I just read a new study saying that alchohol is more deadly and harmful than all other drugs by far.....I was persuaded to think beer is worse than meth or crack....

Blue Moon (C+)
It's a wheat beer and leans toward the citrussy side. Nothing special or noteworthy. Nice and simple. Maybe a good beginner hefe?
Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse (A+)
My favorite hefe to date. The banana note is so dominating and delicious. One of the few beers that I have trouble drinking slow and savoring. This stuff goes down fast and smooth.
Sierra Nevada Kellerweis Hefeweizen (A+)
* NOTE: I had this on tap.
Okay, I know I said the Franziskaner was my favorite hefe, but I'm actually still debating it and considering this beer instead. Imagine this as the lemony/citrussy version of the Franziskaner. So, instead of being dominantly banana-ey, its citrussy. I was at the pub today and I finished this beer before the appetizers even came.
Irish Car Bomb (A)
Delirium tremens (also referred to as The D.T.'s) is an acute episode of delirium that is usually caused by withdrawal from alcohol, first described in 1813.

You know what's weird, I don't taste the banana at all in Franki piss water (that's what my friend calls it), and I hate bananas. I've had other beers with a banana flavor and I dislike them thoroughly, but I love Franki piss water.

TOP TIER! A++++! Not for tasting, it's for getting drunk, FAST. And in fact it doesn't taste bad when downed in one go.

ok guys i'm a beer expert, but i'm not gonna post paragraphs about beer in here. i just want to mention that all these reviews of german wheat beers that talk about cloves and bananas are crazy. PURITY LAW there is ONLY 4 ingredients. ALL of those flavors come from the water, malts, hops, or yeast that they use. the germans are VERY good at interpreting different flavors with their choice of what and yeast but NONE of those beers have more than the 4 ingredients i just listed.
the BELGIAN wheat beers however generally contain coriander and orange or grapefuit peel.
i also wanted to post in this thread to cry about how i got drunk last night and split up my 6 pack of 2007 avery mephistopheles.

Lastly, I tried a bottle of Chimay Grand Reserve (Blue) for Christmas. I guess I can really taste the quality/expensiveness. The color was a really strange dirty black-brown. But wow, for a 9% ABV ale, it tasted nothing like I expected. If I recall, it was almost satin smooth in feel with a nice fruity flavor. Me and the fam couldn't taste or smell the alcohol at all. It was masked so well that I would have thought it was a regular 4-5% ABV beer. In the end, I don't think I'll be buying this again. $12 a bottle? Psssssshhhh. It's a one-time-try beer for a special occasion for me.

ok so if wheat isn't allowed (which it totally is)
how do you explain the PLETHORA of wheat beers being made in germany for almost 1000 years? you know, like Weihenstephaner... the oldest brewery in the world dating back to 1040 who puts out like 4 different wheat beers?
and yes... i work with over 400 beers on a daily basis. i know what i'm talking about.
