Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: CheapBeerBuzz on 12-10-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

Pours hazy rust color with 1/2 inch of khaki head that fades to nothing and leaves very faint lace.

Smell is of funky yeast, caramel and a fruity mixture of banana and apple.

Taste is of bready malt, molasses, caramel, banana, apple and a hint of cinnamon and clove spiciness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

This is a solid effort that has characteristics similar to those of a Belgian quad with the addition of winter spices reminiscent of a Christmas ale.

Served cold, I held this one upside down for a bit prior to the pour, unsure of the traditional base that is. The Shegoat pours a deep brown and a light mahogany in the light with a decent cap of foam. Good depth to the aroma though a bit lacking in the taste department. Quite hoppy up front with some muddled caramel notes and with a firm carbonation, as it should be I say.

Touch of alcohol on the nose, light banana and a hint of clove spice, light caramel is muddled well.

This 'German Style Ale' has no flaws per se but alas an interesting yet average
