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.

A - Very light coffee brown. Thick, three finger, khaki colored head with amazing retention.

S - Lots of cloves and wintery aromas. Slight fragrance of pepper and cinnamon. Lots of sweet, malty aromas. Smell yummy!

T - Very sugary and sweet. Lots of apple cider and cloves, a mulled cider if you will. Wheat, raw sugar, and caramel. Not the best balanced for my taste because of the sweetness, but if you enjoy Belgians this would be your brew.

M - Decent carbonation up front. Lots of aftertaste that leaves a tingle on the tongue.

O - Tastes more Belgian to me than German, but a very nice showing from The Bruery.

Pours a murky, dark, brown-amber color with a large, off-white head. Scent is very inviting, and spot-on for a weizenbock aroma. Nice balance of banana, clove, malt, and spices. The description of banana bread seems kinda ridiculous, but when you let this beer sit for a bit, you definitely get the banana bread. The taste compliments that statement as well. If this beer is too cold, you will get absolutely NO BANANA BREAD. Let this beer sit and warm up... you will definitely get some banana bread. Clove, banana, spices, and slightly tart yeasty flavors. This beer is absolutely delicious! Mouthfeel is full bodied, but fluffy at the same time. Drinkability is very high. Overall, I was very skeptical going into this one. Had the option of buying six, but only bought two. Big regret. Going back to buy four more. One of the best German-style beers I've had. They definitely hit this style right on the head. You've probably made my favorite German-style beer. Bravo Bruery!
