Sly Fox Royal Weisse

Style: Hefeweizen

ABV: 5.4%

Purchased at: Giant Eagle Market District – Robinson PA

What makes this beer different: Tons of citrus and banana flavor going on.

Will I be drinking this again: Yup! Actually bought a case for my birthday golf outing next week. Its on of the only decent wheat beers I can find in a can.

Grade: B+

7/31/2010: I am ashamed to say this is my very first Sly Fox beer. Ashamed because its a brewery from my homestate of Pennsylvania, and I like to try as many local beers as possible. Not sure why I waited until now, as they usually are pretty accessible at all the local six pack shops. I need to pick up their pikeland pils at some point also.

The nose of Royal Weisse is all about banana, with a squeeze of lemon. Lots of fruity flavor going on here. Mostly banana, but not fresh banana. It reminds me more of banana flavored candy. There is also a lot of tart lemon for a hefe. The body is about medium, but very well carbonated which makes this a good summer beer. If the banana flavor was a bit fresher, I would have bumped this up to an A-.

Picture of the day: This is actually a video. Justin Bieber gets what he deserves.
