Craft Beer Review – Phillips Schottleweizen

Phillips Schottleweizen

Phillips – Schottleweizen: This oddly named dunkleweizen wheat beer is brewed in Victoria, BC at a strength of 7.5% and was enjoyed in a 22 oz beer glass to help turn down the evening as the sun went down.

Aroma and Appearance: Pours a dark amber-brown with 2 fingers of foam and loads of small bubbles in the beer. The aroma is plums, cherries, dates and sugary sweet.

Flavour: Primarily dates, raisins, plums, caramel and toffee with a thicker mouth feel and an overall sweetness to it and spice throughout.

Overall Impression: I thought this was tasty, sweet and wheaty an worked in a way that was as odd as it’s name.

Rating: I give it a 8/10 (excellent), I didn’t expect to like this one so much as I did to be honest.

Food Pairing: Salty meat pairs well with dark and fruity beers, I had ham and cheese slices with it and it was great.
