18 June 2010
As we approach mid-June I wanted everyone in the studio to finally experience a full-on traditional Bavarian-style unfiltered wheat beer. Rather than run out and pick up Weihenstephaner or one of the other German wheats, I decided to go for a locally-brewed traditional and seasonal wheat. This is a perfect beer for summer and a perfect beer to sample yourself
Today’s beer comes to us from Adamstown, PA. The brewery is Stoudt’s and our Beer of the day is their Heifer-in-Wheat. So I’ll admit I love the name and it’s and interesting play on words for sure. I’ll let you google “Heifer” and see for yourself ;)
Heifer in Wheat has the traditional tastes of, banana, clove and maybe even the mystical bubblegum flavor that I never seem to completely get. Perhaps the bubblegum portion of my taste buds is broken, but I almost taste it in this beer. I was also surprised to hear this beer is only a 50% wheat malt. You’d never know it by the taste.
So what about show chatter you say? We’re excited to have Beer Solutions on board and the show has been a blast. Yes I occasionally get all marble-mouthed, and I occasionally still forget to breath..but it’s getting better. I’m starting to really understand John, Nancy and Joe and that makes it a lot more fun. We’re mapping out some beer-guests to appear in the future, some beer appearances for the Friday Beerbuzz Team, and I’m of course mapping out some good beers and some fun to go along with them…so stay tuned and see what happens.
So what beer should we taste next Friday? You beer-input is always appreciated so please comment or e-Mail us. Thanks to John, Nancy, Joe & Bosco for yet another fun Friday.
The Friday Beerbuzz…bringing good beers and good people together.
