Royal Weisse Ale
(Sly Fox Brewing Company)

Royal Weisse Ale is a spring/summer canned offering as compared to their Dunkel Lager which is their fall/winter offering. One light and one dark. Be sure to time your trips to Pennsylvania accordingly.

From the Sly Fox site:

"An unforgettable Bavarian style Wheat Beer brewed with German Pils and Wheat malts and hopped with German Northern Brewer hops. This beer is unfiltered and served in a traditional wheat beer glass at our pubs. Medium bodied, tan in color, fruity."

Here we go...

Pour - light golden in color, sort of a tannish orangish color but the light makes it look a little paler. Some cloudiness as well. Nice fluffy head that fades and leaves some nice lacing. 

 

Aroma - all the aromas you've grown to love about this style are their. We're talking banana, clove, bubble gum along with some lemon and orange. 

 

Taste - citrusy, biscuity, bananas, cloves along with a touch of sweetness a la apple sauce or juice. Plenty of estery goodness imparted by the yeast which gives this beer so much flavor. A tad bit of spiciness in the finish from the hops. Solid.

 

Overall - a solid hefeweizen from the folks at Sly Fox. They've taken a hard to can style and made it taste so simple. Great stuff, definitely worth trying if you can find it. If you're a big fan of wheat beers than this is for you. 

 

Availability -  Spring/Summer 

 

Would I buy more of it? - possibly but I think I'd probably end up grabbing some of their newly canned 113 IPA!

 

Note - Sly Fox operates brewpubs in both Phoenixville and Royersford, Pennsylvania. A lot of their beers take their names from the surrounding area such as their 113 IPA, Pikeland Pils and of course Phoenix Pale Ale.
