The Boston Beer Company (Sam Adams) and Weihenstephan collaborated on this champagne style beer. Weihenstephan is the world’s oldest brewery and is located in Bavaria, Germany.
ABV = 10.3%
The beer comes in a beautiful 25.4 oz. (750 ml) caged and corked bottle. It pours out gold into a champagne glass. It has a huge head and great lacing. It is very bubbly as you would expect with a champagne style beverage. It is delicious but slightly sweet for my taste. The high alcohol content isn’t obvious (10.3%).
Grade = B+
I’m glad I picked up two of these at the Brookings Liquor Store. It is a bit pricy at $18.99. It is appropriate for a special occasion. I would recommend trying it if you like trying something different, festive & special.
