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.

This was the second beer of our Snobs United Tasting.

It poured a murky, dirty medium brown with a small foamy head. Surprisingly not too big of a head on this one.

Nose is really spicy, cloves, nutmeg and the sort with some chocolate and starch fruit such as plantain and banana.

Taste pretty similar to Aventinus. Far form being as perfect as Aventinus, but still lots of good flavors. Chocolate, banana, cloves, a heavy dose of wheaty malts and some nice yeast to support the flavor and the body. Medium bodies with a nice creamy carbonation and a decent amount of sediment.

Good job Mr. Rue

This is why we love you so much!!!

From 03/26/14 notes. Poured from a 750ml bottle into my Bruery tulip.

a - Pours a deep brown color with a light reddish tint, one finger of light tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Spotty lacing on the glass.

s - Smells of bready malts, grains, bananas, dough, wheat, yeast, spices, and light sour fruits. Quite nice, ther light sourness is pretyt good.

t - Tastes of bready malts, bananas, yeast, spices, biscuit, toasted malts, caramel malts, cloves, and wheat. More bananas as it warms and than the nose had. Better than the nose in my opinion.

m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Slightly too carbonated.

o - Overall an interesting German style beer and pretty nice. Nothing mind blowing but quite good. Worth checking out.

750mL acquired through the Reserve Society. Bottled 11/14/13. Served in a Bruery snifter.

Pours dark, muddy brown with a thick, fluffy three fingers of vanilla-hued head. The froth lingers before settling to a thin cap that leaves very little lace.

Smells earthy and dry with burnt sugar glaze, faint yeasty clove and mild bannana peel. A bit muted overall.

Taste is luckily quite a bit livelier than the nose and reminds of a doppelbock. Caramel, bananna bread, faint toffee, clove, hints of raisin, butterscotch, wheat toast and a little nip of booze. This is a fairly hearty beer with some good flavor going on and easy enough to drink.

Medium body with carbonation that is active without overpowering . Bananna, clove and caramel are present in a clean finish.

I think this may be the first weizenbock I've had but it is strikingly similar to doppelbocks with the notable addition of banana and clove flavors. All-in-all a tasty enough brew that makes me think I may want to delve a little deeper into the style at some point in the future.
