A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #16 in a series – Emerson’s Weissbier.

Oh Hai!  I’m a bit partial to the Wheatbeer beer, and so I get around to one that’s been on the list for a while the Emerson’s Weissbier but often taken a back seat to some of the other more extravagant beers that I’ve been lucky to try of late.

Googlvating tells me “An especially imported Bavarian yeast strain gives Emerson’s Weissbier its authentic German character. The beer pours a cloudy, pale golden colour, and has a sweet bready aroma with notes of banana and sherbet. In the mouth the beer is spicy and tart, with some grainy sweetness. With age, Emerson’s WeissBier develops a clove-like aroma and the taste becomes softer and more cidery. Bottle Conditioned.”

It’s a 500ml bottle of  ABV 5.0% beer, so up there with the “premium” beers you get in smaller bottles. I did get the “cloudy’ that I sort of expected and you do get the lemon tang that is weissbier, so a sort of result. Frankly though a bit disappointing overall it’s not as zingy on the tounge, and fizzes away in the glass like a cheap firework.

So to the arbitrary pdubyah-o-meter this is a disappointing 6 from 10 stars. If you’re offering I’m drinking but if I’m out and buying I’ll have a closer look at the rest of the shelf first.
