This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma.

On tap at a seafood joint in New Orleans.

A-a hazy dark golden appearance (obviously unfiltered) with a skimming of white head with significant lacing

S-pure German pilsner malt with noble spicy hops

T-clean and crisp like a pils should be

M-given this is a higher ABV pils the mouthfeel is right-significant but not overwhelming. Carbonation is average

O-a solid easy drinking Big sassy pils. Plenty of malt a bit lingering havy in the finish but definitely a solid brew

22oz bottle served in a mug
Nice golden yellow in the glass with a near pure white head that retreats to a layer of small bubbles. The smell is of sweet malt and bread with a bit of spicy hop character in the background, a touch of fruity ester comes through as well. The taste follows the smell with a base of clean and slightly sweet pale malt. The hops are restrained but definitely present with great noble hop spice and grassy flavors. The carbonation is somewhat low to moderate and the finish of this beer is almost very clean leaving just a bit of sticky hop flavor and malt. Overall this isnt a world class german pilsner but it is a pretty good american made example of the style and the cause benefited by sales of this beer make it well worth it.
