Sly Fox Royal Weisse

I only have a few more reviews left and then I’m completely updated, which means that I can have some new review beer during the second half of the Giants game. It’s weird being in a house by myself. Usually, I’m in a house where there is constant noise. But, I’m at my sister’s today and she just left for a concert, so it’s actually odd being in such a quiet house. Plus, I haven’t really talked to Katie a lot since she’s at work, which sucks. But, I’ll get to see her tonight. So, here’s another brew that she got for me.

ABV: 5.4%

Style: Hefeweizen

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “An unforgettable Bavarian style Wheat Beer brewed with German Pils and Wheat malts and hopped with German Northern Brewer hops. This beer is unfiltered and served in a traditional wheat beer glass at our pubs. Medium bodied, tan in color, fruity”

Random: I hate when teams ice the kicker. It rarely ever works and just makes the game drag.

Again, I’m using the wrong glass. Oh well, I’ll deal with it. The beer poured with a one finger head that was pure white and dissipated quickly, leaving no lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy, golden orange color with heavy carbonation visible throughout. The nose was pretty pungent. I got orange, lemon, wheat and pronounced banana. The taste was almost exactly the same as the nose (lemon, banana, wheat) and some spice thrown in as well. The banana was dominant in the taste, but it reminded me a lot of banana laffy taffy, which I’m not a huge fan of. The spice was a little bit too mute. The body was heavier than I’m used to for the style and the carbonation was intense. The finish was relatively quick with banana. This wasn’t the best hefe that I’ve ever had, but it was definitely drinkable.

Untappd Rating: 3.0/5.0
