Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Thanks, Abraham.

A dark brown with a dense, light brown head with solid retention and minimal lacing, this looks good. The nose is a blend of cocoa dusted dark caramel, overripe bananas, cloves, toffee, burnt sugar, a clean, grainy character and a little vanilla. Milk duds are also noticeable. Very nice.

The palate opens moderately fruity and with some caramel and brown sugar but there's a rather grainy, cracker like huskiness and mild tannins that strip off the sweeter flavors. A moderately intense and spicy clove note is present as well. The beer does fall apart toward the finish, ending up rather disjointed with an in cohesive blend of sweetness, spice and wateriness, lacking the grainy dextrins that could hold it all together. Decent stuff.
