Night Shift is getting increased distribution in this area. I picked up a four pack of these cans in Philly and was ridiculously excited to see it without making a drive up north. I first got to give their beers a shot when my parents brought some home for me from an antiquing trip in Massachusetts. They had no idea what they were bringing home for me, but they have fared pretty well in the blog.
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Named after a Bavarian city, this globally enjoyable hefeweizen sips with soft, fruity notes of banana, wheat, clove, and orange rind.”
Random: We just started watching the movie version of “Into The Woods” and Christine Baranski is in it. This makes me happy.
The beer poured with a half a finger of pure white head. It dissipated slowly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was shockingly clear for the style and straw yellow in color. It had a lot of carbonation visible. The nose had a lot of bubble gum and banana. Wheat came through as well. The taste started with banana and bubble gum, but had a slightly metallic taste that was unpleasant. There was some mild clove spice as well. The body was thick for the style with high carbonation. It had a quick finish with clove and bubble gum. I don’t remember how much I paid for this one, but I did like that it came in sixteen ounce pounder cans. This wasn’t a bad beer by any means, just not the best one that I’ve ever had. I don’t feel the need to revisit it.
