I Just cracked open the second beer of my LongShot 6 pack, Weizenbock. If you don’t know a Bock is an amber beer (its also my perfered beer at the bar) and Weizen is the german version of Belgian white beer. So with this combo your looking at something very different.
This beer is nice and light in taste (however the beer it’s self is very dark) and has a very complex flavor. It comes on with a bit of a bubblegum flavor, i know that sounds gross but thats the only way i can describe it, its not gross at all though, its quite good. You can taste cloves in it and it finishes like a Belgian white beer. I can’t even understand how he pulled off this flavor in such a dark beer.
Its a dark beer, that comes on like an amber beer(Taste), is as light as a light beer(goes down easy), and tastes like a belgian beer at the end(at least up there with white rascal). This is a very unique flavor and almost a perfect combo. I wish this wasn’t just a one time only seasonal because this would be something i would buy on a very regular basis.
Seriously, Get it wile you freaking can.
