (318) - New York, USA - MAY 7, 2009
all old people candy in the nose, (cooked butterscotch and clove gum) sweet and enveloping . light but rich mouth feel with some lingering sweet super mild spice. taste is toasted grain and worthers originals background. I wish grandpa always had one in his pocket.

7-3-08 bottle shared with lb4lb thanks to IowaHerkeye (thanks Joey)
Semi clear amber. Smell is sour and funky. Flavor is funky dough that has a strange sweetness here. High carbonation in the body. Overall, not the biggest fan of this one.

Bottle in trade from IowaHerkeye. Thanks!
Pours amber with tons of floaties suspended throughout the beer. Fizzy white head. Smell is bright and off, like the beginning of an infection, perhaps. Otherwise, caramel and some wheat. Taste is oxidized, metallic and caramelly wheat. Overly fizzy body. Not very good.
