Formerly brewed at Brooklyn Brewery
, New York
The first beer of the Brewmaster’s Reserve line, this beer was brewed from a completely different set of malts than our other two weissebeers. Weyermann Pilsner and Munich malts from Germany were blended with malted wheat to create a beer with a slightly sweet, almost candied center, backed up by toffee and bread. The aroma is full of banana with a touch of cloves and malt. Technically, this beer is a "weissedoppelbock"; large amounts of malt were used, bringing its strength up to 8.2% by volume. After a warm fermentation, the beer was cooled and held in conditioning for five weeks to round it out to a fine smoothness.
