Muskoka Brewery Winter Weiss – Dunkelweizen at 5% ABV

Muskoka Brewery Winter Weiss Dunkelweizen at 5% ABV (C$3.46 at NLC Stavanger, 473 ml, best before 14-Feb-2016, reviewed 25-Nov-2015)

Appearance: hazy medium to deep amber with a short, short-lived thin light tan head, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: muted, cloves, banana, woody and smokey, corn and wheat malt. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, light tart. (5/10) Palate: medium-light body tending to the watery, moderate-low carbonation, clean mildly bitter finish. (3/5)

A deeply unremarkable example of the style. Not unpleasant, but thin and boring – certainly it doesn’t have the “deep brown” or “malty richness” promised by the commercial description. Not much more to say about this – buy it if you’re in the mood for a dunkel and there are no other options, I guess? (10/20)
