COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Never heard of the rarely seen, Bavarian-indigenous mammal the Wolpertinger? Well, much like the original Wolpertinger, our "Wolpie" is a little Bavarian in nature, scarcely seen and definitely difficult to define...taxonomically speaking. We define "Wolpie" (beer-style wise) as Winged Nut on Acid - A high ABV, chestnut beer fermented with a Bavarian Weissbier yeast strain. Stats: ABV - 7.3%, IBUs - 35, OG - 18.0 Plato.

on tap at braukunst munchen 2014. a bit of an oddity - reddish brown with a slender head; aroma of toffee and stonefruit; hints of vanilla and caramelised banana flavours, apparently from the weizen yeast; a fair bit of alcohol showing but in a warming way

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is fairly fruity with some light oak and grape notes coming through. The flavor is similar. I get some nutmeg and light cinnamon notes as well as some grape and brown sugar. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Taster on tap at Upland Sourfest. Totally hazy amber color. Thin white head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Nutty, earthy, spicy, citrusy aroma. Bigger spicy sour taste. Some yeastiness. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Decent oaky sour. Interesting, more fuller-bodied stuff. Light bit of vinous.

I dont know what to say here. Beer is probably good in its class because UC is good at what they do. Maybe i just dont like this type of beer.
