In far-away 2006, in a beer hall in Philly, at the end of a long road, we share our first beer with a Friestaat Bayern Brewer enharmonically named; Wolfgang. At stake, over a Pils, was whether or not Lagunitas would purchase from him a new 80bbl brewhouse. It was a lot of money. Playing Sileus to my Brewery’s chariot, together- with the benefit of the lager- we forded the emotional-economic crevasse and commissioned the brewhouse. Unforseeable at the time would be the need for even more brewing capacity today. So, for the umpteenth time in our short history, we lurch down that increasingly familiar road towards new brewhouses, fermentation tanks, and the like. The actual installation bears a strong resemblance to a heart transplant, on an awake patient, performed on the backside of a galloping horse, or at very least in tow behind Dionysus’ trustworthy Silenus. Some is good, more is better. The good news is; It’s still us! Call us. 707.769.4495

    reviewed this several years ago, and loe and behold here in the hinterland it appeared one again...so...this is NOT Vitus..Vitus has a front of airplane glue...this first sip is rubbing alcohol...of course the brewery tried to Ruin it with dry hops but were defeated by the yeast...due to the 8.7 abv...the wood alcohol taste fades...this is damn sure not Aventinus...what is...still for me $$ best that the louts those silly buggers at Lagunitas produce...like a lost love hello baby put it on me!!! But beware come morning..I detect a Katta....ya know why ya lost her!

    Poured into a Weizen glass. A light amber color with a foamy two finger white head. Some clinging lacing. There is a constant stream of tiny bubble eminating from the bottom of my glass, like champagne. Aromas of lightly toasted wheat with notes of banana and grapefruit. Taste follows the smells with the grapefruit and banana leading the way with bready wheat notes, cloves, a bit of yeast and some herbal hops. Mouthfeel is full for the style. At 8.7% abv, it packs a bit of a wallop. An interesting beer. Now I want to try some authentic German versions of the style for comparison.
