Muskoka Brewery Pair of Wise Guys (Moonlight Kettle Series) – Weizenbock at 7.5% ABV

Muskoka Brewery Pair of Wise Guys (Moonlight Kettle Series) Weizenbock at 7.5% ABV (C$4.05 at Collective, 473 ml, best before 24-Mar-2019, acquired 13-Feb-2019, reviewed 17-Apr-2019)

Appearance: clear deep amber with one fat finger of rocky ivory head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: big banana, doughy yeast, brown sugar, cloves, light bubblegum. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, mild bitter spicy warming finish. (4/5)

A nice little Weizenbock tending slightly to the lighter end of the ABV scale in my experience, but with loads of pleasant flavour regardless. I’m constantly surprised by this style, which despite being completely about the malt and yeast, with essentially no hop character, consistently ranks among my favourites. This one is no exception, with an almost banana bread character and a mild spicy warming finish. (16/20)
