Grab A Beer: Baron Uber-Weisse

Baron Uber-Weisse
Alcohol by Volume: 8.2%

Intro: Baron Brewing is located in Seattle and is known for their German-style beers. Their brewery is located in the South Park neighborhood, and you can find many of their beers around Seattle and at the brewery-affiliated Pillager’s Pub in Greenwood.

Description: Dark brown with a hint of red. Thin head. Tastes of chocolate, light caramel, Belgian spice, bananas and has a minimal bitter finish. Medium body and drinks pretty light for it’s 8.2% ABV. No sour fruit in my glass, as some of the reviews on BA and RB note. Not that I need a higher ABV on this, but it really does seem a bit subdued.

Verdict: Worth Trying
Availability: Available in 22oz bottles at local Seattle bottle shops year-round.
