Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

La Petite Mort is a Belgian inspired Weissenbock brewed as a one off collaboration between The Local Option and Central Waters Brewery in Amherst, Wisconsin. When Central Waters decided to open its brew house for its first collaboration beer, Chicago’s Local Option was the obvious partner in crime. The resulting brainchild, La Petite Mort - a Belgian inspired Weissenbock – maintains the traditional characteristics of its Bavarian forbearer, with the added complexity of Belgian ale yeast. La Petite Mort is dark amber in color; maintains a rich, full-bodied mouth-feel augmented by caramel; mild and dark fruit.

Served in a Grieskirchner weizen glass at Local Option.

After enjoying Dampf Loc, I'm looking forward to trying this collab. It pours a hazy burnt sienna topped by about two fingers of cream-white foam. The nose comprises banana, clove, dark wheat, and some light brown sugar. Delightful. The taste brings in more of the same, but with more brown sugar and some cinnamon, creating a decent amount of sweetness that works in this beer. The body is a straight medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a smooth, lightly grainy feel. Overall, a very nice weizenbock, indeed. These Local Option boys gotta keep the recipes comin'...
