Review - Portsmouth Brewery's Weizenheimer
"This unfiltered, light-bodied American wheat ale is brewed with forty percent wheat malt and just enough hops for tangy, thirst-quenching refreshment. One of our most popular offerings, it is an excellent choice for those looking for a lighter beer. " -- Portsmouth Brewery
From the bomber, the Weizenheimer pours a light honey hue with a clean, white fizzy head that leaves thin lacing on the glass. The crystal clear body displays light carbonation, and a fully diminishing head. The aroma is doughy, like a raw pizza dough ball, and also of sweet toasted light bread, cookie malts and a hay/barnyard scent. Up front, the taste is doughy with a nice sweetness, and as we move to the finish, we get just the lightest hint of bitterness. On the mouthfeel, it has busy carbonation and a slighty dryness that keeps it interesting.
