Ölbeat 293: Prykmestar Wehnäbock

Brewery: Vakka-Suomen Panimo (in Finnish)
Country: Finland
Style: Weizenbock
Abv: 6,2 %
What about the beer?
Colour is chocolate brown with a huge and fast-vanishing tan head. Aroma has sweet caramel malts, plums and banana. Taste begins with spiking fruity sweet bitterness. Sweet caramel malts and bitter fruits take over with ripe bananaish side tones. Towards the end bittersweet banana flavour comes through with some citrusy sourness. Aftertaste has sweet fruit, dry malts and bitter citrus.

Excellent fruity Weizenbock. Fruity bitterness matches beautifully with malty caramel - in the end wheat comes nicely through as the banana flavour. Vakka-Suomen Panimo truly masters the German styles and tunes them up with style.


One piece of tuned up German music - Neue Deutsche Härte style metal, that is - coming up!
