A: 22 oz bottle w/ classic Portsmouth Brewery label w/ "Winter Weizen" hand-written in sharpie on the front. No freshness or bottling date. This beer pours with a towering creamy head, standing tall for awhile, then settling into a rocky yet igneous surface of at least 1/2 inch throughout. Beautiful cloudy golden color. Looks great.
S: Smells of freshly baked bread, ripe bananas, clove, and cinnamon. Like a loaf of banana bread.
T: First sip is bananas and spice, giving way to a strong wheat taste, finishes both buttery and cinnamon-fresh. The slightest tang. Tastes crisp with mild bittering hops paving the way for an oh-so smooth sweetness, but not cloying. This is like the best dessert ever.
M: Like drinking cumulonimbus clouds. A great body containing a light, delicate fizz with a slickness that keeps it sliding down the trap, begging you for another quaff. So luxurious and refreshing.
D: A perfect five for drinkability. You couldn't find a more drinkable beer. I could drink a gallon of this.
Notes: This is absolutely the best Weizen/Weizebock/Dunkelweizen I have ever had. Better than all the big name german ones, even. Kudos to Todd and Tyler for putting Portsmouth on the map, again. I wish this was a year-round brew.
