Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

This was the second beer of our Snobs United Tasting.

It poured a murky, dirty medium brown with a small foamy head. Surprisingly not too big of a head on this one.

Nose is really spicy, cloves, nutmeg and the sort with some chocolate and starch fruit such as plantain and banana.

Taste pretty similar to Aventinus. Far form being as perfect as Aventinus, but still lots of good flavors. Chocolate, banana, cloves, a heavy dose of wheaty malts and some nice yeast to support the flavor and the body. Medium bodies with a nice creamy carbonation and a decent amount of sediment.

Good job Mr. Rue

This is why we love you so much!!!

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
