...in my beer of the month shipment. I could swear that they sent me this
one before but I won't complain. ;^)

Pennsylvania Penn Weizen. I also got a 3er of Penn Dark and
some...shit...from Montana. I probably won't *like* that stuff.lol.

Best regards,
Bill



Re: A nice little Hefe...
Update:
The Penn Dark is a *very* tasty lager! If you can get this one locally, buy
it!

Best regards,

What kind of shit from Montana? A few years back I attended a conference
in Whitefish and I visited Whitefish Brewing. I found the beers pretty
decent iirc.

this

Lang Creek Brewery Marion MT.

Got the Tri-Motor Amber(not bad) and the Huckleberry N' Honey..I hate beer
with honey in it!! It's, actually, not that bad either. <g>

Best regards,
Bill

well, that's outside my incredibly limited experience with Montana
beer...

heh, yeah it doesn't sound like something I'd like. Outside of Lambics
I'm not a big fan of fruit beers  - honey can be OK, but it's not my
favorite adjunct. Glad to hear they were at least "not bad"

Cheers,

Bill

Re: A nice little Hefe...
Ok, I just started sipping my second, of three, Penn Weizens. This stuff
rules!
Is there a better interpretation of a Bavarian style Wheat Beer in the US???

IMO, Ramstein Blonde and Weeping Radish Weizen both blow Penn away.

Re: A nice little Hefe...
I've heard of the Weeping Radish....
Is it the abundance of clove flavour that makes the Penn
inferior to the one's you mentioned?

I don't mind lots of clove, it was the lack of other weizen flavors
balancing it.  I tend to like ones with fruitier or yeastier characters
better than just plain old spice.  Don't recall much of that in the Penn.

I like the hefes with more of a banana flavor versus clove.   Dominion
(VA - 5 min driving distance from me) switched recipes over the past 3
years and now it's too spicy (clove flavor in abundance).  I had the
Weeping Radish hefe this weekend at the Dominion Beerfest and it was
pretty good..   I like it better than Widmier (no taste that strikes
my fancy) and Shiner's hefe.   My favorite is still Franziskaner.

Howdy, neighbor.  There wasn't much for weizens at the Dominion fest
this year.  Last year there were a bunch--Victory had their Sunrise
there, and I like that one.  I was also hoping Brooklyn Weisse would be
in, as it's now being bottled and I'd hoped that they'd be pushing it.
Darn good one.

Dominion switched their summer wheat this year from a hefe to a witbier,
so it's definitely going to be a lot spicier.  And yeah, Widmer?  The
archetypical American Wheat.  Boring as hell, nothing much in terms of
banana, clove, yeast, or much of anything else.

Personally, I'll take Weihenstephaner Hefe myself, but Franziskaner's
darn good stuff as well.  Nothing's better in summer than a good hefe or
killer pils. --

Yeah, The Franziskaner is really good and available here...as is their
Dunkel variation.It's also pretty tasty.

Btw, I'm really fond of the taste of bananas in some beers like New
Belgium's Abbey and Tripel.
