Faculty Brewing - Minzeweizen

Faculty Brewing - Minzeweizen

Faculty Brewing – #241 - Minzeweizen

ABV: 5.2% IBU: 09

 

One of Faculty Brewing’s classic offerings direct from their taps is the Minzeweizen. A mashup of peppermint and a hefeweizen, this wheat beer has a delicate peppermint aftertaste that finishes off the final flavours. I sometimes find wheat beer a bit overwhelming, but the subtle mint finish helps cleanse the palate and cool off the throat, preparing you for another swig.

 

I just visited Faculty to try some of their other brews, and I noticed the Minzeweizen is as of this writing, still available. This beer is great year round, and would pair well with leafy greens, sweet flavours, charcuterie, and breads. I haven’t tried it but I think it would also cut through and compliment oily foods fairly well.   

 

Head: Typical lasting head of a wheat; microbubbles; cloudy pour, quick separation/formation. It has an initial lace around the edge of the glass, but as the proteins are swilled off the top of the glass, the lace tended to go away.

 

Body: Light; opaque; yeasty, tan, grayish, bright yellow and yet grayish under a light.

 

Tastes: watery, but not unpleasant finish. I would tend to drink this on a summery warm day, but don’t let my opinion hold you back from trying this on any other occasion!

 

Availability: on tap or keg, like all their beers
