When the wife grabbed it, I was actually excited for a Beau’s beer. I’ve heard great things about it, and I’m a fan of wit biers. Every time since then when I ask Katherine to grab me a beer, she asks “The wolf beer?” I was waiting for a nice warm day to sit outside and enjoy it, but with the crappy weather we’ve been having this summer, it seemed like that day would never come. I decided one day to just drink it.
“Yes Katherine, the wolf beer”
So, between making spaghetti sauce and cooking taco meat for dinner, I opened it up. What’s this? The label says hopfenweisse! Oh hells yes. Now I’m even more excited. But what glass to use? Weisse glass or IPA glass? Lucky for me, the bottle was 600 ml and wouldn’t fit into just one glass….so the wife suggested I use both, to see which would be better suited for this beer. The weisse glass ended up with a huge head. It was cloudy and bright yellow and it smelled like a wit bier.
It tasted like the best liquid to ever come out of Vankleek Hill, Ontario! It had a nice, light wit flavour with a bitter, hoppy booty. It was amazing. No orange or coriander needed for this one. It was clean and delicious all the way through.
If they sold this year-round, I would have one at least once a month (or week…probably week)
BTW, it tasted way better out of the weisse glass.
