MOUNTAIN GOAT HOPFWEIZENBOCK

Mountain Goat Hopfweizenbock. This is a collaboration between Mountain Goat and Brooklyn Brewery.

It’s a Weizenbock which is a strong German wheat beer. The twist is they dry hopped it with Aussie Galaxy hops (2g/L). On the malt front it’s mostly wheat malt with a little bit of Munich and Chocolate malt. It’s brewed with a classic German wheat beer yeast (from Weihenstephan), which adds some fruity and spicy characters.

Opaque honey colour with a fine head. Strong banana aroma, like you’d expect in any Weizen. Smooth mouthfeel, moderate carbonation with a banana and strong bubblegum flavour.

After these initial sweet flavours there is a bit of an earthy flavour followed by a firm bitterness. It’s quite strange.  I would describe it as being like a cross between a Weizen and a Belgian ale with a bitter hop finish.

It’s different but nothing ground breaking.

 

6/10
