Beer 243/365 – Great Lakes Lorelei Dunkelweizen

Great Lakes Lorelei Dunkelweizen

Style: Dunkelweizen

ABV: 5.10%

Purchased at: Great Lakes Brewery – Cleveland Ohio

What makes this beer different: One of the doughiest tasting beers ever.

Will I be drinking this again: I wish they bottled the stuff, but they don’t so probably not.

Grade: A

7/9/2010: Decided to take a weekend away with the girlfriend to the great mistake by the lake: Cleveland Ohio. Okay seriously I feel bad for the city though, they just lost Lebron James to the Miami Heat. Lebron was literally the only thing this city had sports-wise. We were there the day after the announcement, and great lakes already started brewing a beer called “Quitness;” A dry hopped ipa that will leave a bitter aftertaste.

I always scratched my head when I read reviews on Beer Advocate describing beer as doughy, but I now understand without question. It smells a lot like when you roll out fresh dough for bread, and a bit nutty. The flavor is like taking a bite into a slice of banana bread right out of the oven. Fresh grains, banana, a little bit of nuttiness, a hint of vanilla, and some fresh hops in the background. The mouth-feel is perfect for the style, medium to medium heavy. Great Lakes doesn’t offer a lot of brewpub exclusives, but this one made up for the lack of selection. Very tasty.

Picture of the day: Haha tell me that this isn’t the truth.
