COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schottleweizen is a brand new seasonal release named in honour of Ben featuring a dark malt base, a generous dose of hops brought to life with Belgian-inspired saison yeast. It’s lively, moderately sweet, and a little bit unconventional – just like Ben.

ljthiessen (511) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle. Very dark pour, nearly black, with virtually no head. Aroma is like a Belgian strong dark, very malty with lots of dark fruits and yeast, plus a touch of hefeweizen spice. Flavour is fairly rich, fruity and yeasty with a lightly tart note at the finish. A lot of alcohol warmth for the ABV; must be that Belgian yeast. Doesn't quite come together for me, but a bold attempt at something a bit different.

Oldschool_Mike (76) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear dark brown colour with very little head. Aroma is a bit of toastyness but mostly pepperyness from the yeast. Taste is pretty much the same with some nice effervescents. Nice dark saison. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

MunBro (511) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
Aroma of dark fruits and malts. Dark brown/black pour with no head or lacing. Flavour of roasted wheat and malts, chocolate, dark fruits etc. Balance is off so knocked some points.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle, shared at the lake with Parksy, May long weekend. Very dark brown with golden highlights and a robust off white head. Banana, light phenols, light molasses. More sweet than spice.

Lagerboy (1326) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Bomber. Clear darker copper, creamy tan foam eventually fades. Aroma of wit spices, yeast, banana and caramel. Sweet fruity toasted caramel wit malt taste, mildly spiced, some citrus and an odd tartness. Average carbonation, medium bodied, low hopped. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

pintbypint (2696) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2014
650ml brown bottle. Brown pour, long lasting beige head. Lots of creamy lace. Nose has elements of chcoolate malt, roasted malt and cloves/spice. Taste has chocolate, roast and nut notes, some lemony notes. Cocoa in the finish, yeasty, some bitterness. Body a bit light, carbonation ok. Interesting twist on a dunkleweizen, but doesn’t hold my interest for the whole bottle.

On tap @GarricksHeadPub. Muddy brown with frothy head. Toasted wheat with brown sugar, cocoa, bananas, ground pepper, general funk. Flavourful, lightly sweet and boozy. Crisp bitterness on a dry finish.

Gerbeer (1995) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with moderate head of big bubbles that settle quickly. Aromas of raisins, dates, and big phenol/resin. Fruity marzipan malty flavor with a dose of cloves and dried bananas. Sweet and odd.
