Style: Weizenbock

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.

A- Dark brown in color with ruby highlights. Persistent creamy/frothy tan head. Surprisingly murky for a lager.

S- Richy toasty/malty character that is unsurprising for a dopplebock. Some caramel character as well with dark fruits such as prunes and figs. Small amounts of alcohol apparent.

T- The rich malty character dominates from start to finish. Toasty malt comes through the strongest as the dark fruits apparent in the smell linger in the background. A nutty and toffee character is noticeable in the middle as the finish of the beer once again returns to the strong malt with small amounts of alcohol.

M- Medium-full body with a creamy carbonation and slight alcohol presence.

O- A great dopplebock. Missing some of the overall quality of the best dopplebocks, but still worth the money.

Served cold, I held this one upside down for a bit prior to the pour, unsure of the traditional base that is. The Shegoat pours a deep brown and a light mahogany in the light with a decent cap of foam. Good depth to the aroma though a bit lacking in the taste department. Quite hoppy up front with some muddled caramel notes and with a firm carbonation, as it should be I say.

Touch of alcohol on the nose, light banana and a hint of clove spice, light caramel is muddled well.

This 'German Style Ale' has no flaws per se but alas an interesting yet average
