BEER INFO

Brewed by:
High Point Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States
ramsteinbeer.com

Style: Weizenbock

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Rich creamy head with bouquet of Wheat malt, black current, clove, and apple. Deep full flavors of caramel and chocolate malt balance with hops for a smooth warming character. Smooth malt leads to a subtle alcohol and dark caramel finish. The wonderful balance of this beer provides a complex profile hiding the 9.5% alcohol content. The perfect companion for a cold winter night.

(on tap at Bridgewater's Pub - served in an Erdinger Weizen glass)

A: fairly clear, dark, air-dried blood crimson... tall stand of compact, creamy-spongy foam... the lack of retention was clearly due to the cleanliness of the glass - did spring up some foam which each big sip

S: invitingly bold dark fruit - plum, mainly - with a good bit of roasty grain poking through... bit of a leafy hop presence and mineral note... not terribly clove-y or yeasty-spicy

T: heavy on dark fruit flavors - kind of like a non-sweet plum or blackberry brandy... fair bit of hop and roast bitterness, though it's relatively mellow and merely serves to dry the beer out a bit... some vague background clove... not at all sweet as far as fruit flavors go and not terribly malty either, which is the biggest snag in its overall quality - would love to have a moderate, balancing doughy/bready flavor - not enough 'yeast' notes, otherwise a fantastic, explosive taste

M: a bit thin and lager-clean/crisp, but on par with what the aromas suggest

O: this tastes a good bit like my homebrew Weizenbock, this one obviously having more developed, dynamic character... really, all this needs is a meaty malt punch.... I would certainly drink this again, preferably in High Point's taproom
