Day #84 – Joseph James Weize Guy

March 26, 2011

Getting a late start on day 84.  I spent the afternoon at the Rahr & Sons Brewery and feel quite tired now.  I’ll push through in the sense of honor and journalism!

Joseph James Weize Guy

Joseph James Brewing Company has only very recently come into the craft beer scene.  They are based out of Henderson, Nevada.  This is classified as a German Hefeweizen and is very light as it comes in at 3.5% ABV.

The appearance of this beer is rather disgusting to be honest.  It is cloudy/murky golden orange with a brownish mix in the color.  There is a foamy white head that dissipates quickly, but the biggest component in the appearance are the large chunks of yeast floating in it.  Unfiltered for sure.

The aroma is very yeasty which is expected due to the large chunks of sediment in the pour.  Spicy yeast, grains and some lemony notes as well.

Flavor is spiced lemon and coriander, with a big grain flavor mixed with bread and yeast.  There is a punchy type flavor in the finish that stays with the drinker for awhile.  This is odd, and almost overdone with the spicy flavors.  Hmm, I’ll have to think on this one some more.

Cheers!
