Beer Review: Bavarian-Styled Doppel Weizen


Beer Name: Bavarian-Styled Doppel Weizen

Price: $7.99 for a 22 oz. Bottle

ABV: 9.00%

Style: Weizenbock

Brewery: Lagunitas Brewing Company

Color: Poured an orange-amber color. Head was thin and white in color. This was poured into my big ass beer mug.

Aroma: The smell was a bit complex. I got tones of sweet banana bread, alcohol and a hint of spice.

Flavor: This Weizenbock really threw me back at first sip. Although there were was a smell of banana nut bred in this brew, I honestly did not get it in the taste, but what did get me was the alcohol, and not in a bad way. The taste i really got was malty and sugary.

Finish: With the light carbonation the aftertaste was malty and a bit bitter.

Comments: I have yet to try a Lagunita’s brew I did not like (have I said this before? Well if I did, then it must be true). This Doppel Weizen was yet another brew by Lagunitas that I really enjoyed. I will not lie, after this bottle I was a bit on the buzzed end. From the greeting smell of banana nut bread, to the malty flavor and aftertaste, this brew was quite enjoyable. The high ABV was no joke, and you could tell the alcohol content in the smell and taste, definitely not a sleeper. This was my first Doppel Weizen experience and I am glad I chose from one of my favorite breweries. This brew had all the complexities in the smell, but left your taste buds to due the work in dissecting in the taste. Very good Doppel. I have been trying to branch out from my usual IPAs, Porters, Stouts, and Pale Ales to other styles I have never tried before. I Would like to try it again to see If maybe I can notice the banana nut in the taste. Will definitely try again to verify. Cheers Lagunitas on another beautiful creation.
