Shegöat is a brand new beer to our lineup, based on one of Patrick’s original, multiple award winning homebrew recipes. Based primarily on the traditional weizenbock style of Germany, brewed with both malted barley and wheat, the beer is rich in the flavors of bananas, cloves and caramel with a notes of cake spice hovering in the background. Just like the banana bread that großmutter used to make.

Murky brown pour with ample head and lacing. Big aroma of banana, clove, plum, and other spice. Body is bigger than usual with a little booze showing (it’s one fault). Flavor is big too...similar to the aroma and just a bit heavier than is typical for the style. Cool to compare to Deschutes, who also just brewed a big Weizenbock. They get the nod, but this was damn good too

Bottle shared at chriso’s May 2014 tasting - London. Pours lightly hazy ruby-amber with a creamy white head. The aroma has toasted wheat, dough, banana and toffee. Medium sweet flavor with sugary candies, ripe banana, yeasty wheat, toasted sugars. Medium bodied with average carbonation and creamy texture. Lightly warming on the finish with sugary wheat bread, light caramel and more bruised bananas. Tasty w-bock.

Barreras (1367) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Pours a dark amber color with a banana aroma. Taste is of baked banana bread with a clean hops film left on the tongue. A minor spice and cloves flavor that gave in to the banana taste. I could not taste any sweet flavor but was pleasantly delighted with its mixture of flavor.

Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Very hazy reddish amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and crispy. Tangy caramel malts. Dried fruits. Whispers of brandy.and esters in the dry finish. Slightly odd but okay.

Scopey (10037) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle at Chriso, thanks to Kenny. It pours cloudy reddish-amber with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, brown bread, spice, bruised fruits, fruit cake, banana, apple and some tang. The taste is sweet, brown bread, clove rock, over-ripe banana, toasty,candied stuff, varnish and warming alcohol. Boozy finish. Medium+body and fine carbonation. Not much depth to it. So-so.
