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.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours amber with a small off white head. Light spice and chocolate in the aroma, rather sweet, has a hint of dark fruits and banana. The rum scent is noticable but rather faintly. Molasses and subtle spice dominates the flavour profile with some heavy banana and sticky sweetness. Very easy drinking. The rum could have come out a little more and this would have been a little more interesting. A good effort though

Red body with no head. Banana noticeable on the aroma, a touch of cinnamon alongside the banana in the taste, smooth and medium body.

Davros (2726) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2012
Pours hazy dark brown with a large, lasting head. Nose shows molasses, banana, clove and doughy wheat. No sign of the rum. Flavours include more doughy wheat, banana, and sweet molasses. Pretty much exactly as the aroma promises. Quite drinkable. Carbonation could be a little higher. The molasses makes for an interesting spin on the dunkelweizen style, personally I’d like to notice more of the rum.

Bottle from the Local Taphouse shop. Nice malty flavours. Aromas of caramel, nuts, and raisins, with tropical notes. Taste is sweet, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Red, with no head.

Muggus69 (2023) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 6, 2012
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.

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!

floydian1 (1339) - FNQ, Australia, - JUL 28, 2012
500ml bottle. Reddish-brown pour with a medium-sized collapsing white head. Nose is dark fruits, raisins, bananas, burnt sugar and a subtle musky spiciness like a dry dark rum. Flavour is medium sweet with those dark rum elements coming through at the end of the palate. Dry lingering finish but low bitterness. Medium-full body. An interesting brew for the adventurous but I gotta say that a prefer a straightforward Dunkelweizen.

Pyobon (1268) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2012
(bottle) The only thing that falls short of excellent is the appearance - it’s a cloudy coppery brown with a short-lived tan head - not very appealing. Lovely rich fruity aroma - mainly raisins with some banana and a nice spicey touch. Full bodied with a smooth creamy carbonation. Flavour starts with fruitiness, mainly raisins and develops complexity with esters and spice and sweetness with caramel. The finish has a mix of bananas and spice, but little bitterness. Overall a very impressive beer.
