11 Apr Day 3 (#30Beers30Days)
This is tough post for me. I love beer – duh. But I LOVE wheat beers. And
today, I decided to go ahead and review one. It shouldn’t be such a big deal. But I’m sure there’s something you love the way I love wheat brews. And if you had to drink, rate and compare it against itself, can’t you imagine how tough that would be? Like in Kill Bill with the whole Hattori Hanzo sword thing…it’s hard to compare it to anything else, including itself.
So today, I’ve tried my very best to rate what I consider the best style of brew ever made: a hefeweizen. Today’s guest: Mr. Henry Weinhard (4.8% ABV, Oregon) — a classic, German wheat beer brewed with a touch of honey by the Lat 44 brewery. As the name suggests, this weizen is brewed with yeast of the hefe variety – that’s where you get the cloudy hue and the yummy yeasty sediment in the bottom of the bottle. The Weinhard brew embodies everything we expect from a good weizen…light, crisp and airy with a faint fruity flavor. It’s brewed with a touch of honey that would have been easily masked had I added a squeeze of lemon as one usually does with a German wheat. It was highly carbonated and created a perfect, thick and fluffy head. It would go nice with a light cheese and fruit tray or a salad.
I don’t have anything else to say about this beer. Which is already becoming pretty lame since it’s day 3 and all I have to say are good things! That either means I’m good a picking beers, or I do not discriminate whatsoever when it comes to drinking them! At any rate, my grade: A. Again
