Another Mikkeller beer and a very excited beer lover waiting anxiously to try it. This one was made possible from the great people up at the Charleston Beer Exchange. I have to get up there one day to see their fin establishment. I was sort of confused when I opened the bottle, poured it into my Dogfish snifter glass, and got a big whiff of hops. Seeing the word hefenweizen on the bottle I expected a more citrus/fruity aroma to, but being a IPA lover I wasn’t disappointed in the least. The color was a very dark gold with brown tints. The aroma, as I mentioned before, was very hoppy with citrus/grapefruit notes as well. The carbonation was excellent, as was the head retention. With a ABV at 8% it’s not too big and not too small, just at the perfect place where you could have a few and still be satisfied.

Tried the series altogether. Was expecting banana notes in this which I didn’t really seem to pick up on, mainly got light cloves and some citrus notes. Didn’t do a lot for me this one but great to try the series in a lineup.

Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours reddish copper with a nice beige head and a light fruity aroma. There is a robust carbonated caramel malt flavor with fruit and a dry bitter finish. Not at all like a standard hefe.

Perfect amber colour, big hop driven aroma which is quite complex with pineapple and rich malt. There is an unusual ester profile which I can only attribute to the combination of big American hops and hefe yeast. It’s a very interesting beer, I would be interested in trying the rest in the series.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2010
11.2 oz. bottle, relatively fresh. The pour yields a dark and hazy, rusty reddish-brown body. A thick, foamy, cream colored head holds strong, ramping up at the edges and leading into dense columns and ribbons of hard lacing. The nose is very hoppy, showing sharp citrus and dusty, peppery floral notes the clash with sweeter banana. Clove is prominent and spicy, just like in a Hefe, though the onset of dry, bretty yeast seems a mismatch. Malts are bready, toasty, and caramelized, and somewhere in there I get hints of grilled pineapple. Flavors largely follow suit, giving a wide range of conflicting elements that just don’t come into focus for me. Is it a bretty Belgian ale? Is it an IPA? Is it a spicy, gummy imperial Hefeweizen? I don’t know what to call it, but I know the sweet bread, toast, spicy clove-pepper, rustic brett, and citrusy, fruity hops just don’t work together. I really think it’s the bubblegum-banana Hefe yeast that fouls things up. The palate is flabby and nearly lifeless, as light carbonation and dry brett intensify on the spicy, bitter finish. Not my thing. Frankenstein in a bottle.
