A. Pours a deep ruby brown with a beautiful two finger khaki colored head. Retention is outstanding with a big creamy ring of froth lasting through the session. Each swirl builds the foam back up. Lacing is equally thick and coating.
S. Freshly baked bread, orange zest, pumpernickel, lots of cherry and fig, brown sugar, molasses, and even some red wine.
T. Hearty bread crust, stone fruit, hints of chocolate, clove, banana, pear. Very malty and complex.
M. Low to moderate carb with a wonderfully complex flavor profile. It's big and it's sweet, but the alcohol is very well hidden and it has a great balance.
O. It's not particularly distinctive other than its all around excellence. It's a beautifully done weizenbock and hits every note in high form. It's a rounded yet complex example of the style, with bright fruit, phenol, and banana notes and a toasty malt bill. Very very enjoyable, and a cool experiment by the Bruery in revisiting Patrick's homebrew recipes. Would love to see what other things they can recreate from his cookbook.

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
