Burnley ..... usually wet !!
Last night it was my Black Sheep clone and I said to myself 'I think that's the best beer I've ever made' , also had a few Irish Red Ale (Greg Hughes) that is ok I think it will benefit from a long conditioning time

Weizenbock by @pilgrimhudd :

TLDR: Nailed it 👍🍻

20201127_212744.jpg


First Impressions - Bubblegum aroma leaps out the bottle! Decent head on pouring - it didn't stick around so well but lacing was pretty good.

Colour - Dark reddish-brown

Aroma - Bubblegum

Carbonation and mouthfeel - Carbonation is probably a bit low for the style (I'm guessing) but absolutely spot on for me, not too gassy. Pretty substantial mouthfeel.

Taste - I get bubblegum (rather than banana or clove that you might expect) followed by some really nice fruity esters, all supported by a firm malty backbone. There's an impression of sweetness but I think it comes from the esters rather than the malt. But in any case there's enough alcohol to cut through it.

Overall - BJCP says "A strong, malty, fruity, wheat-based ale" and that's exactly what this beer is. Even though I'm not familiar with the style, a class act like this speaks for itself. It's full, it's rich, it's warming - it's a perfect beer to sip on a cold winter evening 👍🍻

Nice one, glad you liked it! Quite please with it myself but, like you, unsure of how it compares with others of the same style.

Now wheres the review of my pumpkin ale? 😁

Is your recipe on you brewday thread? I like the idea of bubblegum in a wbock so I am curious what yeast you used.

Onto the boil for the Vienna lager, so time for a break. Lots of cleaning and bottling already done.

Oh westmalle I love your banana and clovey aroma. Such a nice autumn beer.
