COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Twenty years ago, Highland opened its doors in a town otherwise bereft of breweries. Ournname anchors us here – “Highland” honors Asheville’s Scots Irish heritage. In a final salute to our 20th anniversary, we present the 20th beer in the series: our limited edition, 20thAnniversary Weizenbock.

Pause to take in the aromas of clove and banana. Wheat, barley, and chocolate rye create complex malt flavors, accented by a hint of spiciness. "Just a wee bit different," our rendition of this lesser-known style is approachable and beautifully suited to the season.

Bottle at Bob’s Bar during "Extravaganza!" on 02/27/2016. The beer is a clear amber-orange color with a medium foamy white head that recedes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, spice and banana. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, banana and cloves. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

sebletitje (10539) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2015
Bomber from Total Wine, Tampa. Ambrée-cuivrée, col crémeux beige. Arôme offr eun bouuet allemand plaisant, note levure en rétro, fruité noir, léger malt Munich, Vienna et froment. Note biscuitée sur qcq effluves ester levure donnant une pointe de banane. Palais est léger, présente un côté malté épais venant du malt froment, levure et ester, avec une fine pointe d’amertume restant dans un style noble. Retrouve un fruité noir modéré qui se balance bien avec le profil de la levure. Ok sans pour cela être exceptionnelle, j’attendais plus de Highland.
