Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%
Notes / Commercial Description:
Our head brewer James Taylor* was given the club’s challenge: brew a high gravity Hefeweizen while tempering the typical clove and banana notes. He began with a healthy amount of Bohemian Saaz hops, and a grain bill of equal parts malted barley & wheat berries. Then he swapped the German Wizen yeast in favor of an English Ale yeast, better suited for a barley-wine. The result is a complex yet delicate beer with a soft mouthfeel which warms yet doesn’t overpower. We like to think of this beer as sort of a cross trainer between the classic unfiltered wheat style and a barley-wine ale.
*(Yes he does play acoustic guitar)
