296/2114) Home:  König Ludwig Weissbier by König Ludwig Gmbh & Co. of Germany:  *1/2;  5.5%;  brewed with wheat and barley malts and "hop extract";  also released as Prinzregent Luitpold Wessbier Hell;  pours hazy;  it has the sort of nose I tend to associate with rye based beers, sharp and spiced;  flavours of cloves, gingery spices, lemon zest;

The Bavarian royal family held sole rights to brew Hefeweizens in excess of two hundred years.


297/2115) Home:  Bent Spoke by MacLean's Ales of Ontario:  *1/2;  3.9%;  a "sessionable ale" from their "low gear session series";  pours clear and golden;  herbal, lemony nose;  lemony notes with a bitter resiny finish;  a fine effort but something seems to be missing;

298/2116) Home:  Found Bikes Ride Faster by Big Rig of Ontario:  **;  a 6.0% Experimental Pale Ale brewed in collaboration with Great Lakes Brewing to mark their 30th anniversary using "an experimental hop" details of which, including its name, remain obscure;  strawberry tea-like nose;  citrusy flavours with strawberry and melon;  definitely off centre but very nice indeed;


A pair of bicycle-themed beers.
