Braupakt Hefe Weissbier
As I sit here and watch the 2018 German Masters Dart Competition (no shit, I'm not kidding you, and you should see the size of the crowd!), I decided to check out Freising, Germany's Weihenstephaner Braupakt Hefe Weissbier. This is a collaboration beer with Sierra Nevada. Fun label art. 11.2oz bottle. 6.0% alcohol.
Braupakt's aroma is full of bananas and cloves, a little fruity and hoppy as well. Flavors are similar, banana and spicy clove, tangy wheat. Refreshing, hoppy, citrus bitter balance follows, also a little spicy.
Tangy, sweet and bitter play off each other very nicely. Sierra Nevada's input into this beer is obvious. Nice lingering spice and bitterness. Very tasty beer!
