Impression:  I’d had their fairly hoppy Sommerweizen that afternoon and this Weizenbock in bottled form a year or so prior, so I was expecting it to be in the same vein. This tap version has surely been tweaked quite a bit as I didn’t notice much of the hoppiness of its predecessor. In its place was a wonderful dried fruit element in the form of dried orange and some caramel for good measure. It was easy to drink at 6.8% and fit well how I was drinking it, as a dessert beer. Still,  I think as a beer to drink more than one, I’d prefer the bottled one.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
