This contribution is from one of our most involved and passionate members from northern NSW.  Take it away, Joe McDonald…..

The Weizenbock beer was introduced by the first family of wheat beers in 1907.  Contrary to the bottom fermenting German lager (Bock), a Weizenbock is the top fermenting wheat ale version that combines characteristics of a Hefeweizen and a Doppelbock. Essentially, it is a winter wheat beer originally brewed in Bavaria, Germany. 

I could smell the pineapple as soon as I pulled the can open. It poured a little cloudy, a little dark straw colour, not too much carbonation and an easy pour. 

The pineapple taste is clear, but it’s balanced with citrus notes, lemon I think with a lovely malty honey taste. It’s got a lovely thick mouthfeel which must be the wheat/oats. It’s got a little funkiness to it, but it wouldn’t be Uiltje if it wasn’t a little special. 

It’s not too sweet, not really sour and not too fruity, it’s perfectly balanced yet complex. It’s actually a very drinkable and refreshing beer that disguises it’s 8.5%.  This may not be a classic Wiezenbick but when does the little Uitje Owl do anything mainstream, as the can says....’decoding beer with a hackers list for provocation’.
