Beer #158 - Glockenspiel Weizenbock, Great Lakes Brewing Company, Cleveland Ohio
Our next beer is the fist I've tried from the Great Lakes Brewing Company. My friend Dave brought it back to me from a recent trip he took to the area. Let's give it a try...
It pours a deep reddish hue.
The aroma is yeast with barley and wheat tones. There is mild sweetness apparent, as well.
Yeast and mild spice greet the palate straight off. The body reveals wheat while maintaining the spice and yeast. The hops balance everything back before the beer finishes strong with intense barley, alcohol and wheat tones.
The aftertaste is yeast with wheat. It finishes with a full body that lingers nicely.
It's probably hard to find, but worth it if you can!!!
