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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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 (561 characters)
