Red Hill Weizenbock 2012

Red Hill Brewery

Published August 1, 2012

The brewery may have closed its bar and restaurant last month, but the beers keep on coming. This time it's the return of a style that's cropping up a little more often around the Aussie craft beer world these days - the weizenbock, aka a strong wheat beer. It's a beautiful looking beer in the glass with a fluffed up pillow like ahead atop its cloudy brown body. It's one with plenty going on too; the label might talk of its chocolate flavours, but get it young and it's those big, fruity wheat beer esters that grab your attention first: banana, particularly. The chocolate (of the milky variety, we reckon) takes over afterwards, with some gently spicy hops and warming alcohol (it is 7.9% after all) completing the picture.
