Style: Kellerbier / Zwickelbier

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly PILZILLA.

Pilzilla is a beer that I've been brewing for years. Each year it gets bigger and bigger. Nicknamed "The beer that took over Tokyo". It is an unfiltered Keller Bier. Nicley hopped at this point with 6 to 7 different kinds of hops and about 6.25 % ABV Each year we will add another variety of hop and bump the alcohol a bit. This is not your average pilsner, get it before we drink it all! Prost!!

Another instance of the classic "oh, this is a rock-solid beer, I wonder how strong it is...Woah! I expected half of that." Like I said, rocksolid and exotic take on the style

The 7.5% and 8-hop variety, poured from a bottle into a tulip. Noses like a German wheat beer (hops, hefeweizen wheat). Pours a faintly hazy dark straw (almost honey) with a half finger white head rapidly rising and receding. The palate is much more akin to a kellerbier (or even somewhere between a hefeweizen and a dunkel) - definitely a far cry from a lager or pilsner (and that's a very good thing). Also, impressively, a beer that avoids the body issues of the other Voodoo brews. Like Hoodoo, this beer is staunchly light-medium, and does not have the underbodied dilemma of almost all of Voodoo's stouts. Overall, a great hybridization of styles resulting in a crisp, drinkable, interesting beer. Solid.

poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip. no freshness dating could be find.voodoo website claims this beer is year round, but doesn't seem to get reviewed very often here

pours a hazy yellow orange with an initial 1 inch white head, which fades to a thick ring and thin film

virtually nothing on the nose except a little malt.

taste is quite bitter. apparently uses 8 varieties of european hops.. there is a pleasant pepperiness around the edge of the tongue.

feel is around medium. bitterness really persists.

overall, an okay beer. quite high abv at 7.5, but this is well hidden.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The bottle cap is a very cool solid pine green color. The beer pours a murky golden yellow and has a small white head. The aroma is a nice blend of hops and a floral scent. The flavor is nice and hoppy with some citrus tossed in. I found this to be a really good Kellerbier.
