Our Own Bavarian-Styled Doppel Weizen

Today I'm drinking Our Own Bavarian-Styled Doppel Weizen brewed by Lagunitas Brewing Company in Petaluma, California. The label is busy. Prominently on the label is a tall glass of (presumably) this beer. I did my best to replicate that in my own picture. I didn't get quite the head, but that's probably because I was scared of overflow.

The front continues, "This Special Brew Was Designed By Our Freistaat Bayern Brothers Who Also Built The Brewhouse Upon Which We Brewed It". The side label continues about drinking a Prima Pils and talking about this new brewhouse in 2006. Something about old, dead, (I think) Greek guys, too. You just go ahead and read it below. OG 1.084 IBU 34.20 ALC 9%.

OK. So are you ready? The aroma is awesome. I really want to marry it! Candied bananas, spicy cloves, yeasty with a boozy aura! Yeah! Now that's what I'm talkin' about!

Spicy flavors are very prominent at the beginning. Spice, yeast, cotton candy and bananas all join hands and sing We Are The World together. Really, pure harmony. You may think it's a little sweet at first, but that's until you take a hefty alcohol punch that cuts the sweetness to pieces. Orange, lemon, lots of cloves and more alcohol bite. This is serious, and delicious.


The spiciness continues and some bubblegum flavors are ushered in on a yeasty wave. Boozy throughout. This beer has this zing. It's like, got this zing that is so enjoyable. It's got this tartish bang and zang and... OK. Good body. Good price. Really a nice beer. Perhaps bordering on overly alcoholic but that kinda worked with the overt sweetness, otherwise. Check it out. It's a Limited Release so grab one now.
