COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first brew from our side project The Mash Collective is a rumweizen called Amasia. For this single batch, we’ve taken a classic German dunkleweizen and mashed it together with molasses, the core ingredient of a popular local spirit. Blended with some brew house magic, we finished it off with a splash of rum. Think fresh local bananas, loaded with rum and raisin ice cream and dark chocolate with the lingering warmth of a fine spirit.

500ml bottle. Dark tea like colour with a big soft head of tan foam. Lots of spice in the aroma with a faint hint of rum in background, also a bit of honey in the aroma as well. Full in the mouthing a nice smooth mouthfeel and again there I that hint of rum hiding in the background. This is a good beer and deceptively easy to drink.

Poured a deep red brown colour with a thick beige coloured foamy head that faded moderatley quickly. Aroma of sweet molasses as is the taste. Medium body that finished slightly sweet. Quite a good beer!

Tap Albion Hotel, Newcastle Murky orange/amber looking beer, head doesn’t hold so well. Aroma is somewhat muted. Prominant molasses, some dried fruits, faint overly ripe fruit esters. Carbonation kinda low for the style, alcohol adds body and slickness. Lacks the creaminess that a good weizen should have. Once again that molasses character dominates the flavour profile. Some orange and dried fruit sort of character, hint of spice. Finishes slightly sweet, some alcohol twang. Whilst not a bad beer, really doesn’t achieve what it sets out to do, ie, misses the mark as a dunkelweizen, and doesn’t really have much rum character to speak of. If it were labelled as a Belgian Dubbel, things might be different.

Pours a burnt brown colour. Smells as it is described, like a weizen mixed with a shot or two of spiced rum. Taste has some subtle caramel notes but is mostly a fairly run of the mill weizen.

Bottle. Hazy reddish brown pour with a foamy beige head that lasts a while. Aroma is sweet and mildly spicy with notes of chocolate, banana, toffee, cinnamon, nutmeg and raisins. Spices are even more prominent in the flavour and the molasses comes through a bit more, while the fruit is toned down and the malt notes are still assertive but a little less sweet. Mouthfeel is light and dry, especially for the style, with moderate carbonation and a lingering sweet, spicy finish. Not a bad effort overall, it’s nice and easy to drink although it feels like it could be tightened up a bit to make it really impressive.
