3.5/5 rDev -5.7%
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

4.08/5 rDev +10%
Poured from the bottle into a curved wheat ale glass.
Deep toffee and opaque brown body towards the bottom with dark chestnut red in the middle. Thick creamy faint tan cocoa brown head, large and four fingers tall with nice even bubbles, and very thin rising carbonation bubbles lifting slowly on the sides. Soft top and retention to go with it, classic looking Weizenbock.
Great simple nose. Light banana and toffee. Big clove spice coming off this with a little bit of heat too, which really brings out the dry spice qualities making them larger. And almost nutty quality comes out as well.
A noticeable bit of alcohol sweetness, but matching clove heat manages to dominate. Light bodied with not too much chewy wheat, but plenty of malt backbone and caramel like senses to keep the palate interesting. Hot nutmeg and clove spice but without burning heat. Some malted whoppers and dark grain toast on the finish as well, with that kind of dry sense.
Overall a very fun solid brew, missing some chewy qualities and noticeable caramel but a good beer in the realm.
